    If independence day is around the corner then visitors are not allowed close to India Gate.If you are first time visitors then do go, but if repeat visitors then take your call.Only one or two gates are open.Amar Jyothi complex is open .Cleanliness is maintained and guards try to keep people organized.

    The Red Fort which is also known as Lal Qila is a very old historic fort in Old Delhi. Every year on 15th august the Prime minister of India hoists the flag at Red fort. It had various structures inside. The day I visited their server was down and could not book entry ticket. I saw the red fort from outside and came back. One advise plan to book the entry ticket one day before. Too crowded place.

    Raj path is the 3km stretch wide road between Rashtrapati Bhavan to Vijay Choke to India Gate. you are not allowed to travel by Car whole distance so better to visit by walk. Best time to visit is in the evening. Start your walk from Rashtrapati Bhavan and end your walk at India Gate and ensure that you will be there at India gate during Sunset as Sunset at India Gate is one of the memorable scenery.
    After visiting Sunset comeback and enjoy the beautiful scenery in LED light glow besides Raj path. Specially Parliament Bhavan, South Block, North Block, Mughal Gardens, Rashtrapati Bhavan will be very nice to see in the Lighting.
    You can also enjoy snacks in this Raj Path road as there are many vendors available in the evening. If you are going in the Morning or Afternoon you will not enjoy your visit. so plan to visit this place by evening.
    This is the place where Republic day celebrations happened on 26th January of Every Year.

    We learned from our guidebook that this complex, not far from the Humayun mausoleum, was worth visiting. So, after the visit to that mausoleum, we got transported to it by a motorickshaw.
    This is a high place for Muslim worship in present-day India.
    Dargah means mausoleum. Nizamuddin (full name: Khwaja Nizamuddin Auliya, 1238-1325) is a Sufi saint, belonging to the " Chishti" order. The order originated in present-day Afghanistan and is one of the four main orders of the sect of Sufi mystical "monks". Within the Chishti order, I learned that Nizamuddin is the founder of a particular branch, called precisely "Chishti Nizami".
    The surrounding neighborhood was named after him, and also the nearby Hazrat Nizamuddin station, which is today one of the three main railway stations in Delhi.
    Here the Nizamuddin shrine stands (which, however, is much later than him; as far as I read it dates back to 1562), together with other buildings, which host other shrines, shops related to his cult, and also a small baoli (stepwell).
    To get to the mausoleum, from the spot of Lodhi Road where our motorickshaw left us, we walked a narrow, picturesque and crowded pedestrian street, lined with shops of all kinds. These shops are evidently favored by the continuous influx of shrine worshippers. After passing through an entrance arch, the shops also continue inside, further narrow and winding. Finally, after skirting the baoli, you reach the very crowded area where the shrine stands, under a large, highly decorated marble canopy surmounted by an onion-shaped dome.
    No less evocative are other shrines that flank the courtyard where the main one stands.
    Behind an offer, we received our tray of rose petals, with which to sprinkle the shrine.
    The whole is extremely picturesque. And it certainly would have been even more so, if we had stayed until sunset, when, apparently, the Sufis sing poignant religious hymns. But it was not in our program to dwell so much.
    As far as we could understand, after the Great Mosque this is the most evocative Islamic place of worship in Delhi.

    This fascinating complex contains remains of the first mosque built in India going back to around 1200 CE. The complex of buildings, towers, minarets, and some crumbling ruins make for a great history lesson and photographic adventure. The site can be very crowded but is quite large and you can wander peacefully. We had a guide who explained the significance of the various sites and left time then to photograph the intriguing ruins. Do not miss the famous Iron Pillar originally built around 400CE and has a huge amount of metallurgical history. There is an entry fee but the whole trip, a short distance from the centre of Delhi, is well worth it

    This is part of Mehrauli archeological park. It is a thirteenth century mosque with very beautiful architecture. There are three domes and inside there are beautiful carvings on the walls, of Quranic verses. It also has a well and a tomb structure inside the complex. There is also an ancient huge tree. Definitely worth seeing.

    The stepwells of Delhi have been made famous by the Bollywood movies shot there, the most famous of which was Rang de Basanti. Hidden within the Mehrauli Archaeological Park is this gem of a stepwell that is absolutely free from crowds. One can get really cool pictures here without any photobombers. The beautiful arches on the main level are a superb backdrop for pictures with a great play of light and shadows.

    The ASI is doing a superb restoration work and apart from the stagnant water, one can really enjoy the architectural beauty of the place. While going into the lower levels reaching to the water seem inadvisable due to the narrow steps in the dark littered with garbage, one must climb to the upper levels for the ornamented tombs and prayer areas. The view from the upper level shows the old and new juxtaposed in Delhi.
