- WE had two tours in two consecutive years with this tour operator, one in North India, taylor made, and the second to South India : kerala, tamil nadu and karnataka, each for about a month.
the tours were perfectly organized with proffessional guides, and drivers, fantastic planning not rush rush, very good selection of accomodations, and good attention and monitoring that everything goes well as planned.
we strongly recommend this establishment, that made our jurney a memorable one we will treasure for life.Written 7 January 2023
- The pristine white Shanti Stupa stands beside the Ring Road, a part of the much larger area known as Indraprastha Park. You can either walk into Indraprastha Park from one of its many entrances along the main road, and then walk through the park to get to the Vishwa Shanti Stupa, or you can enter from the gate right outside the Stupa itself. My daughter and I chose to enter through the gate outside the Shanti Stupa. From this gate, it’s just a few metres in, to the stupa.
The stupa is located in the middle of a beautiful lawn, with flowerbeds and trees around, and the area beyond decorated in a way to evoke Japan and Buddhism: there are Japanese-style stone lanterns dotted across the space, and in the distance, there is a small-scale (and not very realistic-looking) plaster replica of Mt Fuji. This part, which also has some other plaster replicas, was however fenced off so we could not go and have a closer look.
The pathway to the stupa itself leads through an impressive carved stone gateway which looks like a replica of the one at Sanchi. The stupa, all beautiful white marble and with gilded figures of the Buddha placed in niches facing the cardinal directions, stands beyond this, with a series of plaques at its base, explaining the history of the stupa. This was inaugurated in 2007 with a view to helping foster world peace as envisioned by the Japanese Buddhist monk Fujii Guruji (1885-1985), who established the Nipponzan-Myohoji order of Buddhism. The Dalai Lama (who presided at the stupa’s inauguration) donated Buddhist relics to be housed here, as did dignitaries from Sri Lanka, Mongolia and Nepal.
Since my daughter and I visited on a hot and sunny day, we decided not to climb the stupa, since that would require taking off our shoes, and we guessed the stone would be very hot.
Near the entrance, opposite the stupa, is a rather less spiritual space: this includes a food court (which looks more like a set of very downmarket dhabas, and which we avoided) as well as a children’s play area, which was so dusty and rusted that I didn’t let my child get on there.
Entry to the stupa is free.Written 31 July 2019

- The grandest statue of Lord Mahavira in Delhi , the 24th Theerthankar of Jains. One must visit to sit and feel serene and should take a walk of its surrounding as well.Written 18 September 2022
- This tomb is the mausoleum of Imam Zamin, an Imam of the Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque inside the Qutub Minar complex and said to be a direct decendent of Muhammed. The mausoleum looks deceptively like multi-storeyed building, a common feature of the Lodhi Dynasty. The sides of the building are latticeworks and it’s possible to peer inside to see the marble cenotaph. It’s a cute little building and looks interesting as it’s right in the line of sight of the more famous tower in the background. One of the more interesting structures to see inside the complex.Written 28 December 2019
- History is erected at very nook and corner around Kashmere gate. It is part of imperial city shahjanabad.Written 12 August 2019
- In bustling South Delhi this is an quite sanctuary for morning or evening walks. In winters day time is great!! A jogging track of almost 1 km which keeps you away from heavy traffic road noise protected by thick old walls and Golf course on the other side. Authorities have to do much better maintaining this beautiful place. Lights malfunction often in the evening.Written 26 April 2019

worth collecting.Written 31 December 2018
- TUCKED away from Delhi's frantic life lies this peaceful memorial and gardens.
It is a place for respect and contemplation and is spread out over forty acres of gardens and paths.
This is a new site and was only completed and unveiled in 2019.
I visited it during a morning when I also went and saw the famous and very impressive India Gate.
The National War Memorial has been beautifully designed but, by the very nature of what it represents, there is a strong security presence that visitors should be aware of and co-operate with.
Flowering trees welcome those who go there while gently curving paths guide people to a wall of remembrance which both names the fallen and allows a little niche with each name so small floral tributes can be inserted. I saw this done at many sections of the wall.
There are four concentric circles at the Memorial which has a central obelisk at the bottom of which burns an eternal flame representing the immortal soldier.
I was able to stand at the top and look down into the memorial bowl and the sentry on duty nearby on a covered stand.
Many came to pay their respects while I was there and I left with a clear impression that while those remembered were gone they were not forgotten.
The Memorial is definitely worth a visit and should be viewed in tandem with India Gate for the best overall impression.
There are nearby toilets and visitors should take bottled water with them because the general site is quite exposed.Written 21 November 2022
- Leo Tolstoy was one of the greatest Russian writer. This place can be easily reached by Delhi Metro. Get down at Janpath Metro Station. I though the statue of Leo Tolstoy was in the middle of one crossing near Janpath Metro station. When I reached the crossing as per google map, I found nothing. Suddenly, I found the statue of Leo Tolstoy in the premises of Vyapar Bhawan. I took some photographs and moved on.Written 27 July 2017

Each side has a triple entrance with slopping buttress occupy each of the eight corners. The chamber contains a single door way on each of the seven sides, with the exception of the western wall, so that the tomb could also serve as a mosque.
