Discover Delhi

Get acquainted

Those in the know suggest hiring a taxi or an auto-rickshaw or even take the Delhi metro and creating your own tour that takes in some of the main attractions. Or you can try cycling the city at dawn.

Have a haggle

Delhi's famous Chandni Chowk market is a magnet for bargain lovers, but families might prefer the less hectic atmosphere of Dilli Haat. To shop with the locals, head for INA market. See our blog for tips on Delhi's best free things to do.

Beautiful places of worship

Delhi is well known for its religious buildings. Jama Masjid and the new Akshardham temple are on every must-see list, but it's worth squeezing in the lotus-inspired Bahá'i House of Worship too. And don't forget all the fascinating shrines and tombs.

Walk in Gandhi's footsteps

The house that Mahatma Gandhi was staying in when he was shot is now a shrine and museum. You can pay your respects at an eternal flame, burning at the spot where he died.

Take a rest

After packing in all that the city has to offer, grab a picnic and refresh yourself in south Delhi's Lodi Gardens, with its monuments, wild birds and wide open spaces.
