- The architecture inside is just astonishing, the sense of the detail, the marble work, the dorures, it is just sublime. There is a very nice ludic path to understand the story behind this philosophy. No phones are allowed inside the the whole perimeter of the templeWritten December 2, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Placed along spacious grounds and gardens, this temple is like a floating lotus plant nested in a pond. After a fairly long walk, you get to a point where you must remove your shoes and place them in a provided bag and check it. There is a traffic jam here. Then you can enter the temple, although you must wait until an appropriate time when they let a group in at once. Once inside there are no photos allowed. You don't stay more than ten minutes because it's empty inside. Again, there will be a traffic jam to get your shoes.Written November 3, 2023
- A beautiful architectural temple. It was very crowded on the date we went and no social distancing but than Lord Krishna looks after his devotees. Wanted to eat at Govinda but very limited menu esp for dietary needs.Written March 23, 2023
- This is, like most temples, this is quite a complex structure. There are many areas, each significant, which our knowledgeable tour guide explained. All of the locals were paying homage to their respective God, all sincere and quite dedicated to their Hindu religion. We felt safe inside with locals not even acknowledging us except when we got in the way when ascending to a specific area. No shoes of course and lots and lots of chanting and noise. We made a donation and hoped their Gods would look kindly on us!!! Not much parking as like all of these locations right in the middle of urban Delhi. Plenty of hawkers selling their wares to navigate, but just be stern but polite. Again, best get advice on what day you intend to visit.Written April 10, 2023
- Visited with my friends. Being a Delhiites I should have visited it very early or very often, but I confess I visited there first time. Saw the place where Guru Teg Bahadur was beheaded by Aurangzeb.Written August 3, 2023
- It is not just beautiful to look at but thoughtfully planned providing good flow for pilgrims with multiple levels of separation using contour of the land.Written July 27, 2023
- We learned from our guidebook that this complex, not far from the Humayun mausoleum, was worth visiting. So, after the visit to that mausoleum, we got transported to it by a motorickshaw.
This is a high place for Muslim worship in present-day India.
Dargah means mausoleum. Nizamuddin (full name: Khwaja Nizamuddin Auliya, 1238-1325) is a Sufi saint, belonging to the " Chishti" order. The order originated in present-day Afghanistan and is one of the four main orders of the sect of Sufi mystical "monks". Within the Chishti order, I learned that Nizamuddin is the founder of a particular branch, called precisely "Chishti Nizami".
The surrounding neighborhood was named after him, and also the nearby Hazrat Nizamuddin station, which is today one of the three main railway stations in Delhi.
Here the Nizamuddin shrine stands (which, however, is much later than him; as far as I read it dates back to 1562), together with other buildings, which host other shrines, shops related to his cult, and also a small baoli (stepwell).
To get to the mausoleum, from the spot of Lodhi Road where our motorickshaw left us, we walked a narrow, picturesque and crowded pedestrian street, lined with shops of all kinds. These shops are evidently favored by the continuous influx of shrine worshippers. After passing through an entrance arch, the shops also continue inside, further narrow and winding. Finally, after skirting the baoli, you reach the very crowded area where the shrine stands, under a large, highly decorated marble canopy surmounted by an onion-shaped dome.
No less evocative are other shrines that flank the courtyard where the main one stands.
Behind an offer, we received our tray of rose petals, with which to sprinkle the shrine.
The whole is extremely picturesque. And it certainly would have been even more so, if we had stayed until sunset, when, apparently, the Sufis sing poignant religious hymns. But it was not in our program to dwell so much.
As far as we could understand, after the Great Mosque this is the most evocative Islamic place of worship in Delhi.Written March 17, 2020
- It is a very interesting visit first because it is the largest mosque in India and second because it was the last architectural project of the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. Unfortunately, it cannot be visited inside for tourists.Written November 16, 2023
- Absolutely a gorgeous Temple dedicated to lord Kartikeya. The most striking thing about the temple is its cleanliness. I have not seen any other temple which is so clean in delhi. Mostly visited by Tamil community. As a north Indian you may get a stare or two from the priests there which i did ignore as they might be surprised to see a northie coming to this temple. Otherwise its a nice and peaceful temple. Really liked it.Written February 22, 2023
- Very peaceful place. Really loved the positive atmosphere there.
I frequently visit this and i recommend everyone to visit.Written March 17, 2021
- Located near R K Ashram Marg metro station, this is the best place for meditation. The environment is calm, spiritual and one will find inner peace here away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The place is very clean, the garden is beautiful and well maintained.Written May 11, 2021
- I went to Kalkaji Mandir, along with my wife and parents.
How to reach here : Best way is via Metro. Hey down at Kalkaji metro station and 2 mins of walk will lead you straight to the Mandir.
The other way is via car and there is some not much, parking space available.Written December 22, 2019
- Beautiful temple dedicated to Lord Jagannath, Lord of the Universe.
