Anyone who has seen Hindi movies at one time or the other must have seen the place. It is a place must be seen and winter is the right place to visit the area. If you are there during republic day events then it is a bonus to watch the beating the retreat.

While it is not really shaped like a square, and some may even consider it to be too big for a square, this is a lovely square to walk in. The square offers the two famous Secretariat buildings, fountains, lawns – and even some monkeys (in the park between one of the fountains and the south block building). It's a... More

Considered to be one of the most... More

There is nothing much to see other than to visualise the grandeur of past and it becomes lively during the national holidays. The surrounding scenery looks nice in the heart of the bustling city.
