Places To Visit

The city of Delhi has a lot of places where you can see some of the most amazing things. The attractions of Delhi lies in its ability to carry with it the legacy of history as well as the trendiest things that you will get today in any modern metropolis. The city is not in anyway boring or gloomy. It is one of the most throbbing cities of the world and is full of life. Some of the places where you must go while on a tour of this historic city is mentioned here so that you may not have to repent for not seeing a spectacular thing.

Chandni Chowk

Although the place is too crowded and congested, this is the most happening marketplace in Delhi. There is nothing in the world that you cannot find here. Located opposite the Red Fort, Chandni Chowk is the place to be if you want to go on a shopping spree. Digamber Jain Temple is one of the main attractions of the area. There is also a Bird Hospital near Chandni Chowk. From Sunheri Masjid, Nadir Shah ordered his troops to plunder and massacre Delhi. Buy some fineries from Chandni Chowk because you will not get the things better anywhere else.

Old Delhi

Formerly known as Shahjahanabad, Old Delhi was the capital city of the great Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. Today, little remained of the old city that for hundreds of years served as the seat of power for emperors and kings. Today, however, all that you will find here is the remnants of the past glory. Kashmiri Gate, Ajmeri Gate, Turkman Gate and Delhi Gate are some of the samples of the then architecture that remains even to this day. The famous Ashokan Pillar can be seen near Feroz Shah Kotla.

The Raj Ghat

This is one place where people come to pay respect to all those freedom fighters and leaders who were cremated here. The Raj Ghat is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Delhi. To the north of Raj Ghat, tourist visit the cremation ground of the First Prime Minister of India, Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru. The place is called Shanti Van. You can also visit the cremation ground of former Prime Ministers of India.

Rajpath and India Gate

If you are in Delhi in the month of January, do not in any way miss the military extravaganza organized by the armed forces of India on the 26th of January every year. This is the official address of the President of India and you will be able to see the huge mansion popularly called the Rashtrapati Bhawan. At the end of this very important road is another extremely important landmark, the India Gate. This gate is a 42m high stone arch of triumph. The names of all the soldiers in the Indian Army who fought and died in the World War l, the North-West Frontier operations and the 1919 Afghan misadventure are inscribed in the stone. There is also a memorial that is dedicated to the unknown soldier.

Among other very important things that you must see are the Parliament House and the apex court of the country or the Supreme Court. Make no mistake about it that Delhi has more to offer than just these.
