Day 2

Exploring Paharganj

Paharganj, and particularly its primary thoroughfare Main Bazar, is a bustling backpacker enclave full of budget guest houses and tiny shops selling everything from hippie clothes to incense. There’s a mix of casual bakeries, no-nonsense eateries serving classic Indian dishes, and rooftop restaurants whose menus feature global fare like pasta and falafel. Nearby New Delhi station is a major railway hub.
