Delhi is a city of all contrasts and best place to experience culture, history, architecture, cuisine, spirituality and enigmatic world. Here are the immoderations from Old Mughal era Delhi, where narrow lanes, overhead wires, wandering cows, hawker, spices and jewellers to the modern British built New Delhi with its imperial buildings and mansions.
This vivacious metropolitan city has a more population than many of European countries. In Delhi different Indian cultures cohabit, and its contradictions are clearly visible to the visitors. There is so much to experience and witness here, Delhi is like a country-in-itself.
Here’s my experiences of a typical day of sightseeing of Old and New Delhi and my recommendations:
Jama Masjid of Delhi, is one of the largest mosques in India.
Bustling streets of Chandni Chowk (full of activity)
India Gate, Delhi
Later visited magnificent Bangla Sahib Gurudwara (massive Sikh temple)
Humayun’s Tomb, Delhi
We end the tour at Qutab Minar – one of Delhi’s most iconic minarets.
