Humayun's Tomb

Probably not the iconic image of Delhi but unarguably the most splendid work of Mughal Architecture in the capital, Humayun's Tomb is UNESCO recognised World Heritage Site and definitely tops the list of must visit places. The structure will give you a glimpse of the iconic Taj as it was here that the Persian Charbagh style was put to test by The Mughal architects and was later perfected in the construction of Taj Mahal in Agra.

Dilli Haat

Dilli Haat is an open air food cum craft bazaar located in Delhi near INA (AIIMS), run by the Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation. There are over 62 craft shops inside the plaza where artisans from every corner of this vast country gather to sell and showcase their handicraft. Then there are food stalls offering savoury cuisines from every possible state for the platter of guests.

Red Fort

Once the pivot of the might Mughal Empire, Red Fort, or the Lal Quila, is a stark reminder of ephemeral nature of empires and powers that be. Once a sprawling fortress complex with an array of palaces, and grand structures, lush courtyards and cascading waterholes; Red fort today is only a shadow of its majestic past. The significance of this structure is evident in the fact that it was here that the flag of India was hoisted when she got independence from British Raj, a tradition which is still observed on each anniversary of Indian Independence Day.

Akshardham Temple

One of the modern marvels of architecture, this sprawling temple complex by the bank of river Yamuna, is a sight to behold. The architecture and design of this temple complex is a manifestation of the time tested ancient traditions of Hindu culture, beliefs and spirituality which has percolated down the ages. The popularity of this temple is evident in the fact that 7 out of 10 people who visit Delhi, pay their visit to Swaminarayan Akshardham Temple.

India Gate

India Gate is arguably the most iconic and enduring symbol of New Delhi. It was built to commemorate the Indian and British soldiers who lost their lives during the Second World War. Evening is perhaps the best time to visit this resplendent structure when it is floodlit while the fountains nearby make mesmerising display of varied hues.
