A DAY IN NEW DELHI (Duration: 7-8 hours)
New Delhi is not just the city planned by Sir Edward Lutyens, an architect commissioned by the British to design India’s new capital in 1911, but a blend of the same along with its glorious past, depicted through ruins of forts, tombs of earlier rulers, dilapidated archways and much more. It is an experience of the old within the new.

On picking you up from the hotel, our tour begins with a drive looking at the impressive.

Rashtrapati Bhawan (President House)
Rashtrapati Bhawan, spread out on Raisina Hill, is the official residence of the President of India and the central point of New Delhi. Designed by Sir Edwin Landseer Lutyens, the architect of New Delhi, it housed the Viceroy during the British Rule in India until 1947.

India Gate
Driving from Rashtrapati Bhawan down on Rajpath, standing on a cross road at the centre of New Delhi is the India Gate. This 42 metre high monument was built in 1931 as a memorial for Indian and British soldiers martyred during World War I (1914-1918) and the Afghan War (1919). The names of the martyrs are inscribed on this imposing monument. Under the arch of India Gate is the Amar Jawan Jyoti or the ‘Flame of the Immortal Warrior’. The eternal flame burns day and night, paying homage to the soldiers who died in the Indo-Pak war (1971). The black marble cenotaph has a rifle placed on its barrel, crested by a soldier’s helmet and guarded by the flags of the Indian Army, Navy and Air Force.

We then visit the monuments.

Humayun’s Tomb
This magnificent garden tomb is the first substantial example of Mughal architecture in India. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Humayun’s Tomb, designed by a Persian architect, was built by the widow of second Mughal Emperor, Humayun (1530-1556). Humayun’s Tomb stands second only to the Taj Mahal in merit. It lies at the centre of a massive, square garden complex enclosed by high walls on three sides and the river Yamuna on the fourth. Within its premises lie several small monuments. It was from here that the last Mughal ruler was captured by the British in 1857.

Lunch at a local restaurant
Savour the flavours of Indian Vegetarian Food at a moderate local restaurant.

Qutub Minar
An important example of the Indo-Islamic architecture, the Qutub Minar standing at a height of 73 m, is the tallest brick minaret in the world. A World Heritage Site, this tower of victory was built in 1193 by Qutab-ud-din Aibak, the 1st Muslim ruler of Delhi, immediately after the defeat of Delhi’s last Hindu kingdom. At the foot of the tower is the Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque, the first mosque to be built in India. Close to the mosque is one of Delhi’s most curious antiques, the Iron Pillar. It is said that if you can encircle it with your hands while standing with your back to it your wish will be fulfilled.

Experience of Historical Hidden Treasures within the City
New Delhi has some amazing hidden treasures within the city. Visit to some of these places details of which can be seen walking down Janpath Street, earlier known as the ‘Queensway’, looking at the local Indian artifacts and apparel, reach the Central Cottage Industries Emporium, a Government of India Enterprise, and you can shop for memoirs and gifts if you require for your family and friends.
