    Bang in the heart of Lutyens’s New Delhi stands a medieval step-well, one of Delhi’s few surviving step-wells (and most ornate too). The Agrasen ki Baoli, or Ugrasen ki Baoli, references a King Agrasen/Ugrasen, of the Sisodia clan, who is regarded as the forefather of the Agrawal community. Agrasen/Ugrasen is believed to have built this baoli, which (given that Agrasen/Ugrasen ruled some 5,000 years ago) seems hard to believe. The baoli’s architecture, in fact, is more distinctly Lodhi in style.

    The steps here number just over a hundred, and descend three levels to get down to the water (which is stagnant and filthy). On either side, similar to other step-wells such as Rajon ki Baoli, there are rows of arched cells. Just above the baoli, off to one side, is a mosque with arches and medallions of incised plaster.

    No entry fee is required to enter. Try to visit on a weekday, when it’s less crowded, or if on a weekend, well before noon. Later in the day, because of the baoli’s popularity with cinema lovers (scenes from a couple of Hindi films, PK and Sultan, have been filmed here), it gets quite busy.

    This is a place Delhi-ites go to relax and escape the craziness of the city. The gardens and buildings have been beautifully restored and are a pleasure to walk around but what I loved most was seeing local people out enjoying themselves. We visited on a Saturday and the park was full of people having picnics, playing bingo, taking selfies, playing frisbee. It was great to see another side of Delhi. It is very near the Lodhi Gardens and Humayan’s Tomb and the three together make for a great day.

    This is a small Haveli in a small crowded street of Chandni Chowk In Old Delhi. It was here that Mirza Ghalib spent last nine years of his life. The visit takes you back 150 years in history and brings in mind the images when Ghalib would have lived here. Sheer delight. The place has now been converted into a small museum of sort where things related to Ghalib are kept and his poetry is written. I had visited Chandni Chowk so many times earlier but was not aware of this historical jewel in one of the alleys. Quite clean and calm, must visit if you love Ghalib and his poetry.

    I booked an early morning private session with Master Vidhi, followed by a Chakra clearing at my neighby hotel.

    I am a fairly advanced yoga practitioner, and although I found the Asana side of the practise not to be physically demanding, (it would be appropriate for beginners as well) Master Vidhi was still able able to assist me at a very deep level, even with simple poses and breath work, teaching me things other instructors have not. It was a masterful class in the differences between Indian and western philosophies on Yoga.

    The setting in Lodi gardens was stunning, and it was a very special experience to practise there. The meditation aspect was wonderfully grounding. Perfect after my long flight.

    The Chaka Healing session I have no words for.

    I felt light and clear afterwards. Even weeks later friends have remarked that I seem like a different person.

    Wonderful experience. Preeti is a great teacher who is a fantastic cook. We did the vegetarian class. I learnt a lot about spices and the basic steps of Indian dishes. The food we cooked was amazing.
    Preeti and her husband welcome you into their house. It’s so great to eat with the family after the cooking was done.

    During our recent trip to India, we sought a comprehensive yoga experience and were fortunate to discover Better India Personal Yoga Tour on TripAdvisor. We booked a Golden Triangle Yoga Tour, covering Jaipur, Delhi, and Agra, with Ankit Pareek as our guide. Each morning began with an enriching yoga session led by Ankit, who also served as our exceptional tour guide throughout the day. Evenings were filled with diverse activities, including Ayurveda classes, bhajan chanting, and a day of Ayurvedic massage, all meticulously organized.

    Ankit's attention to detail was evident in every aspect of the tour. He ensured we had Satvik food arrangements and provided us with copper water bottles, enhancing the authenticity of our yoga experience. The combination of daily yoga practice, insightful tours, and evening activities offered a profound immersion into the cultural and spiritual heritage of India.

    In Jaipur, we explored the city's rich history and architecture, visited the iconic Hawa Mahal, and delved into bustling local markets. In Delhi, we toured landmarks such as the majestic Red Fort and the serene Lotus Temple, while also enjoying the vibrant street life. Agra's highlight was undoubtedly the awe-inspiring Taj Mahal, but we also appreciated the tranquil atmosphere of Mehtab Bagh, where we had a peaceful yoga session overlooking the Yamuna River.

    The evenings were particularly special, with activities designed to deepen our understanding of India's spiritual practices. The Ayurveda class provided insights into traditional Indian medicine, while the bhajan chanting sessions offered a chance to experience the devotional aspect of Indian culture. The Ayurvedic massage day was a delightful retreat, offering relaxation and rejuvenation.

    Ankit's expertise and genuine passion for yoga and Indian culture made this tour an unforgettable experience. His knowledge, coupled with his organizational skills, ensured that every part of the tour was seamless and enjoyable. We felt truly cared for and immersed in the local culture, making our trip to India not just a vacation but a transformative journey.

    We highly recommend Better India Personal Yoga Tour for anyone looking to experience a comprehensive and authentic yoga tour in India. Their meticulous planning, expert guidance, and commitment to providing an enriching experience make them an excellent choice for exploring the Golden Triangle while deepening your yoga practice.

    The Hidden Hour in Hauz Khas exceeded our expectations! The puzzles were intricate, and the overall experience was adrenaline-pumping. Definitely one of the best escape room adventures in town.

    What struck me the most about The Carpet Cellar was the variety and choice that was available in one place.
    And they have some exquisite pieces that will stay in your mind long after..

    But the most amazing part of our experience was surely our meeting and interaction with Mudita.. not only is she so knowledgeable and well versed in this field, she also seemed to understand very easily and quickly exactly what we wanted and guided us accordingly..
    I would definitely recommend The Carpet Cellar!
