Beautiful homely city

I must say that Delhi is the city which will accept all who come from any state. It has a culture of every state, it has food of all states, it has people from all states. There is a room and place for everyone in Delhi. I just love my Delhi. One more thing which is now associated with Delhi as a life line of Delhi is the Delhi metro.

A Trip To The Capital City

Though I am a resident of Bihar but last year I shifted to Noida for my study. But I have visited Delhi properly 3 years back.
Delhi is the capital of India and that separates it from rest of the states.
Though I knew about the climate of Delhi but when I went out for the Delhi visit, it was irritatingly hot and spoiled my visit. So, I would rather suggest you to visit Delhi in Winter or automn time. Climate in Delhi is always worse in all the season but in winter you have atleast Sweater to wear. Visiting Delhi in Summer is wasting your time, you won't enjoy it to the most.
However I managed to visit most of the places of Delhi.
So, I am going to tell you what the travellers should visit in Delhi and Advise to them :-
1. Delhi Metro :- Of course, being a Bihari it was always my wish to travel in Metro and as soon as I reached Delhi my first and foremost desire was to travel in Metro. Delhi Metro is the most widest metro of India. And yes, the most important part of Delhi Metro is "Metro Ki Bhasad", that means "Metro Ki Bheed". Yes! Metro ki Bheed, I was also laughing like you when my friend told me that Metro Ki Bhasad Achi Lagi? Travel in Delhi Metro, rather than taking bus, cab or auto.
2. India Gate :- Lies in the Central Delhi, India Gate attracts most of the travellers. It doesn't not cost anything. Night Out at India Gate is amazing. If you are in Delhi for long time then must do the night out at India Gate. It is amazing.
Nearest Metro Station to India Gate is Central Secretariat. President House :- After visiting to the India Gate, head on to President House. It lies linear to the India Gate. The best time to visit to the President House is during Independence Day. It is
Decorated like a bride. It looks very beautiful. Do visit it during night.
3. Cannaught Place :- Cannaught Place or CP or Central Delhi. Being located above Rajiv Chowk Metro Station, Cannaught Place is the actual New Delhi. It is designed and made by British. It has blocks. If you are visiting Delhi then you will come across to the CP once and it is beautiful. It looks like UK ( except those garbage piles ).
The National Flag at Central Park is very huge. Must visit.
4. Akshardham Temple :- Nearest Metro Station is Akshardham Dham. It is chargable and they won't allow Mobile phones inside it. It would be collected outside and will be returned after you exit. Do visit Akshardham in evening to see the light show. To see the light show you have to pay extra.
5. Humayun Tomb :- Nearest Metro Station is JLN Stadium. It is also chargable. Great architecture view.
6. Jama Masjid :- Nearest Metro Station is Jama Masjid. It is the largest mosque of India. One should must visit it during the EID.
7. Red Fort :- Nearest Metro Station is Red Fort and Chandani Chowk. It is Red in color and our Prime Minister hoist Indian Flag on Independence Day at Red Fort every year. There are also a small market inside it and then the fort. You may not be allowed to take snacks or water inside the Red Fort. Drink enough water so that you don't get dehydrate inside. I didn't know that, so after visiting the whole Red Fort (as it is very big from inside), I was hunting for the water bottle.
8. Chandani Chowk :- Chandani Chowk lies in the Old Delhi and the nearest Metro Station is Chandani Chowk. It is the hub for the shopping, especially wedding shopping. There are narrow lanes of chandani chowk, you should visit it. If you are looking for shopping at reasonable price then go for it.
Also visit the Parathe Wali Gali in Chandani Chowk. It has all the varieties of Prathas.
9. Lotus Temple :- It is designed in the shape of Lotus. Nearest Metro Station is Kalkaji Mandir. It is temple from inside. You have to put your shoes in a sack and submit it outside. You would have to silent or switch off your Mobile phones before entering into the temple. You also have to be silent inside the temple. It is pin drop silent inside it.
10. Qutub Minar :- Constructed by Qutub ud-din Aibak and later finished by Iltutamish, Qutub Minar lies in the Mehrauli area of Delhi. Made of red sandstone and marble, Qutub Minar is a 73-metre (240 feet) tall tapering tower of five storeys, with a 14. 3 metre (47 feet) base diameter, reducing to 2. 7 metres (9 feet) at the peak. It contains a spiral staircase of 379 steps.
Nearest Metro Station is Qutub Minar. You'd have to take auto from Metro Station. That's it.
Hope my advice would help you when you travel in Delhi.
Thank You. :)

Delhi Overview

Delhi, the capital of India, is located in north India, surrounded by Uttar Pradesh and Haryana on three sides, straddling the river Yamuna. Administratively, it is a Union Territory, called the National Capital Region, but it is also partially a state, having been given its own legislative assembly in 1991. In addition there are the closely linked satellite towns of Gurgaon and Faridabad in Haryana and NOIDA and Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh.   Contemporary Delhi includes all the sites that had been the capitals of North Indian empires for a thousand years from the many dynasties collectively called the Delhi Sultanate (1206-1526), to the Mughal Empire (1526-1857), to the British colonialists who made it their capital in 1912. It was declared independent India's capital in 1947.   Several monuments are evidence of this history. Among them: the Qutb Minar (12th-beginning of 13th century) and Humayun's Tomb (1570) both World Heritage Sites; the Mughal citadel Red Fort (1648); India's largest mosque, the Jama Masjid; the British-built India Gate and the planned and green area of British New Delhi, now holding political and bureaucratic residences, the Indian Parliament and President's House. In fact, the Archaeological Survey of India recognizes some 175 monuments in Delhi as heritage sites. Thus, Delhi often forms a visitor's Golden Triangle with Agra (200 kms away) and Jaipur (250 kms away), to which it is very well connected.   Delhi is also a shopper's hub with the centrally located Connaught Place market, South Extension, and many malls all over town, especially in Gurgaon. All big hospitality chains have hotels here, and restaurant and bars abound.   Delhi has the Indira Gandhi International Airport and is connected to various cities in India and the world. It is by and large thought of as a hot city and a summer visit, up to humid September, is best avoided.
