Hello Delhi!

I have named this post “Hello Delhi!” because even though I have lived in India for my entire life this is the first time I visited my country’s capital. I have been to many capital cities around the world but nothing like Delhi.

India’s capital city, the country’s political hub – Delhi is a beautiful tale of culture & chaos, magic & mayhem rolled into one.



Rashtrapati Bhavan ( President’s Residence )

The city’s many scenes & sights have to be seen to be believed. Heritage Walks will do the trick for robust tourists. Explore Chandni Chowk ( early in the morning ) or head to the medieval ruins in Hauz Khas Village.

Other heritage sites include Jama Masjid, Red Fort, Humayun’s Tomb, Qutub Minar and Purana Qila or Old Fort.


Jama Masjid

This magnificent mosque will leave you awestruck. It’s a perfect combination of Red Stone, White Marble with beautiful calligraphy.


Humayun’s Tomb is a visual art and the building speaks for itself.

This Persian style of Islamic architecture is another marvel from Mughal era.

The beautifully carved Qutub Minar a site you don’t want to miss. Explore the ruins & enjoy the carvings.


The Red Fort

The fort’s artwork synthesises Persian, Islamic and Indian art which makes it a visual treat.

The people who are looking for a culture soaked experience need to add Dilli Haat to their itinerary. Dilli Haat has a food plaza & craft bazaar designed like a rural fair. This socio-cultural complex brings the real flavour of ethnic India to the fore. Shopping, a food fest and entertainment events – let’s call it a one stop for a truly enriching experience.

If you are a foodie then Delhi is heaven for you.

Places to Eat, Drink & Party:

  1. Amritsari Lassi Wala.
  2. Siddique’s Kheer Shop.
  3. Coast Cafe.
  4. Veda.
  5. Bengali Sweet House.
  6. Food Stalls inside Dilli Haat.
  7. Wok In The Clouds.
  8. Lodi – The Garden Restaurant.
  9. Kitty Su.
  10. Hauz Khas Social.
  11. Insomnia.
  12. Ricks Bar.

From Chandni Chowk’s Parathe Wali Gali to the finest restaurants there is something for every foodie.

Explore these many wonders either by cycle rides, metros or from the comfort of your cars. The capital of India is more than willing to accommodate everyone and the charm of the city is in its many contradictions.

  1. The pictures… wow!
    Although I went to Delhi this month only, but it was more about meeting friends than visiting such beautiful places. Your pictures made me think of visiting Delhi again and going to these places. The photography is so awesome.
    Thanks for the list of places to eat at 😀 Needed that.
