Akshardham at New Delhi is a Mandir – an abode of God, a Hindu house of worship, and a spiritual and cultural campus dedicated to devotion, learning and harmony. A beautiful place… Explore the Mandir, Abhishek Mandap, Exhibitions and Water show.

Half day in New Delhi (13 Replies)
I am backpacking in India and over night in New Delhi close to the main railway station. I leave from Indira Gandhi Terminal 17:15 for Goa the next day. Can anyone suggest an itinerary to include perhaps the Red Fort and/or Swaminarayan Akshardham? Is it possible to do both sites, are they open early enough? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have no interest in museums Thank you
