Delhi is divided among various sections and zones. You will find every section different and unique from another. There are various tourist places and monuments to visit with friends and families. There are places with historical backgrounds of Delhi with reference to British India, Mughal Empire and Delhi Sultanate. It includes Red fort, Jama masjid, Meena Bazaar, Chandni chowk, famous Gurudwaras, Temples and market places from which we have mentioned some of them for your references. Third one is my favorite and I find it very amusing to go repeatedly.
5 Must Visit Places in Delhi
1. Red Fort
When you are in Delhi, Red Fort near Chandni Chowk is one of the best tourist places to visit. It will give you a fusion of ancient India, Persian and hindu traditions. It was created by Shahjahan in the 17th century, specifically for changing the Mughal capital from Agra to Delhi. Its name derived from the red sandstone which was used for the whole complex. Don’t forget to go for the light and sound show (Historic) in the evening when you visit the place. You can also visit Jama Masjid (Biggest mosque in India) near the Fort.
2. India Gate
The best picnic spot in Lutyens’ Delhi. A centre of attraction for its history, design and the footfall specially during national holidays. Best time to visit at night for the lighted tricolor Indian Flag at the top of the Monument. It was formerly named “All India War Memorial”, established in 1921 for 70,000 British Indian Soldiers who died in between 1914-21. There is a structure beneath the archway named Amar Jawan Jyoti (Flame of the Immortal Soldiers) as the tomb of the unknown soldiers in Bangladesh Liberation War 1972. It has subliminal views in different seasons and different hours of the day.
3. Delhi Haat
One of the famous markets of Delhi, established by Delhi Tourism in 2010. It is situated near INA metro station and has different sections of market under the Haat itself. Different sections as per Indian tradition and background. The entrance is open from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm. If you have a keen interest in Indian ethnic wear and decoratives, Delhi Haat is the best place to visit. Food junctions are also available and serve many different cuisine and fast food from different sections of India.
4. Akshardham Temple
The biggest hindu temple complex in India was created under Swaminarayan Sanstha. Here you will find a great ambience for peace and mental wellness. People come here on weekends with their families and friends to chill out and enjoy the ambience. Here you will not find saints and priests like other hindu temples but a well managed system to enter the complex under the supervision of security officials. Camera and media devices are not allowed under the complex to make it a place to roam freely and capture the moment in your minds rather than your devices.
5. Connaught place and nearby
It is the financial hub of Delhi and believed to be the centre of New Delhi, where you will find several markets such as Georgian buildings of showrooms and expensive shops, underground market known as Palika Bazaar for cheap and quality garments and Janpath market. You will also find Gurudwara Bangla Sahib and Jantar Mantar within a range of 5-10 kms. It is more of a package full of different sites and market places in a single visit. It is surrounded by different official buildings and Embassies. Don’t forget to check the central park when you visit the place.
