Transportation from Connaught Place to Janakpuri?

Hello all,

We will be attending parties and a wedding on Dec. 3/4 in the Janakpuri area of Delhi. What is the easiest way to get there from our hotel in Connaught Place? We have an afternoon engagement party at the Janakpuri Hilton (although we may not be able to make it on time), an evening private party/henna ceremony at a home in Janakpuri, both on Dec. 3,and the wedding itself at Balsons Farms.

Our hotel is very close to a Metro stop. Would it be a good idea to take the Metro in the evening, dressed in party clothes? The wedding itself is in the afternoon - does it make any difference? If we do take the Metro, what is the best way to get from the Metro stop in Janakpuri to our destinations?

I looked at some taxi fares and they were suspiciously cheap. What's the best way to obtain a reliable, safe taxi in each of these areas?

Thanks again -

Sylvia

janakpuri hilton just at the exit of Janakpuri west metro station. easiest way is to go by metro. just see wheather ;you can go in normal dress and get into party wear in Hilton hotel.

you can book the commonly available meru or easy cabs radio taxi. their website will provide the call centre numbers.

i would not recommend you to travel in the metro when you are dressed for a party and are wearing jewellery and all and in Delhi such parties start late and hence end late and the metro services die down at 10:30-11 pm

so it is better to travel by the radio cabs which charge Rs.15-20 per KM in the day time and 20-25 per KM after 10 PM

best cab provider

meru cabs

mango cabs

i think the traveller mentioned that the function is the afternoon.

Take the cab, if planning to go with jewellery and party dress.
