My Delhi winters aren't complete without a heritage walk to Mehrauli Archaeological Park. An evening at the Nizamuddin dargah for qawali is recommended. And no, it needn't necessarily be Thursday (as urban legend claims). For the ultimate foodies, Paranthe wali gali is a must. And if fast food is your choice of poison, make your way to Epicuria.
Delhi, one of the most metropolitan cities in India is undoubtedly the most iconic city that represents India. Religious monuments, great street food, street markets, lots of hustle bustle, mesmerising monuments (Humayun's Tomb, Red Fort, Qutub Minar, Akshardham Temple and Lotus Temple) and amazing nightlife are few of the things Delhi has to offer to its visitors. Also, Delhi has a good public transport system, especially in terms of the metro. It might not be comparable to some of its western counterparts, but still the infrastructure in Delhi is pretty good. I would highly recommend spending atleast 3-4 days in the city to truly experience the feeling of Delhi. And please do consider the weather of Delhi before you decide to visit. Summers are harsh and you might just not want to get out to see anything during the day. Some of the winter months have a lot of smog and visibility is quite low. So ideal time to visit would be December to March.
Delhi, the capital city of India is famous for several reasons. The city has everything within its vicinity. Food, clothes, furniture, decor, electronics- name it and you have it all! Delhi being my home city has a special place in my heart. From high-end malls like Ambience, DLF, Promenade and Pacific, you have thrift shops like Janpath, Sarojini nagar and Central market which are as famous and crowded as the shopping malls. You can never get bored when in Delhi as the places to visit here are a lot. One can go on a city tour and explore all the monuments like Qutub minaar, Red fort, Lotus temple, Laal quila, Humayuns tomb or go on a garden spree and enjoy the beautiful greenery and flower blooms at the Garden of five senses, Mughal garden and Lodhi garden. The best way to go around Delhi is to hop on a blue 'Ho!-ho! Bus' and roam around in a day. Art and artifacts lovers have a lot to explore in Delhi as well. You can go on a visit to the National Arts Gallery or spend a day in the Dilli Haat at INA or if you are lucky enough, you can get to explore the Trade fair at Pragati Maidan, or the Surajkund crafts fair or the Dastkaari bazaar. Delhi and its lip smacking food are famous worldwide. Chole bhature, rajma chawal, gop gappe, chaat, chole kulche, kulfis and ice creams; everything served in Delhi is loved by all adults and children like. My ever favourite food to eat in Delhi is the yummy plate of rajma chawal served in Shankar Market, CP, kulfi from Roshan in Chandnichowk, yummy crispy Kachodi served in Kamla Nagar and Moolchand paranthe wala in South Delhi. Chandnichowk and Lajpat Nagar market are the two markets that suffice all your shopping as well as food cravings. Delhi has a well-established metro connectivity and you can easily go to one part of the city to the other. Besides the well-known places in Delhi, there are a handful of hidden gems which deserve a visit as well. The Tibetan Market near Majnu ka Tila has an eastern vibe going on and you can buy trendy clothes and satisfy your hunger with yummy momos and pancakes. Champa Gali, also known as the Liberty Village is located near the Saket metro station and is very lively and full of cafes and an air-conditioned thrift store. The Banglasahib Gurudwara in CP, Nizammudin Dargah and the Cathedral Church holds high significance ans are visited by people from different parts of the country. Several films like Delhi-6, Rockstar and Fukrey have been shot in the capital and you will love going to these places visited by your favourite stars all by yourself!
From historical monuments to crowded shopping malls, from Mughal gardens to Delhi University campus, the capital city has multiple personalities making it 'The good, the bad and the ugly'. The Capital city of India and the base location to explore North India, Delhi is considered to be the city with a heart. New Delhi is a vivid blend of traditions, cultural diversity, political importance as well as architectural brilliance. It bridges its historical glory with the current modern era. It is a popular tourist spot and also houses multiple theatres and centres of performing arts. Delhi's architectural brilliance can be traced as back as 4th century AD when the Iron Pillar was built in the Mehrauli area, which hasn't shown any sign of rusting yet. The Qutub Minar, India Gate, Rashtrapati Bhawan, Delhi has numerous monuments showcasing both architectural and historical magnificence. ISKCON Temple, Akshardham Temple and the Lotus temple are some other beautiful buildings here. However, Delhi's magic lies in the Chandni Chowk area near the Jama Masjid with the old bazaars bustling and chirping with thousands of visitors haggling with vendors to buy things at the cheapest rate possible. Delhi's food is equally important to describe why people keep coming back to this wonderful city. From 5 star hotels and restaurants to the Parathe Wali Gali, Delhi has an amazing food culture and if you are not used to Indian street food, you might also get to suffer from Delhi Belly, but it might be just worth it.
Please tell me about some good places to have non vegetarian street food in Delhi
Try the Tihar Jail Road for non veg food in West Delhi. Lalu Kebabi in Jama Masjid for succulent mutton and beef kababs and nihari. Al Jawahar opposite to Jama Masjid for delicious non veg fare. Nizamuddin for some great non veg parathas. Ghalib Kebab Corner, Nizamuddin for great mutton tikka, Nizam's Kathi Kabab in Connaught Place, for Kathi Rolls. For the ultimate culinary treat from all across the country, head over to the Dilli Haat in INA. From the delicious momos from Sikkim to the sea food from Lakshadweep, this place is a great go for a non veggie street food craving.
