Top 5 Things to do in New Delhi, India

July 27, 2017 Margarita Chappel

New Delhi is all at once chaotic and calm, a complicated city where cows often wander the shanty-lined streets. The 17th century Red Fort is a mass of domes and turrets, while Chandni Chowk is an exercise in friendly haggling. Jantar Mantar features larger-than-life sundials and astronomical instruments that are still used to predict the weather. Travelers and locals flock to the India Gate, the national monument of India that honors the soldiers who died in World War I and the Third Afghan War.

Swaminarayan Akshardham

Fantastic site to visit - unimaginable architechture, great theme show, diaorama and I max presentation. If any tourist, irresepctive of his religion or creed, has half a day to spare, this is a must see. It is one man's creation in five years totally with voluntary support. A monument which makes every indian proud!

Akshardham is one of famous temple or place to visit in leisure time.The architecture, Layout and the entire area is magnanimous and stunning. The amount of detail and effort that has been dedicated by the artists is just out of this world. The temple is an example of excellence and perfection. Once you enter the temple you can easily spend at least 5 hours to explore the temple and its beauty. Please ensure cameras, hand baggage and even cell phones are not allowed in the premises. However, the cloakroom service is available for all your belongings. The food court is neat and have a lot to offer. There are multiple stores where you can buy souvenirs and books. The boat ride and the show is really amazing. Parking, toilet facilities are free but one has to pay for the musical Fountain and other activities. The environment around and in the temple is so calm and relaxing

Gurudwara Bangla Sahib

Reviewed By grace_from_mn - Saint Paul, Minnesota

The site is absolutely gorgeous, between the white marble and the pool where the worshippers were healed, and it's truly inspiring to see so many people of faith here. This temple is unique because it has a 24-hour kitchen that feeds the poor of any faith, and my tour guide brought me back into the kitchens to see them cooking the food - something like 10,000 meals a day. If you visit, I recommend bringing extra cash to make a donation to support the important work they do here. A truly inspiring site - one of my favorite experiences in Delhi.

The Delhi airport express line is a very fast and cheap way to get to Delhi's airport.
The time from the station to the airport is around 30 minutes compared to travel by car with the traffic of the city that can take around 1-2 hours to arrive.
The price is $60INR and the train is very clean it departs from 6 am to 9 pm.
If you want to go to the domestic terminal you have to get down in aweocitu station and take a bus which price is $15 INR and takes 20 minutes to domestic terminal. If you want to go to the international terminal just get down at the end of the line in terminal 3.
A very fast and reliable transport.

Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib

Reviewed By Michalja2013 - Warsaw, Poland

The shrines and temples on Chandni Chowk are reflecting the attitude of sovereigns of Delhi to different religions. The jain temple (Digambara) and sikh Sis Ganj Sahib Gurudwara are opening the alley from the Red Fort. Near the temple is information center where you can get everything which is necessary for visit and materials about sikh religion. Go inside, listen to the music, experience the mood and finally get some cake when you leave.
