Where to find/book traditional dancing performance in December?

by boston_tourist

Hello, I will have 2 free nights in Delhi on December 10 and 11.

I would like to see a traditional dancing performance but cannot find anything at India International Center, Kamani Auditorium or Pragati Maidan (no shows at all? any links to online schedule?)

Are there other venues to check? Please advise and send links.

Thanks in advance!

Hi - a good place for info is Time Out Delhi magazine. You can pick up a copy while in Delhi. They have a website (http://www.timeoutdelhi.net/) but it doesn't list everything that is in the magazine itself.

Additional venues/info can be found here -

Thank you Donna and VPAS for the links. I checked them all out but no luck for me, no dance perfomances in Delhi on December 10-11. The International Festival has Sufi and Qawwali but not traditional dancing.

Are there "touristy" restaurants that have routine performances? Not ideal but something.

Thanks in advance

Hi

You might find the Sufi and Qawwali dancing (and the music!) very interesting. For a taste of it- go to youtube and look at some examples. Its fascinating.

Travel Tips for New Delhi

A saying which came true 8 times already

by josephescu

There’s an old saying the whoever establishes a new city at Delhi will lose it, and this has come true every time, i.e. 8 times already
1st Delhi - the Hindu kingdom of Delhi, near Qutb Minar (12th century)
2nd Delhi -Ala-ud-din founded “Siri”, built near present day Hauz-Khas (late 12th century)
3rd Delhi – Tughlaqabad, entirely ruins
4th Delhi – Jahanpanah, near Qutb Minar (14th century)
5th Delhi – Firozabad (today remains an Ashoka Pillar and the traces of a mosque where Tamerlane prayed during his attack of India)
6th Delhi – Purana Qila, near present day India Gate, created by Sher Shah
7th Delhi – shifting the mughal capital from Agra by Shah Jahan (17th century), mughal heritage largely preserved
8th Delhi – British India (in the context of Bengal championing Indian independence, moving the capital of the British India from Calcutta was announced in 1911 but construction was not completed until 1931, when the “New Delhi” was officially inaugurated, just to be “lost” 16 years later, together with the independence in 1947).

Where the locals shop

by oisha

Lajpat Nagar is a "market" (shopping centre) where you will find Delhiites shopping for clothing and homewares. It particulary specialises in fabrics and haberdashery for which there is a crowded stall section. The rest of the market comprises small shops by the roadside or in the internal pedestrian area. Open 6 days a week, closed Mondays. Every year I come here to buy bath towels, spectacles, cotton nighties, costume jewellery and pots'n'pans. If you need a scarf dyed a particular shade, they'll mix the colour and dye it while you wait. Mostly fixed prices but you can always strike a bargain if you're buying several things from one shop.

In the heart of the city, treat yourself here

by Chrischopp about Veda Restaurant

Find this upscale restaurant in the heart of Connaught Place. Enter past the giant double doors through floor to ceiling drapes used to block out the sunlight and passersby. You’ll be greeted by a gracious host and lead to a table on the right or left of the dining area. There is a aisle dead set through the middle running to the kitchen but you will be so transfixed by the wall fixtures, mirrors, lights not to mention the various oversized hanging ceiling fixtures the aisle traffic is not a bother.

Beyond the rich atmosphere and interior design, the menu is tempting at first glance. Veda describes their offerings as “cuisine marrying the traditional with the contemporary”. I call it wonderful Indian food well worth your effort to make of a long lunch or dinner.

Hyderabad House

by MM212

The largest of the princely palaces built in New Delhi between 1921-1931, Hyderabad House belonged to the Nizam of Hyderabad. It was completed in 1928 by the architect Edwin Lutyens in European style with a hint of Mughal architecture. Since the independence of India, Hyderabad House has been the property of the Government of India where it houses foreign dignitaries and holds special banquets and events.
