The square infront of Rastrapati Bhavan/ Rajpath starts from this Vijay Chowk. " Beating Retreat " ceremony which is official closing ceremony Independance Day isconducted here every Year. In routine days stop your Car/taxi and enjoy the square and surrounding precious buildings and Gardens. A nice visit.

Vijay chowk is landmark close to parliament house, you might just cross it and not notice. This place is surrounded by British architecture. Decorated by lot of fountains and lush green gardens you should definitely stop your car and enjoy the place.

It is the spot where the Rebublic Day Parade is held on 26th of January each year. A few fountains, canals and well kept lawns are found at Vijay Chowk, provided the weather is favourable. If your visit is short in Delhi, one can avoid to visit this place. However, if the stay is longer, one might stop here as... More

Vijay Chowk is not a four road crossing but more than that literally & figuratively! Its worth a walk in this power center of India with the Rashtrapati Bhawan on side along with South & North Blocks housing the Defense,Finance & External Affairs ministries,Rajpath & India Gate on the other side. Vijay Chowk is more famous for hosting the `Beating... More
