In fact, few tourists stay in New Delhi for a long time. This is a short stop on the way to more replicated India for most of them. Although the capital also has something to show and to surprise.


World-class restaurants and luxury hotels open here, cultural life flourishes in all its manifestations. In addition, there are many historical and modern places in New Delhi that can tell a lot about India and its inhabitants. So go ahead for the adventure!

Indira Gandhi International Airport, DEL

This airport was built after World War II and has long been used only by the military. But with the increase of tourists the city got the right to manage the airport. It has become much larger since then and has experienced a number of problems with the ever-increasing passenger flow. The airport has been managed by a private company since 2006 and has actually received a second, more successful, life.

Now Indira Gandhi International Airport serves about 70 million passengers a year. But the company management plans to increase this number to 100 million over the next 10 years. Nevertheless, now it is a modern, beautiful airport, which cares not only about passengers, but also about the environment.

How to get from the airpoty to the city center?

The fastest way to get to the center is by metro. The airport building is literally connected to the subway. You will need only 1.5 dollars per ticket and 20 minutes to drive to the very center of New Delhi without any fuss and traffic jams. It’s such an ideal way that it makes no sense to search for others. Although they certainly are.

If suddenly you couldn’t get on the metro, which runs from 5 am to 11 pm, take a ticket for a round-the-clock bus. The cost will depend on the destination and the amount of baggage.

Want to take a taxi? So it is also possible, especially since this service in India is relatively cheap. Use the public taxi department right at the airport. You need to name the destination and pay the cost. After payment you will receive a receipt with the number of the car, which will need to be given to the driver. On average, a trip will cost $ 7-10.

Weather

From May to June the temperature in New Delhi can easily reach 50 degrees. This is one of the hottest places on the planet, so in summer it is better not to go there. In winter the temperature tends to zero at night, and without central heating it may not be very comfortable. Only autumn and the beginning of spring remain for tourism.

New Delhi Sightseeings

In the capital of India, everything has been done on a grand scale. Here is the largest Hindu temple, the largest mosque in the country, the largest shopping center in South Asia, etc. And it’s also a giant bubbling anthill, which can be chaotic and frightening, but at the same time calm and friendly.

 

There are a huge number of parks, gardens, architectural monuments in New Delhi. It is the second richest city in India after Mumbai. Almost everyone here speaks English really good, and the number of nationalities and cultures makes it a completely modern logistics hub like New York.

Red Fort

The city’s most famous monument, the Red Fort, is not only a powerful reminder of the Mughal era of India, but also a symbol of the country's struggle for freedom. The fort was built by the fifth Mughal emperor Shah Jahan when he decided to move his capital from Agra in 1638. The turbulent history of the fort includes the capture of the Sikhs and the British. To bring tourists back to this ancient era, an evening sound and light show with an hour-long history of the fort is held here.

Delhi Cathedral Mosque

Jama Masjid is another wonderful treasure of the Old City and the largest mosque in India. Its yard can accommodate at the same time 25,000 believers. The construction of the mosque took 12 years and was completed in 1656. To climb to the top of its south tower, you will have to sweat a lot, but the result will reward you with an amazing view (even behind the interfering metal safety bars) on the roofs of Delhi. Be sure to dress modestly to visit the mosque, otherwise you simply will not be allowed. "More modest" means that you have to cover your head, legs and shoulders. If necessary, you can buy clothes on site.

Chandni Chowk

Chandni Chowk is the main street of old Delhi. After strolling through the orderly and tidy wide streets of New Delhi, a shocking contrast awaits here. Cars, bicycle rickshaws, handcarts, pedestrians and animals all compete here for space on the road. Chaos reigns here, devastation and clutter, but at the same time it fascinates as a completely unfamiliar world. It also houses one of the oldest and busiest markets in India. Its narrow, winding streets are littered with cheap jewelry, fabrics and electronics. For thrills in every sense of the thrill, Chandni Chowk is a great place to enjoy street food.

Akshardham

A relatively new attraction of the capital: this massive temple complex was built by the Hindu spiritual organization BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha and opened in 2005. With its help, members of the organization decided to demonstrate Indian culture to the world. Along with the amazing shrine architecture of pink stone and white marble, the complex includes a sprawling garden, sculptures and canals that can be navigated by boat. Allow enough time for yourself to study it completely, at least half a day. Please note that mobile phones and cameras are not allowed inside.

Kutab Minar

The tallest brick minaret in the world is an amazing example of early Indo-Islamic architecture. It was built in the very distant year 1193, but why exactly — remains a mystery. Some historians believe that the minaret was dedicated to the victory of Muslims and the beginning of their rule in India. And others are sure that it was simply used to call believers to prayer. One way or another, this man-made miracle of engineering is worth a detailed study. The whole tower is covered with intricate carvings and verses from the Koran. In addition, a number of historical monuments can be found nearby, so it is worth taking a walk around the surrounding area.

Bahai Temple

This building is also often called the "Lotus Temple" because of its shape speaking for itself. The temple is especially beautiful at night due to thoughtful lighting. The temple is made entirely of concrete and covered with white marble. You can enter the temple only until 5 pm (admission is free), but you can watch its “flowering” in the evening as much as you want.

 

The temple belongs to the Bahai faith. It is a monotheistic religion that proclaims the unity of all people and religions.

What to eat in New Delhi

Residents of New Delhi love to eat. And it makes sense to come here as a gastronourist. As in any capital, the local cuisine is diluted with the tastes of others: Chinese, Continental, Korean, Kashmir and many more.

 

Murgani Makhani is a chicken dish seasoned with tomato sauce. New Delhi may well call this recipe its own. According to legend, one of the local restaurants mistakenly left the chicken soaked in this sauce, but the result impressed everyone.

 

Momo — these steam dumplings came to the capital of India along with emigrants from Tibet. But the taste is completely different from Tibetian Momos, because the meat is generously seasoned with Indian spices, which gives them a special taste.

 

New Delhi fell in love and made the classic Middle Eastern kebab flirt with new flavors. And one of the most popular dishes for lunch, Chola Bhatura, soft hot bread with spicy beans. You can find this dish almost anywhere.
