Lotus Temple – Designed for tranquil worship, Delhi’s beautiful Lotus Temple (Bahai Temple) offers a rare pocket of calm in the hectic city. This architectural masterpiece was designed by Iranian-Canadian architect Fariburz Sahba in 1986. It is shaped like a lotus flower, with 27 delicate-looking white-marble petals. The temple was created to bring faiths together; visitors are invited to pray or meditate silently according to their own beliefs

Chhatarpur Temple – Delhi’s second-largest temple (after Akshardham), this impressive sandstone and marble complex dates from 1974, and is dedicated to the goddess Katyayani (one of the nine forms of Parvati). There are dozens of shrines with towering South Indian gopurams (temple towers), and an enormous statue of Hanuman stands guard over one part of the complex.

Gurudwara Bangla Sahib – This magnificent white-marble gurdwara (Sikh temple), topped by glinting golden onion domes, was constructed at the site where the eighth Sikh guru, Harkrishan Dev, stayed before his 1664 death. As at all gurdwaras, free meals are served to pilgrims daily. Just inside the entrance to the complex is a small museum, chronicling the history of Sikhism and its gurus and martyrs.

Swaminarayan Akshardham – Delhi’s largest temple, the Gujarati Hindu Swaminarayan Group’s Akshardham Temple was built in 2005, and is breathtakingly lavish.

New Delhi Eating Out

India Gate, New Delhi

Eating Out of Hotels
Eating out has become fashionable, come of age, one might say, in Delhi. Restaurants that are high on creativity and style are aplenty. In fact, Delhi has seen a surprising rush of new openings – and you can get stand alone restaurants that serve authentic Japanese, titillating Mexican, original Indian, or simply Lebanese. Every local shopping / residential area can be expected to have a spread of eateries, but we have chosen the best of them – the ones you could definitely pick for an evening (or afternoon) out because of the food / ambience.
Aurobindo Marg
A spread-out place with gardens – the reason it is a popular venue for events. Serves multicuisine (noon – 11:30 pm)
Jama Masjid
Almost an institution, Karim’s is a name that translates into kebabs and tandoors. The location, near Jama Masjid, creates a certain ambience, which is part of the whole Karim’s experience. (12:30 – 3:30 pm & 6:30 – 11:30 pm)

Hotel ITC Maurya
Bukhara proves to be, without a doubt, the mother of all authentic Indian food experiences. The signature (and massive) hot naans and malai kebabs join the slow-cooked dal bukhara in taking your palate on a journey that will delight. You’re also encouraged to eat with your hands within the earthy and rustic interiors.
Safdarjung Enclave Market
Starting out as a tiny counter in Safdarjung Enclave Market way back when, the man behind Rajinder De Dhaba has now branched out to include five more pseudo counters to his roster over the years. Serving malai tikka rolls and mutton seekh kebabs in plastic silver plates, this is the ultimate joint to soak in the Dhaba experience. Be prepared to stand in line to wait for your food, we promise it’ll be worth it.
Defence Colony Market
Efficiently serving perfectly crispy, paper-thin stuffed dosas, mini idlis, Sagar Ratna is a one-stop shop for South Indian food (mostly vegetarian). There are franchises all over the city but the original location in Defence Colony Market is utterly magical: don’t miss out on the South Indian coffee, offered in a funky steel glass.
Helmed by celebrity chef Sujan Sarkar, Olive Bar & Kitchen stands tall in a row of cobblestoned streets, nestled among boutiques and bars, boasting an almost European kind of vibe. The bohemian vibe with an open-air courtyard has turned it into a quintessential spot for Sunday brunch, filled with Mediterranean food, of course.
Ashok Road
Although Delhi is home to a whole set of “state Bhavans,”  paying homage to Andhra Pradesh, stands out. A simply fashioned canteen in the Lutyens Delhi area, the venue is all about dipping into the South of the country with the non-vegetarian thalis. You cannot leave without sampling the mutton curry (available only on weekdays) and the hyderabadi biryani on the weekends.
Malcha Marg
Since inception, Lazeez Affaire has come to be known for its superior service and delectable, ‘Lazeez’ khaana. Lazeez Affaire Malcha Marg was the first set up by Priyank Sukhija in the year 1999. Serving an interesting combination of Indian & fusion cuisines from two well-located outlets in the capital, the place is a popular spot for an outing with friends and family.

New Delhi Introduction

India’s capital and an important gateway into the country, Delhi is a bustling metropolis – an interesting mix of fast paced modernisation and carefully preserved antiquity. For tourists, Delhi’s strategic location allows easy access to the rest of the country by road, rail and air. This is also one of the prime reasons for foreign rulers to have repeatedly chosen Delhi as their seat of power. Modern Delhi, divided as Old and New Delhi, is a conglomerate of seven cities that has spread out and intruded beyond the river Yamuna right upto the neighbouring states of Uttar Pradesh and Haryana. Old Delhi expanded around Shahjahanabad, the seventh city of Delhi. Built by Mughal emperor Shahjahan, it is a maze of crowded streets and intensely colourful bazaars. Lutyen’s Delhi, the seat of the British Raj, includes the President’s Palace, the Secretariat, India Gate and the Parliament building. The beautiful tree lined boulevards around Lutyen’s Delhi, Diplomatic Enclave, Connaught Circus, Janpath, and the burgeoning modern residential area form a part of the ever expanding New Delhi. Starting with the Slave Dynasty in the 12th century through the Mughal rule, upto the two centuries of British colonisation, Delhi has endured the ravages of time and also enjoyed prosperity under various rulers. Qutab Minar, Humayun’s Tomb, Red Fort, Jama Masjid, the Coronation Park, Mutiny Memorial – all stand testimony to an illustrious past. Even as a point of entry and exit Delhi has much to offer. And if first impressions should be the last, Delhi’s metropolis with high rise buildings and concrete flyovers interspersed with well-laid gardens, magnificent domes and Victorian buildings, form a fitting prelude to the rest of the country.
