    The building and the ocean together make for one of the most impressive aspects of that location. You should make it a point to see it at least once in your lifetime, but the concept behind the water display is not going to be to everyone's liking. There is a sense of peace here.

    The whole area around the India Gate is interesting. You have the arch itself, and then beyond is the war memorial and beyond that is the memorial to those who died in the Indo -Pakistani conflict. Everything makes a tight visual unit and is impressive. There is a parking lot close by for convenience.

    Placed along spacious grounds and gardens, this temple is like a floating lotus plant nested in a pond. After a fairly long walk, you get to a point where you must remove your shoes and place them in a provided bag and check it. There is a traffic jam here. Then you can enter the temple, although you must wait until an appropriate time when they let a group in at once. Once inside there are no photos allowed. You don't stay more than ten minutes because it's empty inside. Again, there will be a traffic jam to get your shoes.

    We toured this market via rickshaw and it was a fun and unforgettable experience! Full of life and the vibrancy, colours and aromas that you read about in Indian markets. Very busy and bustling with a wide range of shops (haggling required of course!). Plenty of monkeys on the rooftops too!

    While on a school trip, our students visited the Gandhi Smriti Museum to learn more about Gandhi's life and final months in India. The museum is very detailed and well curated. The grounds are well kept too. Make sure you visit this museum to learn more about Gandhi's life when you are visiting Delhi.

    Located right in the heart of the New Delhi, Connaught place is a busting hive of activity. Before the bazaars, stalls and dining establishments sprouted around Connaught place, the area was all about Cinemas. In the 1920's it wasn't Bollywood and Hollywood shows that has the spotlight. It was built under British rule between 1929 and 1933. Robert Tor Russell designed this British Commercial center in collaboration with W H Nicholls. It is Circular and known as the largest commercial hub of its king in India.
    It was named after Prince Arthur, 1st Duke of Connaught, third son of Queen Victoria and uncle of King George VI of England, who visited India in 1921.
    The area in and around Connaught place is a shopper's Paradise. The Market is divided into two circles. Inner circle and outer circle. The inner circle comprises of Blocks A to F. All Major brands outlets are available in Inner Circle. The outer Circle of Connaught place consist of Block G to P having all big Show rooms.

    A beautiful architectural temple. It was very crowded on the date we went and no social distancing but than Lord Krishna looks after his devotees. Wanted to eat at Govinda but very limited menu esp for dietary needs.

    This magnificent street is perfect for an evening walk all the way to India Gate. It was especially filled with the spirit of national pride in the days preceding the Republic Day holiday in January.

    Surrounded by ramparts you find this monument to Gandhi where his body was cremated.
    We believed it was important to get close to the memorial, so like the many Indian present we removed our footwear so that we could approach in deference.
    There is a place before the short tunnel where you can leave your footwear. The monument itself is a simple black marble, it’s poignant and a good place to reflect on this important historical figure.
    The area is peaceful and nicely landscaped, and there are marble plaques with some of the musings of Gandhi.

    This is, like most temples, this is quite a complex structure. There are many areas, each significant, which our knowledgeable tour guide explained. All of the locals were paying homage to their respective God, all sincere and quite dedicated to their Hindu religion. We felt safe inside with locals not even acknowledging us except when we got in the way when ascending to a specific area. No shoes of course and lots and lots of chanting and noise. We made a donation and hoped their Gods would look kindly on us!!! Not much parking as like all of these locations right in the middle of urban Delhi. Plenty of hawkers selling their wares to navigate, but just be stern but polite. Again, best get advice on what day you intend to visit.
