Hi Dennis - I sent the email from the info in your other post so I think since you have given the dates it is better that you don't visit Jaipur. You will not have enough time to do justice to Delhi and Jaipur in that amount of time (plus see Agra) and you will find plenty to do in Delhi. When you are in Agra, do visit Agra Fort along with the Taj Mahal!

Hi Atty,
As mentioned your conference will be over on 27th Sept. after that you can take flight to Delhi either on 27th evening or 28th morning. Visit Delhi on 28th drive to Agra on 29th and visit Taj at sun set.On 30th visit Agra Fort, Sikandra, Itmad-ud-daula and Taj from other side of the river. Next day on 1st oct.drive to Jaipur visiting Fatehpur Sikri on the way. On 2nd Oct. in Jaipur early morning visit to Amer Fort, city museum and observatory and drive to Delhi. Stay overnight in Delhi. On 3rd you can rest and do sight seeing in Delhi and fly back home.
Golden Triangle is very well connected by road and rail so it can be done either way. There are very good connectivity with trains also at these places. It depends how you prefer to do. For hotels you can look for some recommendations at the forum.Any other information?

Travel Tips for New Delhi

Kabootars in Delhi sky

by lynnehamman

Wherever we went in Delhi- especially Old Delhi (around Paharganj) we would see these flocks of pigeons, flying in formation. Inevitably there was someone standing on some rooftop, calling his birds back home. The sight and sound is magical, especially at sunset. The pigeons are called 'kabootars' and are well loved by mostly the Muslim population in Old Delhi.
This Kabootar racing has been a favourite pastime for centuries, in Delhi. Even the fog and smog of modern city life has thankfully not affected this wonderful sight. The cooing of the birds, and the whistling and coaxing from the master, is just entrancing. We were informed by one old gentleman that pigeon racing is a pastime that is passed on from father to son, and thus the sport has been kept alive for so many years. The birds become almost part of the family, and have given names. Even today there are races (some over very long distances-Delhi to Kolkata). In the past, Kabootars were used to convey messages.
The rooftops in Delhi are not just rooftops- they become recreation areas for families,and one can look down from taller buildings and see the life that happens here. A lovely sight was a father and son standing together, throwing grains of food into the air, where they were scooped up by the Kabootars.
Delhi has an amazing variety of bird-life- maybe it has something to do with the many trees and parks. I hope that this never changes. Lodhi Gardens is also good for bird-watching.

The Metro Rail in New Delhi

by Kumarjit

Getting around Delhi has even got better with the coming of the Metro Railway. It is a very convenient means of transportation, especially in bigger cities like Delhi and Calcutta( the only other big city in India having a metro raililway system is Calcutta).
If you are an Indian then other than buses and cabs you can also take the underground trains.
If you are a foreigner and wish to travel in and around Delhi in public transport, then the underground (metro) rail is definitely the best option for you. However, you can also take the cabs if you wish. But be careful before taking a cab as some of the cab drivers are not honest!

Paharganj fried chicken (night only)

by l_joo about Paharganj fried chicken (night only)

Paharganj fried chicken is a roadside vendor selling meat foods, they have chicken and fish mostly and most of the customers are worldwide tourists. What I found interesting here was you are actually standing to eat beside the toilet with sharp 'aromatic' smells mixing in the environment to create an unique atmosphere, very special, very Paharganj, I like it and was already here many times eaten the fried chicken at night, delicious and low cost. Nobody cares about the toilet, I saw many beautiful Korean Japanese European girls eating with smiles, so happy.

The Qutb Minar Complex.

by lynnehamman

This ancient complex houses the famous Qtub Minar, which is the tallest brick minaret in the world.Decorated with carvings from the Koran, it stands 73m high, and has five stories. The lower two were erected by Qutb-ud-din,ruler after the defeat of the last Hingu Kindgom in Delhi.Various successors after him added the upper stories, and the fifth story was added in 1368. It was, however, destroyed by an earthquake in 1803. An English patron replaced it and the cupola..
The Minaret is a fine example of Indo-Islamic architecture.It may be climbed, to give a view of Delhi, but was closed the day we visited.
In the complex also stands the ruins of the very first mosque to be built in Delhi (Quwwat-ul-Islam) It was constructed in 1190's , from marble pieces that had been taken from Jain Temples that were destroyed to make way for the mosque complex. All that remains today are the ruins of the mosque, and some pillars from the Jain temples.
The famous IRON PILLAR is also a remnant from the Jain temple- it remains a mystery to many experts, who have not yet understood why it has never rusted, despite standing open to the elements for centuries. Metallurgists have tried for many years to find an answer.

Connaught Place

by pchamlis

Connaught Place is the old commercial district from the Raj period of India. Set among a series of circular streets and lined by pillared arcades and shops, it's a great place to look for almost anything that Delhi has to offer for the shopper. Technically, only the ring road surrounding the shopping district is called "Connaught Place", but over time, the entire district has assumed that moniker. The physical location of Connaught covers the area from Plaza Cinema in the north down to Jantar Mantar and Tolstoy Marg in the south.

At Connaught, you'll generally find shops of good quality, although it's said that you won't usually find the best prices in this area. I will say that the shopkeepers and sales staffpersons are incredibly friendly and helpful.

There is also an underground market called Palika Bazaar, located literally beneath the green park at the very center of Connaught Place. There are apparently a lot of cheap options available for sale here, although we did not visit.

Connaught Place is open daily - except for Sundays - from approximately 10 am until 730 pm.
