I had participated in a charity run on April 3, 2016 which had start and end points at the stadium itself. Being a regular marathon participant, I had visited several stadiums in other parts of country but the Iconic Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium turned out to be a sore point. Several parts of the stadium are in complete neglect with... More

It's a biggest stadium of India and is very old. It is basically for the athletics and other outdoor activities but it is also used for the bug functions and cultural events.

Multi-function sports complex that is one of the jewels of Delhi, and an impressive view from afar. Various sports are played here within the stadium proper, whilst the surrounding complex area is used for various functions. Plenty of signs help you navigate your way around. Fairly easy to get to via public transport too. Not much parking available though.
