    Yesterday I went to Connaught place and one of my friends suggested me to go to bangala sahib gurudwara, after visiting this shik shrine it has changed my perception about Sikh religion, I must appreciate about the system that their guru have developed, SEVA is the asset in this religion, I got so mesmerized by the fact how they are feeding thousands of people every day for free, plus it doesn't matter how reach or poor you are, you get to sit and enjoy your food with them, plus there are people who collects your shoes and by the time you are back they polish it too. It's very neat and clean, and the colorful fish in pond looks amazing. It's highly recommended from my side.

    Visited this place on 27 Mar 22. Somehow due to Covid restriction the authority has closed the main gate hence cannot visit inside. Just clicked one or two pics from outside and moved.

    Hope they do open the things so that tourist can enter inside,

    Stunning place to visit, and clearly seen around the local area, lot of walking.

    Around the fort you can see where the British used to govern. There are many ornate carvings in the stone and the areas inside have so much detail and style.

    *Note the price is usually more expensive for foreigners

    We packed a lot in to our first day in Delhi, probably too much but it would have felt wrong to have not come here. Was a short time of tranquility in and felt appropriate to feel the ground with my feet within the memorial area.

    This is well maintained Well which was used to store the water during those olden days. Nothing much to see here other than photography. Best part of this place is it is well maintained step well with mesmerized architecture surrounding all 4 sides.

    Most of the tourists visit this place for photo shoot and nothing much here to see. if you don't have time better you can skip this place. This is on parallel road to Jan path and near to all main tourist spots so it will not take much time to you to reach this place. There is no parking place near this place so please note the same if you are travelling with your own vehicle.

    This park is super rich with history, best if you go with a knowledgeable guide who can add context. I would advise to go in a group of 3-4 people if you're not a Delhi local. Women should not go here alone, especially near sunset or sunrise, as some unsavoury people may roam around nearby. Do dress conservative.

    Entry is free. One of the park exits leads to a road that reads to the Bhool Bhulaiya (not really a maze, just a big multi arched rounded tomb type structure worth visiting). You can find it on Google Maps, it's a few minutes away on foot.

    The ASI or some trust badly needs to conduct maintenance here.

    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.

    The Museum and Planetarium are two separate entities.But recommend to first visit the Planetarium, because it is generally crowded and show timimg for Hindi & English is also different. Addition to this the ticket counter for space show only opens sometimes before the show starts. If you don’t want to enjoy the show, which is normally for 30 minutes, then you can enter free.The entry ticket for the sky show is Rs.50/- for child and Rs.80/- for adult.
    After enjoying the show you have to walk on the directions given to the Teen Murti Bhawan which is entry free. There you see different rooms used by Nehru,his jacket, numerous letters and other exhibits.The museum also has a souvenir shop. The entry gate of both Nehru Planetarium & Teen Murti Bhavan is separate so that you can enter on any side and exit on any side with a connecting road in between.

    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.

    Nice place for a visit alone or with family for a picnic. Government run place so not as great as could have been.

    Currently fenced and locked up (no access for visitors), however, worth a glance due its historical significance, built is the mid 1600’s it was one of many gates to protect the region , it got its name from the road that went through the gate that leads to the city of the same name. Probably not a stand alone attraction, however, worth a cruise by.

    Diwan I Aam as the name suggested is the meeting place of Mughal Emperor with the common people to sort out their grievances. It is a hall, open in three sides and backed by set of rooms. The chair of Emperor or the Singhasana is still there in a glass room. There are some grass fields also there on which you can sit.
