Very very impressive! It is extremely monumental: the huge presidental palace with the two buldings of ministries are astonishing! You cannot go inside, but it really worths to check them out from the outside. Next to them is the Lok Sabha - the House of Commons. Unfortunately, you won't see anything because of the fences. Also not allowed to go... More

India gate, the gardens along the maidan, and the governental buildings are attractive. Make sure to walk the maidan and not merely drive ast the sites as most tour companies do.

Drive thought this, in rainy season and winters. Every time the beauty of red stone architecture is bewitching. If one knows history, one goes down the deja-vu lane at the sight of these grand buildings.

The Rajpath stretches from Raisana Hill to the India Gate (and beyond, to National Stadium). On either side of the grand boulevard is a pavement. Beside the pavement lies a wide greensward, kept green by abundant irrigation during the hot season. Set well away from the boulevard, across the sward, a row of trees parallels the entire Rajpath, providing pools... More

The place looks good when you drive pass as the shops in the road side are look beautiful with beautiful dresses and antique furniture and show pieces. But its really not a place for shopping.

Walk down this broadway from India Gate to Viceregal House. It's astonishingly impressive in scale and grandeur but go early or late as the sun is punishingly hot.

A lovely, tranquil spot to wander round and leave the the bustle of Delhi outside. It's on the way to the Red Fort so is worth a stop on the way there/back but otherwise it's not something you have to seek out as I didn't spend lots of time there. It's free to go in but make sure you have... More

Arrive there in the morning to get a clear view of Rashtrapati Bhavan from India Gate. Late evenings are the time for picnics for locals and lot of cricket, football and badminton all around. Buy a cone of your favorite ice cream and walk the entire path from Rashtrapati Bhavan to India Gate enjoying a gentle breeze and pay homage... More
