A traveler is always ready to explore new things and add a spice to his life and explorers don't plan their things they just pack their stuff and move out of their place to write another chapter of his book of memories. I am just like them,one beautiful morning i  packed my bags and moved out of my house and started traveling in the streets of Delhi. A Delhite knows all the attractions of his city but never gets enough time to explore them. That day i took off from my college and went out wandering . so i started with Gurudwara Bangla sahib continuing my journey i scheduled my journey and made my next visit to Agresen ki baoli , Purana qila , lota cafe , Humayun tomb ,Maharashtra sadan, and ended my day in the mesmerizing beauty of India gate . Every destination amazed me with its architecture and beauty.

The only aim of a traveler/explorer should have is to live in the moment and enjoy. Just keep exploring because the experience is worth it..

Situated in the heart of Connaught Place, the present Gurdwara was once a bunglow of Mirza Raja Jai Singh – hence giving its name Bangla Sahib. A sacred place with its deep-rooted history dating back to the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb, the Gurdwara is known to have saved the residents of Delhi from a severe epidemic. Even today, this impressive Gurdwara attracts devotees from afar to take a dip in the holy water here to heal them from suffering. This palce not only heal you from the sufferings but also provides a peaceful atmosphere.

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 .

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.

Humayun tomb garden has beautiful garden squares with pathways, water channels, and is also a resting ground for Mughal rulers. It was from here that the last Mughal Emperor Bahadur Shah Jafar was captured by the British in 1857. The monument is well maintained .

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.

Rising 42 mts high in one end of Rajpat stands the India Gate – a symbol of pride and bravery. 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.
