Best things to do in Delhi and sightseeing in Delhi

Many people tend to get confused between Delhi and New Delhi. To be precise, New Delhi is the later development done to Delhi or Old Delhi. The Old Delhi was the place that the Mughal kings ruled for centuries. This part has most of the old monuments, palaces and buildings. New Delhi comes under the same government and started becoming popular much after independence in spite of being a creation of the British Raj. This part is made up of the best restaurants, clubs, cafes, contemporary and modern museums, offices and other extensions. Malls are also an important feature of New Delhi which makes it different from the old markets of Old Delhi.

Red Fort - Delhi

One of the most important monuments in the cultural as well as political scenario of India, the Red Fort is the pride of the capital city of Delhi. It was once the capital of Shahjanabad named after Emperor Shah Jahan. It was during his reign that this awesome monument took its form between 1638 and 1648. The whole structure was named Red Fort or Lal Qila due to the basic material of architecture which is sandstone. It served as the residence of the Mughal Kings for almost 200 years. Later when India became independent, the first Prime Minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru hoisted the National Flag here and the ritual is still carried on. Every year the Independence Day celebrations are organized here.

India Gate - Delhi

This is the pride of Delhi that was earlier known as the All India War Memorial. This monument was built by the Lutyens in the memory of all the 90000 soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the welfare of their country during the World War I. The names of each of the soldiers are inscribed on the walls of the monument. The Amar Jawan Jyoti or the Eternal Flame burns here 24 hours as a symbol of remembrance of the brave warriors. On the opposite side of the monument is the very controversial canopy where was once placed the marble statue of Prince George which was later removed from here.

This outstanding stone archway instantly ignites a feeling of patriotism and thus is a major tourist place in Delhi. Also known by the name of All India War Memorial, this prestigious monument is a mark of respect to all those unknown soldiers who have sacrificed their lives protecting an entire nation. At night, india gate looks so mesmerizing that you just cant miss the moment. India gate is a perfect place to end your day.

Chandni Chowk - Delhi

This is probably the largest and the oldest market that is there in Delhi for the past more than three centuries. This was the place where initially merchants from Turkey, Holland and other places used to visit during their business trips to India. The oldest merchants who have shops inside this market are known to have been carrying on the same business generations after generations. The true colors of Delhi can be enjoyed in this place. If you are a shopaholic then this is a must visit during your trip. The specialty of this place is that you feel like buying whatever you see out here. the main shops here are Dariba Kalan, known for pearl, gold and silver jewelry, Gulab Singh Johri Mal for attars or perfumes, Khari Baoli for spice shopping. The Kinari Bazaar is the zardosi den for all females and the Katra Neel for all kinds of fabrics. The Bhagirath Palace is Asia’s largest market of electronic goods and the Moti Bazar is famous for shawls and pearls.
The most contrasting scene in comparison to the streets of well-planned New Delhi is this main street of Old Delhi. As one of the oldest and busiest markets in India, its narrow winding lanes are full of inexpensive jewellery, fabric, and electronics. It is also an excellent venue to sample Delhi’s exemplary street food. The street food of chandni chowk is worth trying.

Qutub Minar - Delhi

This beautiful monument in the Mehrauli area of New Delhi was built in the 12th century by Emperor Qutub- Ud- Din- Aibak and was finally completed by his son-in-law, Iltutmish, who succeeded him. The monument is made up of 5 levels with projecting balconies on each level. The specialty of the monument is that each level is different from the others in terms of size and designs. This is what makes it even more spectacular. The verses from the Holy Koran of the Muslims are carved on the walls of the monument and the lattice work is remarkable too. The controversy surrounding this monument says that this was originally a Hindu monument, built much before the 12th century. It is also said that Aibak only renovated it by replacing the Hindu Stone designs with Islamic ones. Till now one side of the monument walls have Hindu designs on them and the outer part is adorned with ornamental Islamic designs. The monument has been damaged by natural forces and calamities many a times but has been repaired again and again. This is the reason why it stands strong even after so long.
Tallest minaret in the world.

New Delhi - Delhi

If you can explore one place in India, let it be its capital, New Delhi. This modern city offers everything that a city traveller could possibly want – chaos, quiet, spirituality, history, culture and food. Delhi is said to be one of the oldest existing cities in the world. This ancient city never stops growing. The Mughal and British, the two main empires who invaded the city, have left a deep mark on its face and infrastructure. Their monuments and mausoleums lie scattered across the city, such as India Gate, Jama Masjid, Humayun’s Tomb, Qutub Minar, Purana Qila and the Lodhi Gardens. The iconic Red Fort or Lal Qila, built of sandstone, has been standing tall since 1648 and was the brainchild of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. You can participate in the celebration of modern Indian art at Akshardham, a wondrous house of worship. The colossal, Lotus Temple is a centre of Baha'i faith and is a peaceful refuge from the breathlessness of the city. The city has a rich and colourful character, which is visible in its chaotic bazaars such as Janpath, Sarojini Nagar, Dilli Haat and Chandni Chowk – all heavens for shopaholics. You may splurge at the high-end restaurants and pubs all across Delhi, but do not miss out on the street food. Connaught Place, Chanakyapuri and the Parliament Street stretch, everything contributes to the grandeur New Delhi is. If you’re touring Delhi, Paharganj is a good choice for inexpensive lodging with good connectivity.
As Mumbaikars stop at Shri Sidhi Vinayak Temple for Lords blessings, we Delhites stops at Murthal, to have Chefs blessings, served as in stuffed paranthas and load of white butter on it. This is how we 30 bike riders from across the globe started our 14 days journey from Delhi to Upper Himalayas. Still unknown faces and still unknown driving pattern. First day and first 500 kms from Delhi to Pathankot was to recognise which bike to follow. Evening swimming session at the rooftop of the Pathankot hotel is like the perfect Spa session after riding in extremely hot conditions and wearing all the riding gears. Evening ended very fast so as the sleep.

It is the largest mosque in India and is one of it's kind. The view from Jama Masjid is marvellous and one can see the rooftops and terraces of Delhi. When i had visited this place, I really had no clue that you have to be very decently dressed like hands should be covered. So I had to take a duppata on my head. So before going to the mosque, one should be dressed properly. There is no entry fees for this place and he mosque closes before sunset so you will have to visit this place before sunset.

Sunset at Hauz Khas village By the time I finished my lunch it was 4 in the evening and so I asked my friend if he was in for going to the Hauz Khas fort and thankfully he got ready . Hauz Khas fort along with its peaceful lake view sometimes makes it hard to believe that this place is in Delhi, where there is always so much hustle and bustle. So as we reached there I grabbed on to my favorite spot in the fort , from where you can see the whole lake and enjoyed the sunset with a nice drink. The lake with old trees growing out of it, along with the deer park in the background and the historical setting of the fort like always made it a perfect sunset view.

Humayun's Tomb - Delhi

Humayun's Tomb is one of the most important monuments of the city and a perfect example of wonderful Islamic architecture was made by Mirak Mirza Ghiyas, a Persian architect. The initiative to make this monument was taken by Humayun’s senior widow Bega Begum. The monument is considered as a precursor of the Taj Mahal in terms of beauty. It was built in 1565 AD and is located on the crossing of the Lodi Road and Mathura Road. The main features of this monument are the beautiful gardens, fountains and of course the double domed mausoleum. Apart from Humayun’s tomb, there are many other Mughal rulers who have their mausoleums built in here.
6. Humayun Tomb: Red sandstone and the magnificent marble stone define this tomb. Pay a visit here and you will know what paradise is! This structure has a lush green garden and a clear river flowing –the sight of which is so breathtaking. Known to be a refugee camp in India, it now has many graves within it. Constructed by Bega Begum in memory of her husband Humayun, it is said to have been inspirational for Shah Jahan to build the Taj Mahal. Just 5 kms off Humayun’s Tomb is the lesser known Agrasen ki Baoli, Baoli meaning ‘step well’. A unique architecture surrounds this 14th century well. A monument protected by the ASI or Archaeological Survey of India, it has over a hundred steps immersed in water. This hidden gem, though a difficult find, is worth spending at least half a day. Walk in and explore...

On my way to Humayun’s tomb, I stopped for a bit at Bangla Sahib Gurudwara. It is considered as the biggest Gurudwara in Delhi. I so totally loved this place. It is so very peaceful and it always feels good to see people volunteering to help others. I do not have a pic of this Gurudwara. Sometimes, it is more of you just want to feel the place and be part of it than anything else. Humayun’s tomb and Qutub Minar were on top of my list of must see places in Delhi. I’m still sad at the fact that I couldn’t get to Jama Masjid. But, I shall get there someday and explore. Humayun’s tomb is one masterpiece. Keep aside atleast one hour to witness the beauty of it. If the artisans were still here with us today, I so would have wanted their autographs ! Humayun’s tomb is the manifestation of love by Emperor Humayun’s first wife Bega Begum. She got this done in his memory.

A beautiful monument from the Mughal Period where the marvel lies in the construction of the architecture is the true delight of visiting this place. It is so built that all 4 quarters are similar. This is also one of the features of Mughal Architecture where equal spacing is created in the four directions for the view for the guards to stay similar. The Jharokhas and the Nakkashis are worth appreciating for. Humayun's Tomb is way inside and is first followed by a huge garden and then the monument.

Purana Qila - Delhi

This is yet another of the Mughal gems and a clear picture of the standard and grandeur of the Mughal designs and styles. It was started by Emperor Humayun but later taken over by Sher Shah Suri. Later Humayun again captured it from Sher Shah’s son. The Purana Qila is said to have been built at the banks of the River Yamuna when it had not changed its course and guarded the estate of Indraprastha, mentioned in the Mahabharata. This is also the only monument that has not been named after the one who built it as all the structures inside this was named and renamed with the transfer of ownership every time. The main motive behind the initiation of this monument was that Humayun wanted to build a city on his own. There are three main gateways inside the fort namely Humayun Darwaza, Bara Darwaza and the Talaqui Darwaza. Among these the last one was always closed. The other famous structures inside the Purana Qila are the Qila-e-Kunha Masjid, Sher Mandal observatory and a small museum.
Purana Qila is one of the oldest forts in India. An admirable quality of this monument is that those not fascinated by history can also enjoy the place because of its sprawling spaces. Surrounded by a moat through which once the Yamuna meandered, has made way for a man-made lake offering boat rides. The fort is also famous because Humanyun, the Mughal Emperor died falling from the second floor, while he was hurrying for evening prayers.

We leave again to our last stop for the day – Akshardham Temple(no photos allowed, so I’ll make the description as detailed as I can). It was almost 5:30pm and that meant we’d miss the exhibition. Oh and before I forget, you are not allowed to carry anything into the temple. No mobiles, no cameras and not even a big handbag. So it’s better to leave your stuff in your car or hotel room or you’d have to waste another hour keeping and retrieving it from the cloak room. We didn’t have to waste that hour as we didn’t bring any such thing. As soon as we entered the temple complex, we rushed to the ticket counter and luckily made it in time for the last show. The first thing that strikes you when you go to an Akshardham temple is its beautiful architecture. With intricate patterns on marble and brilliant sculptures all around, it sure is a treat for the eyes. The exhibition starts off in a theatre where they show a short movie about Swaminarayan and how he gave up everything at 11 years of age and how he attained his spiritual excellence by 21 years. The movie ends and the entire crowd rushes into the exit to the next hall. This seems pretty funny as people are rushing to get the best seats. In the end, some people are left standing. As soon as this show ends, the people standing there rush and get the best seats. Rat race even here! :P But at least everyone is happy. Anyway, this room doesn’t exactly look like a room. This place has a huge tree with statues of many kids playing all around it. Some of them are on the tree and some are playing below it. There is a small lake and a set of seats in a semi-circle beyond it. There are a couple of statues of fishermen standing in the lake. Suddenly, the kid in the middle starts speaking. His hands move, so do his head, lips and everything else. He even blinks his eyes like a real kid. It is a robot which seems just like a real kid. Then the fishermen speak, move hands and even look at us. The whole scene is mesmerizing. It is a story of how the kid in the middle, Swaminarayan makes the fishermen give up fishing because it is a sin to take lives of creatures. Next we step into a corridor and see that it is raining there. Literally. There is even thunder rumbling and we see the front portion of a house. A small boy is walking out of the house and getting drenched in the rain. This one is a still statue but the scene is so real that if we move close to the house, we’ll also get drenched. We then walk through caves and the swami as a child walking through jungles and crossing rivers. The scenes are complete with trees and creepers and snakes. We cross a bridge over a stream and see the swami sitting on a rock in the flowing stream with snakes slithering next to him. Do not get unfazed – all that I’m describing are statues, not real snakes or people. These rooms depict the journey of Swaminarayan across India through the wilderness. After this we enter the open balcony of a village house. We see many life sized statues of people doing different activities. So basically, we have a bird’s eye view of the entire house from the top. Swaminarayan is teaching the inmates. He speaks, nods and blinks. As we look up, we see a blue sky painted. We really get the feel of being inside a village complete with people and everything. The next room is even more awesome. Swami is sitting on a chair and the whole village is sitting around listening to him speak. We can see the excitement on everyone’s faces. The statue next to Swami starts speaking and gesturing. Swami responds to him and gives everyone a few words of wisdom. And then he does something unpredictable. He stands up. He actually stands up! I was awestruck by the ingenious engineering that had gone behind all this. The scenes look so natural. You look to the left and see two women speaking in the village. You look to the right and see that a lady is closely watching the proceedings from behind a pillar. And then you feel that you are actually sitting in that village. After this, we enter a huge theatre. This place is filled with people – probably waiting for the hall to fill up. We happened to be last group, luckily, so the movie started as soon as we were in. It is a 40 minute documentary on the life of Swaminarayan. The kid in the movie acting as the Swami was really cute and innocent and felt apt for the role. After this was the boat ride. The boat is shaped like a giant paddle boat – without paddles. :P There is a chain and track along which the boat moves. This one is a still exhibition of the rich heritage of India and how India has contributed to the world. With this ended the 2 hour exhibition at Akshardham.

Agrasen ki Baoli - Delhi

A small distance from the famous Jantar Mantar, the Ugrasen or Agrasen ki Baoli is a famous place for adventure seekers and typical history buffs. It is known that during the times of Mahabharata, Raja Agrasen ordered a 104 red stone fort to be built like this with step wells in it. These were the first varieties of step wells ever seen in the country. Apart from everything, there is mystery unfolding at each step inside this very old heritage site. It is said that the well which has dried up now once was filled with black water and mesmerized people in an eerie way that many visitors would jump into it. It is said that there is some mysterious sound that is hear as one enters this place which then gives way to only an echo of your own footsteps. All these stories make the place even more spooky and adventurous to visit. The place is now protected and maintained by the Archeological Survey of India.
grasenkiBaoli (The well of Agrasen) is truly a fine example of architecture. the step well temple structure will surely fill you wonder and amazement as soon as you visit this legendary tourist place in Delhi. While no one knows the origins of this step well structure, it is widely believed that is was constructed by the King Ugrasen during the Mahabharata Era. The well, which is amongst the few of its kind in Delhi consists of 103 steps, few of which are immersed in water. The top 3 levels of the well are visible and each of them is lined with arched niches on either sides. It is also said that the water in the well attracted its visitors to commit suicide by sinking in it. Though the water has been dried out due to misshapenings .

By day, it's a tourist destination but no one has the guts to go there during night. It is often called 'Baoli of the unseen' because it is said to be filled with black water once. Rumor has it that it attracted the depressed hearts towards itself and hypnotized them to jump into the water. Every time when it absorbed someone, the water level raised.

This is a perfect place to sit and reflect in silence. An old pillaged step-well in New Delhi's business belly! The place is a perfect amalgamation of history in the center surrounded by the tall buildings of Connaught Place. On the steps of Baoli, you can almost feel the past in this 14th Century monument and the present in those business buildings of today.

The President’s house is the official residence of the President of India. It was in 1803, that the Lake East India Company defeated the Mughals and went to transfer kingship upon them. This is when the English appointed the first resident of what was then the capital of Mughals. After this, two important officials, Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker went on to form a dream city around the Raisina Hills. This later went on to be named as New Delhi. This was a more planned and developed city and one of the most important buildings in this place is the Rashtrapati Bhavan. There are blocks and chambers inside this huge building that is stretched from one end to the other. During the evening, this building is lit up in festive light and it is a magical treat to the eyes.

Connaught Place - Delhi

At the time of it being named, this circular market was the largest. The British were the ones to set this place up and they thought that the horse shoe shaped area would prove to be lucky for both sellers and buyers. The whole Connaught area is divided into two parts. The inner and most important part is where most of the shops are located and the blocks A to F are also a part of this. Most of the high end and foreign brands have at least one outlet in this area. Apt from just brands, local shops, designers, tailors, boutiques, restaurants and cafes also form an important part of this area.
Numerous shops , several eateries, Connaught Place is a must for all those who want to shop in Delhi.

Mirza Ghalibs Haveli - Delhi

Mirza Ghalib was a very famous classical Urdu and Persian poet of India. The Mirza Ghalib’s Haveli that we can see now is where he had spent the better part of his life. He had named this haveli, “Hakimo ki Haveli”. It was almost in ruins a decade back and started being used as shops but, the Delhi government restored a part of it in 1999 and made a memorial here. This was inaugurated in the year 2000. The charm of the Chandni Chowk lanes increases with such an important place in here. The museum mostly houses selected pieces of poetries by Ghalib himself. Here you will also find letters penned down by the legend himself, his photographs, etc. The most important photograph is the last one that was clicked just a few days before his death. Another part of the haveli has been restored with great care to give it back its original grandeur.
While staying at this Haveli, he wrote his Urdu and Persian ‘diwans’. Many a year after Ghalib's death the place housed shops inside it until the year of 1999 after which the govt. acquired a portion of it and renovated it bringing back its old world Mughal magnificence & splendour. It was given a special touch with the use of Mughal Lakhori bricks, sandstone & a wooden entrance gate to obtain that feeling of the 19th century period

Old Delhi, with its narrow alleyways and Mughal architecture, belongs to a different era and Ghalib ki Haveli is hidden in one of the many by lanes of Ballimaran area. The two room house is all that remains of one of the finest Urdu poets to have ever lived. The quixotic couplets that hang on the sidewall are a testament to his prowess. "Peene de sharab masjid me baith ke Galib Ya woh jaga bata jaha KHUDA nahi hai!!" English Translation Allow me to drink alcohol in the mosque If you cannot then tell me a place where there is no God The writings showcases Ghalib's unique gift to translate his deepest thoughts, highest cravings and darkest emotions into witty couplets on a piece of parchment. The other room had an entire wall covered with a regal painting of Ghalib smoking hookah. The pink and red chandeliers, the old parchment - torn and crumbled - with distinctly written Urdu words looked magical behind the glass frame.

Majnu Ka Tilla - Delhi

This is a place where there is a very old Tibetian Settlement and it is overall a nice place to be at. It is like a mini- Tibet inside New Delhi. They do not have many shopping options but it is really nice to know more about the culture and lifestyle of the people. There are however a number of good restaurants around the place.
Came across this place as we had to take bus to Dharamshala. Majnu ka Tilla is also known as Tibetian colony of Delhi. You will find the whole area filled with Tibetian’s and numerous stalls specialized for Tibetan cuisine, Tibetan handicrafts etc. by these Tibetian’s. Their houses have a slight touch of Tibet decorated by prayer flags all-round the terraces, balconies and windows. This place is bit shabby and unhygienic. I spent around 2hours waiting for bus to start. And finally started for Dharamshala at 1930 hours from here.

Delhi gave shelter to quite a lot Tibetans who managed to flee from the prosecutions, providing them with free area to dwell on the city's outskirts. Getting to the little Tibet is quite long, but it’s definitely worth it! As it’s probably the only place where you can eat beef :) Get a plate of yummy momos, a bowl of avocado soup and tea with salty yak milk and avocado cream soup. Enjoy colorful flags rustling on wind and check out a few traditional Buddhist temples.

Tughlaqabad Fort - Delhi

Presently the Mehrauli- Badarpur Road, it is a ruined fort that was once a dream of Emperor Ghiyas-ud-din- Tughlaq. He was the founder of the Tughlaq Dynasty and is known to have been a dictator by nature. It was his dream to set up a magnificent fort for himself but fate had something else in store. The fort was made for sure but the emperor could not enjoy his stay there. An old story says that when the fort was being made, the emperor had ordered all masons and workers to work only on this project and nowhere else. This forceful attitude was not liked by Nizamuddin Auliya, a Sufi saint of that time. He cursed the emperor that either the fort will remain unbuilt or will be inhabited by Gujjars. This is absolutely what happened as the Gujjars later took ownership of the fort and started living in that area. Another curse that is said to be the reason of death of the Emperor was when the saint said “Dilli Bohut Door”. At this time Tughlaq was elsewhere and while returning, his son conspired a murder of his father. The mausoleum of the Emperor is also built here now.
2. Tughlaqabad Fort: This 6 km fort in Delhi is of much historic significance. Known for its architecture, the stone and rubble walls that are 10-15 metres high represent the typical monuments of the Tughlaq dynasty. The fort was complete with palaces, mosques and more structures. Although most of it lies in ruins with overgrown vegetation, one can admire its beauty divided into three parts: a wide city area, a citadel and royal residences with underground tower passages. Thirteen out of fifty two gates still remain today. Built by Ghazi Malik in 1321, on assuming the title of Ghias-ud-din Tughlaq, it was the beginning of the Tughlaq dynasty. At least half a day picnic here sounds like a good idea. The water reservoir at its Southern part was a vast one and remains connected to the fort even today.

There are a number of colorful plants and herbs inside the garden which give out a wonderful fragrance attracting all those who are inside the park. One of the gardens known as the Khans Bagh which is inspired from the Mughal lines of gardens.

There are a number of halls amongst which the initial one is where you will find films and robotic shows going to spread the message of honesty, peace and unity.

Rashtrapati Bhawan - Delhi

The President’s house is the official residence of the President of India. It was in 1803, that the Lake East India Company defeated the Mughals and went to transfer kingship upon them. This is when the English appointed the first resident of what was then the capital of Mughals. After this, two important officials, Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker went on to form a dream city around the Raisina Hills. This later went on to be named as New Delhi. This was a more planned and developed city and one of the most important buildings in this place is the Rashtrapati Bhavan. There are blocks and chambers inside this huge building that is stretched from one end to the other. During the evening, this building is lit up in festive light and it is a magical treat to the eyes.
The stunning presidential estate. Near Rashtrapati Bhavan are the North and South Blocks of the Secretariat, and a Council Chamber which houses India's Parliament.

It’s a huge territory with not much (if any) people around close to the city center. Finally, you can get a free breath and hardly any attention to your humble persona. Check out Mr. President Residence with a fancy cut garden and guards marching around. Don’t forget to get a must-have pic with the guard.

Jantar Mantar - Delhi

Jantar Mantar is a renowned name and an attraction is Jaipur which is famous around the globe. It is adjacent to the other highlight of the city, City Palace. Maharaja Jai Singh started this observatory in the year 1728. The structure of Jantar Matar looks more like a bizzare of sculptures. Yanta Mantr a Sanskrit word is behind the name of the monument which in English means an instrument used for calculation. The place has another added point to its credit in the form of UNESCO World Heritage Site tag. Scholars were sent to foreign countries by the Maharaja before he planned to construct this observatory.
I started with Jantar Mantar. Though I knew it was in Delhi, I did not know it’s importance. Jantar Mantar [I love this name! Somehow it sounds damn cool to me], is an observatory constructed in order to predict the times of movements of moon and planets. There are 13 instruments here and all of them look absolutely gorgeous with the crimson red color.

Situated in the heart of the city, Jantar Mantar is a very small monumental space. At present it has become more a site of protests and Dharnas but nonetheless tourists visit in huge numbers for it is easily accessible and is very short and less time consuming. The dials don't work any longer but still the ruins have been preserved.

ISBT Kasmiri Gate - Delhi

The gate was built by military engineer Robert Smith in 1835. It was the Northern Gate that leads way to the walled city of Delhi. The name of the gate was given so because the way from the gate led to Kashmir. This is still one of the prime attractions of the city mainly because it is the gateway to many an important attraction such as the Red Fort, St. James’ Church and others. This is also a symbol that brightens up the history of the capital city, earlier known as Shahjahanabad. When the British Raj started, the rulers found the walls of the city in a state of ruins. It was decided then that the repair work will be started soon and what resulted was the Kashmiri or Kashmere Gate. The ISBT stands for the Inter State Bus Terminal. It is also known as the Maharana Pratap Bus Terminal and it forms one of the most important communication links in the city.
I took a bus to Chandigarh from ISBT New Delhi, as earlier i planned to go to dharamshal but because all of the buses were overcrowded changed my plan and took abus to Manali from Chandigarh.

Brown Bread Bakery Varanasi - Delhi

The Bakery was started in the year 2006 as the first organic bakery in Varanasi. This was started keeping in mind the campaign of “Learn for Life- Another World is Possible”. In the year 2011, the Organic Bakery Restaurant and the German Bakery were started jointly for public service. The team here tries to use almost 100% farm fresh ingredients in all their bread and food products. The vegetables, fruits and grains are supplied by local farmers who have been certified by the authority. The jams and muesli are made by the women empowerment team on their own. The cheeses are all brought down from Himachal Pradesh, South India, Nepal and Sikkim. They also have an awesome bakery shop where all the ace quality products are offered to the customers.
For the tired Western traveler, there is nothing better than a breakfast comprising of baked goods straight out of the oven. And the Brown Bread Bakery really delivers on that front. Do stop for a bite.

Jahaz Mahal - Delhi

Located at the end of the famous Mehrauli Area of New Delhi and just beside the Hauz-i-Khas is the Jahaz Mahal. the beautiful palace was named so as the reflection of it resembled the structure of a ship when seen in the reservoir opposite it. It is known to have been built during the Lodi rule around 1451- 1526 AD. The purpose of this architectural beauty is still unclear but according to sources it was either an inn for travelers from Middle and Far East or a leisure destination for the Mughal Rulers. Among the most remarkable features are the cenotaphs, tile work and blue tiling details on the walls of the palace. A part of the palace is now in ruins given repeated attacks and trials of encroachment. Whatever remains also makes nothing less than a perfect example of Islamic art and minute detailing. The intricate designs on the walls can leave any tourist in awe. The palace is surrounded by a very nice garden with lush green grass.
This was built by Lodi dynasty, the mahal was built almost 200 years after the reservoir but completely gels in with the surroundings. Constructed to serve as an inn (sarai) for travelers and pilgrims. Jahaz Mahal is the venue of the annual colorful festival of the Phool Walon Ki Sair (means a procession of the florists) or Sair-i-Gulfaroshan held in October every year. It is a potential place for photography and history enthusiasts.

Rose Cafe - Delhi

You can almost give this awesome café a miss given its tucked in location. This is a must visit on your way to or back from the Garden of 5 Senses. The ambience of this café cum restaurant is very cozy and comfortable. The staff and owners are warm and extremely friendly. The look of the place is absolutely like an Italian village café and the outdoor dining is more eye- catching. They have a restricted menu but the dishes are well chosen. The quantity of food served is standard and the taste is to vouch for. The special mention should be of the pizza and the cold beverages. You also get Lebanese food out here.
Rose Cafe, Saket! After Chattarpur’s lesser-known cafe, French affair closed down, it was hard to find something as homely and for the lack of better term, enchantingly Victorian. Everything about this place is quite rosy; a cafe with a countryside decor away from the hustle-bustle of the mall rats and big multiplexes is precisely designed to complement the surrounding hues of nature’s beauty.

Qila Rai Pithora - Delhi

Qila Rai Pithora also known as Rai Pithora's Fort was a fort city integrated 12th-century by Chauhan king, Prithviraj Chauhan. Chauhan Rajputs had bought out the city of Delhi, from Tomar Rajputs. It also incorporated, much older Lal Kila built earlier by 8th-century Tomar Rajput ruler, Anang Pal I. It had been from the fort that the Tomar, Chauhan and the Slave Dynasty ruled over Delhi from 12th to 13th century. Remains of the fort walls are scattered across South Delhi, visible in present Saket, Mehrauli around Qutb complex, Kishangarh and Vasant Kunj areas.
7. Qila Rai Pithora: This fort is visible from South Delhi, especially Saket and Mehrauli. Remains of this fort from the 12th century lie in scatters across the region around Qutub complex. Better known as Lal Kot by some, this fort was the first red stone fort built in Delhi. Hence, the name! A major part of this fort has been left in ruins. But, it still reflects the glorious past. It has seven gates worth being photographed. A flight of earthen and stone steps leads upwards where one can get a complete view of the Qila. Its gateway and round bastion is of much significance.

Zafar Mahal - Delhi

This is the last building built by the Mughals. It was started by Emperor Akhbar Shah II and was finished by the last Mughal emperor, Bahadur Shah Zafar, who also gave it the present name of Zafar Mahal. The building was in the memory of the sufi saint Bhaktiyar Kaki, a descendent of the famous Saint Moinuddin Chisti. Apart from the Zafar Mahal, a number of other monuments were built in the honor of Khwaja Bhaktiyar kaki. This building was earlier known as Rang Mahal and was a single storey structure. The Hathi Gate, Moti Masjid and Chhattri were later added to renovate and beautify the structure and give it some height. The famous festival or the annual procession known as Phulon ki Sair also starts from here and is a festival that had long ago been started by the Khawja himself as a protest of the British festivals. The naubat Khana and graves of the royal family are also put up in a beautiful manner here.
Zaffar Mahal is a palace that was built by Akbar Shah II in 18th century. Then it was called Lal Mahal or Rang Mahal. Later, Bahadur Shah Zafar II renovated it and it was renamed to Zaffar Mahal. This place is great for photography and hanging out. But beware of the collapsible roofs. The structure is one of the last to be built by Mughals, yet is the first one to collapse!

Lado Sarai - Delhi

Lado Sarai is a region in South Delhi, near by Saket metro station.
Sandwiched in the layers of the first cities of Delhi (Lalkot and Mehrauli), the urban village of Lado Sarai offers easy access to built heritage from down the centuries. In recent years (post the sealing drive by the city authorities), it has also become an art hub, with art galleries mushrooming on the main street, along with furniture and carpet stores, and other creative practices. Our Lado Sarai walk starts with a terrace top brunch at the captain’s house, known infamously as Genda Mahal, the house of marigolds (some panoramic views promised). On the walk we discover tombs, some renovated, some crumbling, some encroached. Walk through the lanes of the village – old havelis, wells, the last few pastoral remains (cow sheds & more…), bustling markets… End the walk browsing art and design in the village, and a treat at the locally revered pizzeria cum cheese shop.

Olive Bar & Kitchen - Delhi

The taste of the whole world under the same roof is served here. This restaurant is a favorite of many people given the delicious continental food and extremely good service. The ambience is very comfortable and classy. It is a perfect destination for romantic dinner or lunch outings. They also have an outdoor dining option which pleases customers especially during the winter days. The fish platters and Italian based dishes are extremely well served. The presentation of the food is worth mentioning. The location of the restaurant is very convenient in the Mehrauli area just near the Qutub Minar.
Lunch at Olive Bar and Kitchen Now I really wanted some relaxing retreat and for that I prefer no other place but the Olive Bar and Kitchen near the Qutub minar complex. For me this is the only place in Delhi which means the ultimate relaxation with some amazing Italian food. Although this place is expensive like a lunch for two can cost around rs.3000 but the experience they deliver you here is totally worth it. The ultimate white Italian décor , the soft music, the tranquility of the open area and the waiters in flower print shirts sometimes make me feel that I am on a Caribbean island. This place is not just about amazing food but it represents food culture , people don’t come here to just have a lunch instead they have lunch here to just enjoy this place. As me and my friend wanted to have some lazy chats now so we ordered a Mezze platter along with refreshing Mojitos . The Mezze platter, when it was served I was just oggling at it I mean it was so much, 8 types of dips, with different types of breads, 4 types of salads and some other cutlets and grilled mushrooms. It gave us full 1 hour of enjoyment of taste and conversation. As the platter was huge so without having some main course we ordered the estatic red valvet cake and it was pure heaven .

The book lovers’ paradise, Spell and Bound is a new age book store, library cum café with an old world charm. The place is small but the interior is designed very tactfully. As soon as you enter the store, you get the typical smell of new pages combined with the aroma of steaming coffee. The basement is the reading area only whereas the level above this is where you get some lip smacking snacks to be enjoyed with your favorite book in the other hand. The store has almost all writers around the world and books on almost all subjects. Be it new age contemporary writers, fictions, novels or old history books, you name it and they try to serve it. The sparkling wooden flooring and old designed spiral stairs add a little more charm to the place.
They have a big collection of books of different genres. It's a nice place for reading books and have a refreshing cup of coffee.

Bikers Cafe - Delhi

In the heart of the buzzing Vasant Kunj area in New Delhi is a hub mainly for youngsters and bike lovers. The ambience is cozy and comfortable and food is good and very pocket friendly too. The service is definitely not a ten on ten but the other pluses overpowers it. The décor is punk and very modern keeping in mind the young crowd out here. it is overall a good place for breakfast, brunch or an evening snack after shopping.
Tucked away in a corner of the Vasant Kunj B Block market is the neat little bistro named Biker's Cafe. I discovered it quite by accident while searching for a place to grab an early morning bite with a friend. For all the helmets and bike components on display at the wall, the cafe is largely silent and empty. It is near perfect for a healthy meal and banter. The Bobby Brown Breakfast (cheese and mushroom omelette, bowl of fries, toasted brown bread, grilled tomato and peanut butter) did my spirits a world of good.

Satpula Dam - Delhi

Satpula or the Seven Arches Dam is otherwise unnoticed by all passersby and tourists till you inquire about a nearby water body here. The beautiful area is often mistaken as a bridge or simply a lake. The main thing that pleases everyone here is the surrounding greenery due to the bushes around. The place is perfect for some quite time away from the bustling city. The view from the top is wonderful and you will have to jump above the small gates to reach the actual area. The Seven arches bridge was built by Emperor Muhammad-bin- Tughlaq and the arches are still clearly visible. The walls and structures of the dam and gates are much in ruins due to time and natural forces but it still manages to portray a clear picture of calmness, serenity and tranquility.
This was a dam built around 1343 to aid irrigation facilities and provide a defense from enemy armies. Even after six centuries of wear and tear, there is no major damage in the structure. Apart from being a dam, this was also used for defense from enemies. You can notice tall towers on both banks which give you a feel of being watched. If you get down to the plain ground in front of the structure, you can see the seven openings that once functioned as the gates of the dam to let water out. This is a great hangout place and if you take a few friends along, you'll have an awesome time together !!

Khirki Masjid - Delhi

This is an offbeat mosque that stands out from all its counterparts of that era. The mosque was built by the Prime Minister of Ferozeshah Tughlaq named, Khan-i-Jahan Junaan Telangani. The mosque that is now a symbol of loneliness and ignorance is a fine blend of Hindu and Islamic architecture. Unlike other mosques that have a single courtyard, this is divided into four small courtyards, each having a design different from the other. The lattice and calligraphy work is admirable and the sight of children using the green area for playing is a blissful sight. The building is almost in crumbles at present. The main reasons are lack of restoration and the scarcity of sunlight penetrating inside.
The architecture of this place is beautiful and it is a great place for photo-shoots as well. The structure is vast and has an array of hundreds of pillars orderly aligned is a treat to watch. Even in the summer heat we found to be windy and calm. it just soothes one's senses. It is a brilliant place to spend time and be at peace. The view around is so contrasting. Here stands on a 14th century structure, looking at the biggest mall of Delhi right in front of you!! It's so ironic, and yet it's legacy never ceases to amaze!

Mahipalpur - Delhi

Mahipalpur is a part od South West Delhi. Its one of the historical part of Delhi was established by 18th ruler of Delhi, Raja Mahipal Tomar. Its nearby IGI Airport and Chhatarpur Metro station is nearest metro station.
Day0 - Hello All! (24th June, Mahipalpur-Delhi) It was the day when all riders had assembled at the Modesty Palace Hotel, Mahipalpur for the briefing session. The introductory session started with Manu introducing the core members & informing all the riders about the key points for a safe ride, way of riding, dos & don’ts etc. One of the important rules of the ride was, that no one being allowed to ride under the influence of alcohol/drugs & it was clear from Day 0, to which everyone adhered with. It was an august gathering of all riders from various spheres of life & having one common thread binding everyone- Riding their RE machines to Ladakh! It was amazing to see the passion of the riders who had come down from various parts of the country including Chandigarh, Faridkot, Panipat, Gwalior, Varanasi, Mumbai, Nagpur, Baroda, Ranchi, Hyderabad & Vizag. There were a few who had bought their bike just to join this ride & some even had come on a ride for the very first time. I was not the only one there, some like me, had quit their current job to accomplish this dream ride. Hope they too had a backup option. I had met some of the riders Maneesh, Tarun, Anuj earlier during a warm-up/breakfast ride to Murthal & went on to be close buddies forming our ‘foursome’ group and having awesome time together. It was amazing to see the enthusiasm among the riders, be it the youngest rider of 23 years old or Shivaraju, who is just 50 years ‘young’. In fact he was one of the most active riders of the lot who is a trained para glider & avid trekker. The group had a good mix of professionals working in public & private sectors, govt employees, bank employees, engineers, defence personnel, railways employee, chefs, entrepreneurs etc. who were ready to shed the comfort of their respective air conditioned offices & face the gruelling conditions en route. Also, this ride was going to be a test of our patience, perseverance, ability to adapt & accept situations. It was Day0 & extraordinary events were expected to occur. Pardeep stuck his feet in his new RE boots & was helplessly reaching out to every rider as he was unable to off his shoes. Finally I & ‘Pahalwaan’ Varun had to put in all our strength to pull them out to bring him relief. Another rider Rahul who woke up that evening to discover that his bike was not functioning well & ‘missing’ beats was seen tensed as he was trying sort out the problem. He was directed to Kaytee workshop where the accompanying mechanic Rajinder managed to resolve the issue. ‘Missing’ Rahul appeared to be less than happy entire the ride as his bike was demanding some or other maintenance almost every day. To avoid such hassles fortunately RB had organised free check-up camps which most of us had availed to ensure that we have a trouble-free ride. Unfortunately riders who had missed attending the ride were the once who majorly faced issues. It was a basic duty of the rider to ensure that their machines are ride-fit & those who missed a thorough check-up, did it at their own peril. After the formal introductory round & exchanging pleasantries, riders had their dinner & were ready for the D-day when they kick-start the ride to Paradise. Four of us- Manu ‘sardaar’, Varun ‘pahalwaan’ Nishant ‘orange cap’ & myself went to KT to get the flex banners fixed on the back-up truck which was carrying the spares, our luggage, mechanic & lot more. It took some time to get that fixed after which we rushed back to be on our beds by 11.30pm as the wake-up call was at 4.30am & I did not want to be left back on first day itself.

Shahpur Jat Village - Delhi

Also termed as the Royal Town of the Jats, this place was built by Alauddin Khilji in the year 1303. After a few years later, Dagar farmers from Haryana started settling down over here and soon became established due to their expertise in farming. This is still like a hidden secret of Delhi. The place is just near the famous Siri Fort and the Hauz Khas Reservoir. Both of these historic structures are now in ruins along with the typical havelis of this narrow lane. The place is now taken up as the fashion nook of the bustling city. This place is filled with fashion boutiques selling everything from designer clothes to other trendy garments and accessories. There are also a few cafes with a cool ambience including those under shady trees and outdoor dining facilities.
Located amidst the ruins of Siri, the second city of Delhi (14th century), Shahpur Jat village is on its way to becoming the next Hauz Khas village, and is already now referred to as ‘the other village’. A familiar trope greets us – amidst ruins from bygone eras, creativity and enterprise is thriving. Low rents, easy availability of artisans and skilled labour, and friendly locals have made this a hub for design practitioners, publishers, NGOs, and now even restaurants. Along with these, our walk will also explore the Ruins of Siri Fort and Tohfe Wala Gumbad in Baradari along with some famous design stores.

Hauz Khas Social - Delhi

This restaurant in the village of the famous Hauz Khas has become popular since the time Delhi faced a sharp water crisis. When the tourist footfall started decreasing, the restaurant started pulling people back. As you reach the alley, it will be difficult for you to believe that such an awesome restaurant can be placed in a dingy lane. The lane has graffiti filled walls on both the sides and then you enter the beautiful two storey restaurant with an equally fantastic décor. The two things remarkable are the customer service on weekdays and the presentation of the food. The cutlery and utensils are incredibly stylish and the food is lip smacking too. They have a selected menu of drinks and food but all are tried and tested. Apart from just eating, you can also organize a formal meeting here with two laptops on a table along with the food. Yes! The space is just so cool. As the evening starts turning into a dark night, the party goers find their way in.
