If you are thinking Delhi is just another boring place with just a brief glimpse of India, then you are wrong. I visited Delhi in March 2017 and it was amazing.
I am not a person who goes for Temples, but a person who looks for history and heritage. Delhi gives me more of this. Moreover, this place is famous for its food, I tried it, it’s unique and amazing.
One must have heard many bad things about Delhi, but these kinds of things happen in every city. I would suggest crimes in new places come invited and never happen and you should be careful whichever place it is. People in Delhi are of all kinds and you cannot call all of them arrogant, you might meet a few. I found more helpful people in Delhi than the arrogant people (but I did find it, doesn’t happen often in Mumbai).
Delhi is a place where all Indian’s should visit. India! I would rather recommend it to the World.
After visiting Agra we came to Delhi for a 2-day trip. One day dedicated for sightseeing, and the other for shopping.
On the first day, we covered the following sights;
- Qutub Minar and Iron Pillar
- India Gate
- Rashtrapati Bhavan
- Parliament of India
- Sarojini Market
- Lotus Temple
- Lal Quila (Red Fort), here we saw the light show at 7 pm.

On the second day, we visited Chandni Chowk and toured and shopped inside it the whole day. There are wholesale markets of every kind inside Chandni Chowk. We brought Punjabi Suits starting INR 250/- to 950/- where in Mumbai the same are priced at around INR 900/- to 2500/-, you see the difference here. Apart from this, there are options of chat everywhere, do have Pani puri, Dahi Puri and also visit the Haldiram’s outlet.
Recommended Places for Foodies:
- Karim’s (at Jama Masjid)
- Kake Da Dhaba (at Connaught Place)
