    Amidst hustle bustle of the Capital..this place gives one the desired solitude and strength to face another day! Guru Vani is soul calming and the kada prasad is delicious as ever! There is langar all day. There is a Sikh history museum in the Gurudwara premises. One can donate ration for langar and sit by the sarovar to feel the divine vibes! There is a clinic for all who need medical help. Wahe Guruji da Khalsa..Wahe Guruji di fateh..

    Visited this place on 27 Mar 22. Somehow due to Covid restriction the authority has closed the main gate hence cannot visit inside. Just clicked one or two pics from outside and moved.

    Hope they do open the things so that tourist can enter inside,

    Red fort is the most important architecture in India. The area has two different parking lot. One can park the car at Jama Masjid parking and walk towards ticket counter or else there is parking space near to Red Fort ticket counter as well.

    Vehicle entry is restricted ahead of parking place which is exactly at opposite site of main entrance of Red Fort hence one need to keep walking all through the outer boundary till main entrance of Red Fort.

    The picturesque Red Fort can be clicked from outside itself which dont need any sort of ticket. Once you enter inside the passage passes through Chatta Bazaar where you can shop for things (only cash was accepted).

    Inside the main campus there are many architectural building where you can click some more pics and come out again through Chatta Bazaar. Keep your ticket safe as the authority do check it again at exit.

    We packed a lot in to our first day in Delhi, probably too much but it would have felt wrong to have not come here. Was a short time of tranquility in and felt appropriate to feel the ground with my feet within the memorial area.

    Located near Connaught Place, it is a step well used to store water in those days. It is basically flocked by couples and young people. Many movie sequences have been shot here. Not recommended for people who have a problem with climbing steep steps. There is no entry fee and photography is permitted.

    This park is super rich with history, best if you go with a knowledgeable guide who can add context. I would advise to go in a group of 3-4 people if you're not a Delhi local. Women should not go here alone, especially near sunset or sunrise, as some unsavoury people may roam around nearby. Do dress conservative.

    Entry is free. One of the park exits leads to a road that reads to the Bhool Bhulaiya (not really a maze, just a big multi arched rounded tomb type structure worth visiting). You can find it on Google Maps, it's a few minutes away on foot.

    The ASI or some trust badly needs to conduct maintenance here.

    Raj path is the 3km stretch wide road between Rashtrapati Bhavan to Vijay Choke to India Gate. you are not allowed to travel by Car whole distance so better to visit by walk. Best time to visit is in the evening. Start your walk from Rashtrapati Bhavan and end your walk at India Gate and ensure that you will be there at India gate during Sunset as Sunset at India Gate is one of the memorable scenery.
    After visiting Sunset comeback and enjoy the beautiful scenery in LED light glow besides Raj path. Specially Parliament Bhavan, South Block, North Block, Mughal Gardens, Rashtrapati Bhavan will be very nice to see in the Lighting.
    You can also enjoy snacks in this Raj Path road as there are many vendors available in the evening. If you are going in the Morning or Afternoon you will not enjoy your visit. so plan to visit this place by evening.
    This is the place where Republic day celebrations happened on 26th January of Every Year.

    The Museum and Planetarium are two separate entities.But recommend to first visit the Planetarium, because it is generally crowded and show timimg for Hindi & English is also different. Addition to this the ticket counter for space show only opens sometimes before the show starts. If you don’t want to enjoy the show, which is normally for 30 minutes, then you can enter free.The entry ticket for the sky show is Rs.50/- for child and Rs.80/- for adult.
    After enjoying the show you have to walk on the directions given to the Teen Murti Bhawan which is entry free. There you see different rooms used by Nehru,his jacket, numerous letters and other exhibits.The museum also has a souvenir shop. The entry gate of both Nehru Planetarium & Teen Murti Bhavan is separate so that you can enter on any side and exit on any side with a connecting road in between.

    The stepwells of Delhi have been made famous by the Bollywood movies shot there, the most famous of which was Rang de Basanti. Hidden within the Mehrauli Archaeological Park is this gem of a stepwell that is absolutely free from crowds. One can get really cool pictures here without any photobombers. The beautiful arches on the main level are a superb backdrop for pictures with a great play of light and shadows.

    The ASI is doing a superb restoration work and apart from the stagnant water, one can really enjoy the architectural beauty of the place. While going into the lower levels reaching to the water seem inadvisable due to the narrow steps in the dark littered with garbage, one must climb to the upper levels for the ornamented tombs and prayer areas. The view from the upper level shows the old and new juxtaposed in Delhi.

    Nice place for a visit alone or with family for a picnic. Government run place so not as great as could have been.

    Currently fenced and locked up (no access for visitors), however, worth a glance due its historical significance, built is the mid 1600’s it was one of many gates to protect the region , it got its name from the road that went through the gate that leads to the city of the same name. Probably not a stand alone attraction, however, worth a cruise by.

    Diwan I Aam as the name suggested is the meeting place of Mughal Emperor with the common people to sort out their grievances. It is a hall, open in three sides and backed by set of rooms. The chair of Emperor or the Singhasana is still there in a glass room. There are some grass fields also there on which you can sit.
