Delhi possesses all the hustle, bustle, splendour and magnificence you would expect from India’s capital city. At first, it can be a little bewildering but don’t let your initial impressions prevail, as beyond the immediate hubbub you will find that Delhi has an impressive array of cultural, historical and gastronomic delights to discover. Delhi comprises two distinct areas; New Delhi and Old Delhi and no trip to India’s capital is complete without visiting both parts.

  • Multi Centre Holidays


New Delhi, with its wide boulevards, colonial buildings and lush gardens was built as the imperial capital and was largely designed by British architect Edwin Lutyens. In stark contrast, Old Delhi, is filled with character and general disorder, with its winding streets and rickshaws fighting for space.

One of the most popular tourist sites is the 17th Century Red Fort in Old Delhi, built as a royal palace for Emperor Shah Jahan. The Jama Masjid, the principal mosque of Old Delhi is also a sight not to be missed but is best to arrive early to avoid the crowds. Other places to visit include: the Humayun tomb, Akshardham Temple, Qutub Minar, the National Museum, Lotus Temple and President House. For a shopping experience completely out of the ordinary, take in the amazing smells and sights of the wholesale spice market in Khari Baoli. If all of that sightseeing has left you exhausted and you feel the need for some serenity, take a stroll around the tranquil Lodhi Gardens.
