    Amidst hustle bustle of the Capital..this place gives one the desired solitude and strength to face another day! Guru Vani is soul calming and the kada prasad is delicious as ever! There is langar all day. There is a Sikh history museum in the Gurudwara premises. One can donate ration for langar and sit by the sarovar to feel the divine vibes! There is a clinic for all who need medical help. Wahe Guruji da Khalsa..Wahe Guruji di fateh..

    Only solution to reach Delhi Airport through heavy Delhi Traffic is Metro Airport Express.

    I always go to Select Citywalk PVR theatre to watch my favourite movies in my leisure time. I like this theatre because of its big screen and brilliant visuals, which offers an ultimate experience. PVRs have well-equipped seating for an older person to enjoy movie time. I recently went to PVR to watch KGF 2 with my family; undoubtedly, we had a great time there. Clean, hygienic and well maintained, in my opinion it is the best movie theatre in Delhi.

    Such a marvellous temple with beautifully decorated interiors. The temple complex is very neat and clean. You will feel peace and positive vibes once you enter inside. The closest metro station is Nehru Place.

    That was my first-time experience at Promenade Mall. I found the outlet of almost every brand and a good interior with huge space. Their parking was like icing on the cake. They have the authorized parking of PARK+, which saves much time while driving through the mall.

    If you are a first timer, read this fully for a satisfying experience.

    Location :Located near to Rajiv chowk metro station.
    But the entrance is comparatively small and for first timers its not so easy to notice.

    Parking : couldn't find any dedicated parking nearby. But their website mentions that nearest parking is 2min away. we went through a cab.

    Tickets: the best way to buy tickets is through klook app. As I got two tickets for 710rs total. While the official site says the online ticket is 650 and direct ticket rate is 900.
    You can also check and buy the tickets through many other online sites. Kids below three years can visit free. And there is a child ticket for kids above 3 years.

    And I had lot of doubts regarding VIP tickets but Noone shared about it extensively. And it's a waste of money in my view if you are visiting on a week day or weekend morning.

    Customer service - have mixed feedback about them.
    The front desk people - not so concerned about ViP tickets or explaining about the benefits. They just check the online tickets and let you in.
    There was no disturbance or irritating supervisors once you are inside. Free to roam here and there and click as many pics as possible.
    Only when we entered the bollywood actors area in the final area of museum, we found an official photographer, who clicks pics for us. And even they don't tell any specifics and cost of photographs.
    To our utter disappointment, after the complete tour, we came to know that, we can take as many pics using the photographer and get them all as soft copy in a pen drive for around 500rs ( great deal but never disclosed).. Since we had less time, we didn't take a second round to get professional pics.
    The sales person in the wax hand molding areas was really helpful. We need to pay around 800 for a wax hand mould with filling. Must buy here. (though it's pricey).

    Wax statues - No complaints about the statues. They are fairly good and close to real life persons. My personal Favourites were Sachin, salman khan, mary Kom, will Smith. There were some very poorlu made statues too like sunny Leone.
    Some statues have nice photo ops like Salman khan on cycle rickshaw, Tom cruise on a bike.

    And the bollywood hollywood sections had very less light to capture good pics.

    Points to note:
    1. Spend minimum 2 hours to have fun wit your family clicking individual pics.
    2. Use the official photographer as much as possible. As u can get the soft copies at a much cheaper rate. Physical copies cost too much.
    3. Outside food and drinks will be kept in locker. You can collect while returning back.
    4. Go early in morning to enjoy with out crowd.

    This is a must visit place if you are in Chandni Chowk area. Located very near to the Red Fort, the place is well maintained and beautiful. Once inside, you will feel inner peace and calmness.

    Set up in 1949, this National Museum houses over 2 million artefacts from the ancient civilisation. On display are the Relics of the Buddha (5th to 4th BCE), unearthed in Uttar Pradesh. Outstanding specimens of Buddhist Art, illustrated through almost 100 exhibits in stone, bronze, terracotta, stucco and painted scrolls. The artefacts represent Buddhist arts of Nepal, Tibet, Central Asia, Myanmar, Java and Cambodia. Many of these relics stimulate a sense of devotion, dedication and love for humanity.

    I am eternally blessed to have personally seen the beautiful Buddhist Art in New Delhi. I remain deeply humbled by the teachings of Gautama Buddha.

    Spent a few hours at the Crafts Museum. We were glad we went and enjoyed in particular the textiles exhibits, which were curated well with great English language signage and some interactive technology. Handicrafts displays were great too, showcasing some of the amazing diversity of India. We also appreciated the short movie on women weavers. The chariot is really something too. We wanted to like the outdoor exhibits more - the positive was the peaceful setting and lovely trees. The negative was the structures were poorly signed, inaccessible, and kind of arranged randomly among construction piles and debris areas. They also have craftspeople making and selling some items, but the actual museum shop was apparently closed (indefinitely?). Cafe Lota looked promising, but the 20-minute wait stretched to over an hour so we gave up. Maybe best to put your name in before viewing the museum.

    The is undoubtedly a place where all art lovers should go. Especially we should our kids there to make them aware of our art heritage. Though I wish the collection was a bit more vast
