Breakfast in Delhi, and how to spend a few hours in the city

by Mittnic

We are arriving to Delhi airport early in the morning and in the afternoon we will take the train to Agra.

My questions are:

Where to have the best breakfast?

And how to spend a few hours before our train departures?

Many thanks in advance!

Depending upon which train station your Agra train is departing from- (it could be Nizamuddin or main Delhi station)

1) if from Nizamuddin- the nearby Khan markets have many excellent restuarants, opning usually around 9am. Take a pre-paid taxi from airport direct to Khan Market. After breakfast, hop onto an auto-rickshaw and wander around Lodhi Gardens, a beautiful park nearby.

2) If your train departs from MAIN Delhi station- get prepaid taxi from airport to Paharganj area, there are many good restuarants and coffee shops. This is in Old Delhi area, interesting to walk around.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE TRAFFIC IN DELHI IS HORRENDOUS, ALL DAY.MAKE SURE THAT YOU DO NOT GET CAUGHT SHORT OF TIME.

By getting pre-paid taxi from airport you will not be ripped off regarding fare.
There are pre-pay booths at airport near exits.

Just to chime in on breakfast, I absolutely loved having Puri Bhaji for breakfast while in New Delhi. Not sure where the best is but easily found.

hi,
Depending on which train station you are taking the train to Agra from, we could suggest places.
I would suggest you eat idly, dosa/masala dosa for breakfast(these are south Indian dishes and are popular all over India for breakfast and they are yummm!!)!!since it will be your first meal in India,better to take it slow.Go for the puris in Agra!
have fun,

If u r catching yr train from Nizamuddin Railway station, Best place for breakfast/lunch and dinner is "Comesum" which is situated right at station itself. It is very clean, air conditioned and remains open for 24 hours. U can eat anything like poori sabzi, thali, all north and south indian dishes, soft n fruit juices, sweets etc. Its vegetarian.

Good one.. but yeah all depends on the railway station or even if you wanna hangout in the city you can try The Tea Lounge at the Taj Palace Hotel near Dhaula kuan... The only place in town where Tea n coffee are served in English high Tea style and from there you can either go to south Ex market or even Gurgaon which is just ten minutes drive from Dhaula kuan.. You can also try Cafe Coffee Day just across the road from Taj Palace or probably Malcha Marg but restaurants at Malcha Marg do not ppen until 11:00 am..

Train Ticket in New Delhi Station.

by Stentorian

Getting a train ticket is as much easy as getting an ice cream. If u r a tourist and if u got an international passport, just go to the international tourist office at the 1st floor. Choose your train and get the ticket from the counter. No extra charge and u can make the payment in Indian rupees.

Standing restaurants

by l_joo about Standing restaurants

Standing restaurants can be found in India and New Delhi, this is the way most local peoples spent their time in eating. Most of the local food vendors or peddlers or even shops are not what you think like McDonald's or Starbucks, they are just as small as this one in picture. Tourists probably not getting use to the way yet, most tourists I saw still stick to those with menu and preferably drink Coca-Cola.

Visit Birla Temple

by NEILHALLIDYA

The Birla Temple is a significant Hindu Temple in new Delhi.

It features lots of extremely interesting Frescoes (written in English and Hindu) which give very interesting explanations on Hindu behaviours, progress, yoga and gods. I have always found Hinduism fairly difficult to comprehend but this information was clearly presented.

The architecture is striking and interesting and the temple is very clean and well maintained.

It is free to enter. A donation is suggested. You need to remove your shoes before entering.

Its well worth a visit.

India Gate

by josephescu

At the centre of New Delhi stands the 42 m high India Gate, an "Arc-de-Triomphe" like archway in the middle of a crossroad. Almost similar to its French counterpart, it commemorates the 70,000 Indian soldiers who lost their lives fighting for the British Army during the World War I. The memorial bears the names of more than 13,516 British and Indian soldiers killed in the Northwestern Frontier in the Afghan war of 1919. The entire arch stands on a low base of red Bharatpur stone and rises in stages to a huge moulding. The cornice is inscribed with the Imperial suns while both sides of the arch have INDIA, flanked by the dates MCMXIV (1914 left) and MCMXIX (1919 right). The shallow domed bowl at the top was intended to be filled with burning oil on anniversaries but this is rarely done.

The foundation stone of India Gate was laid by the Duke of Connaught in 1921 and it was designed by Edwin Lutyens. The monument was dedicated to the nation 10 years later by the then Viceroy, Lord Irwin.

Another, smaller memorial, Amar Jawan Jyoti was added much later, after India got its independence. An eternal flame burns day and night under the arch to remind the nation of soldiers who laid down their lives in the Indo-Pakistan War of December 1971.

Surrounding the imposing structure is a large expanse of lush green lawns, which is a popular picnic spot. One can see hoards of people moving about the brightly lit area and on the lawns on summer evenings.
