New Delhi Things to Do

  • Visit Lotus Temple - The Bahai House of...

    To begin with I am not a spiritual person neither do I practice any religion although I am Hindu by birth. But I do crave for peace and the perfect place in Delhi to find some is Lotus Temple. This 30 year old structure constructed by the Bahai house of worshippers is open to all religions and is located very close to Delhi Metro. One should leave...

  • Agrasen Ki Baoli - a Photographers's...

    Another weekend came and I had this urge to visit some place in Delhi which is not so famous and yet holds some significant history. A little help from Google directed me and my roomie (who had recently bought a nice DSLR) to "Agrasen Ki Baoli" which is a protected monument by the Archeological Survey of India (ASI) under the Ancient Monuments and...

  • Gurudwara Bangla Sahib

    The largest Gurudwara (Sikh house of worship) of Delhi is not only one of the important places for Sikhs but also a place to offer your prayers in silence (not during weekends though which sees a huge rush of devotees). The compound has a 'Sarovar' whose water is considered Holy by the Sikhs. The water is considered to have healing powers and is...

    One of the very old and famous places to have some mouth watering "Aalu Tikki" and "Dahi Bhalla". Located in the Chandni Chowk area and in the lane very next to the metro station it's a very small shop and has no place to sit or hang out. You just order eat and move on or pack your stuff. It's always super busy and the only two dishes served here...

New Delhi Nightlife

  • Cheapest pub to party hard!!

    True to what they claim "Lowest Liquor & Food price in Delhi/NCR" (obviously for a pub). We had a plan to go for another Pub but unfortunately we got late and then searching for another option stumbled upon this. We had to wait for about 10 mins for the entry of 7 stags and it surely was worthwhile. It was IPL finale and the bar had about 6-7 LCD's...

  • First Class Train Delhi - Mumbai

    In my opinion the Rajdhani Express is the train to catch from Delhi if you are travelling to Mumbai ,as it travels through the night arriving in Mumbai Central at around 08.30am the next day. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rajdhani_ExpressBy India rail standards, the first class is fairly clean and booking allows you to have a private compartment as...

  • Faith

    I felt rather uncomfortable in some Indian temples. Dozens of people concentrated in their prayers, and a few westerns snooping and taking pictures of everything. I tried my best not to disturb anyone, but couldn't avoid a smile observing a very small child, perfectly imitating his father's behaviour in the great mosque.What, in religion, is really...

    Some of the Jewelry Stores (even those that seem reputable) sell a mix of solid and plated gold at a 22K price. I bought a bracelet and a ring from the same store. The bracelet turned out to be solid gold, while the ring was plated. The reason I know this is because the jewelry store Tanishq has a machine that tests the gold. They put the piece in...
