The city is nestled in the lap of majestic Yamuna River and presents the soul of India in its true self. Over thousands of years, it has wooed rulers, fascinated plunderers, and tried historians with details. Even today, Delhi preserves an enviable heritage; it’s a city always on the move. The city is sprinkled with captivating ancient monuments, picturesque gardens, magnificent museums, a vivacious performing arts scene and some of the sub-continent’s best restaurants. This city of contrasts is a treasure trove for tourists.

Day 2


This morning after breakfast, proceed for the full day sightseeing of Old and New Delhi.

Introduction to Delhi starts with a heritage walk to Old Delhi (Shahjahanabad) visiting Red Fort, Jama Mosque, Chandni Chowk and Raj Ghat. In the 17th century, the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, made his capital in Shahjahanabad, the area that broadly covers present-day Old Delhi, also called the walled city. Jama Mosque is the largest and most well-known mosque in India. It is flanked by Red fort on one side and old city Chandni Chowk on another side. Built by Shah Jahan in 17th century, Jama Masjid is one of the most crowded destinations in Delhi for pilgrims and tourists. It is a great place of Muslim pilgrimage. There are three entrances to the Courtyard- on the East, North and South. Since the mosque is laid on a hillock, the steps climbing up to this are steep. The eastern gate has 774 steps. Chandni Chowk is the oldest market places of Old Delhi. The origin of Chandni Chowk dates back to the Mughal era in Indian history. According to legends, Chandni Chowk market was established during the reign of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan and was designed by Jahanara-Emperor Shah Jahan's favorite daughter. Today this market is considered to be one of the busiest markets in the world.

Raj Ghat lies on the banks of the river Yamuna. It is the last resting place of Mahatma Gandhi, Father of the Nation. It also houses two museums dedicated to Gandhi. At the Gandhi Memorial Museum, you can catch a documentary on the life of this noble soul and the philosophy of the Sarvodaya Movement.

The British Empire established their capital in New Delhi with much fanfare in 1911. King Edward of Britain came to Delhi and designated the leading British Architect, Edward Lutyen’s, with the task of building the new capital in Delhi. Lutyen’s Delhi primarily consists of the administrative area of the capital, India Gate and the Viceroy’s House (which is now known as Rashtrapati Bhawan). A visit to Delhi is incomplete without going to Lutyen’s Delhi which one can say, is the place where the Central Government of India currently resides and works from.

Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is located near the main Connaught Place in Delhi. It has developed into a center of pilgrimage for thousands of people every day. People from various religions, castes and places visit this holy place.

Later, you will visit to Humayun’s Tomb and Qutab Minar.

Humayun’s Tomb, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the first substantial example of Mughal architecture in India. This magnificent garden tomb was built in 1565, nine years after the death of Humayun, the second Mughal Emperor, by his widow Bega Begam. Inside the walled enclosure are garden squares with walkways, water channels and a mausoleum with a double dome in the center. Humayun’s Tomb is often considered a precursor to the Taj Mahal owing to the stylistic similarity of its structures. Qutab Minar with a height of 234 feet is considered as the tallest individual tower in the world. It is one of the many masterpieces that depicted the sheer brilliance of the Mughal architects of those times. It was constructed under the rule of Sultan Qutub-ud-din Aibak in 1199. It is surrounded by other ancient monuments which are collectively called Qutub complex.
