New Delhi sights, India

What to see in Delhi in 1,2,3 days – prepared itineraries for sightseeing in Delhi.

The Indian capital Delhi is usually the first destination during a Golden Triangle tour. I recommend devoting at least 2-3 days to this city. First, to make first contact with India, because the country is striking at first sight, so the mind must develop an immunity :) Secondly, in this city are a lot of completely unique monuments of architecture, history and culture, and they are certainly worthy of close attention. In this article, I will tell you what to see in Delhi in 1-3 days.

What to see in Delhi in 1 day – Old Delhi

What to see in Delhi in 2 days – New Delhi

What to see in Delhi in 3 days or more

For ease of itinerary planning, I’ll break down each individual day by area with one or another attraction. And if you are going to Delhi for 1 day or vice versa for 3 or more days, you can put together your itinerary based on my experience-tested plan ;)

Delhi itineraries and places on the map

On the map, I’ve marked all sorts of Delhi attractions, from the Toilet Museum to the most ancient heritage. Below in the article, I’ve detailed three different itineraries for each day. The first day’s itinerary, through Old Delhi, is marked in crimson. The itinerary of the second day – for New Delhi – in yellow, and separately in blue I have highlighted those attractions that are not quite well located for a comprehensive visit with other places, but which are worth a visit, perhaps even dedicating a separate day to them.

Because of sanctions Booking.com, Agoda and other foreign sites are gone.

Now you have to use only Russian hotel databases to book accommodations. We use service Hotelukwhich searches for rooms in all available hotels around the world, and also helps to find the best price by comparing prices in different booking systems. The benefit sometimes reaches 1-2 thousand rubles per day. Try it yourself and compare!

Consider in detail each of the marked objects on the map of attractions in Delhi.

What to see in Delhi in 1 day – Old Delhi

Old Delhi is the main historical area of the city, where the formation of the Mughal dynasty and the flowering of the empire began. Even during the capture of the capital by the British, this is where all the wealthy inhabitants settled. Only in the 20th century, when it was rebuilt New Delhi, primacy is gradually shifted to the southern more recent districts of the city.

It is from here begins an overview of the capital in most guidebooks, because the historical legacy of Old Delhi attracts tourists from all over the world. It’s no wonder… By experiencing the local architecture and culture, you’ll discover a whole layer of unknown history. It is worth allocating a whole day, no less, to this area, as some of the greatest sights of the entire region cluster here. Let’s take a detailed look at what you can visit in Old Delhi in 1 day.

Red Fort (Lal Qila)

What to see in Delhi in 2 days

A whole complex of different palaces hidden inside a fortress with powerful walls of the famous red sandstone. It includes the main Lahore Gate, the stunningly elaborate white marble Khas Mahal Palace, and the Rang Mahal and Mumaz Mahal Palaces. There are also two halls where the Mughal emperor used to welcome guests – Diwan-i-am and Diwan-i-am . The Royal Baths of Hammam and the Moti Masjid Mosque . You can see photos of all these luxurious buildings in my detailed article about Red Fort in Delhi. It takes at least 3-4 hours to see the Red Fort.

How to get there: there is metro station Lal Qila literally nearby, a bit farther on the yellow line Chandni Chowk, although you have to walk from there, but you can get to almost any tourist part of the city by yellow line without changing the line. Recommended hotels near Red Fort: Hotel Tara Palace Daryaganj and WelcomHeritage Haveli Dharampura.

Jama Masjid Mosque

Delhi sightseeing itineraries

Continuation about the mosques. It would seem that the most famous mosque should have been at the emperor, ie on the Red Fort. However, the most popular and largest mosque in India is Jama Masjid. Now the entire area of Old Delhi is predominantly Muslim, so the mosque is constantly in service. But this does not prohibit tourists to visit it. The atmosphere there is very peaceful and pleasant, except that many pigeons dive above their heads and like to splash in the ablution tubs :)

How to get there: if you take the metro, go straight to Jama Masjid station but I advise to see the mosque together with the Red Fort from which it is not far away on foot. The recommended hotels near Jama Masjid are Hotel Aiwan-e-Shahi and WelcomHeritage Haveli Dharampura.

Kashmiri Gate

What to see in Delhi in 2 days

There is a metro station of the same name in Delhi. It is worth getting off at this station to get to the ancient gate that used to be the entrance to the city. They are so called because the road to Kashmir went through them. While Kashmiri Gate used to have important political and military significance, it is now just an architectural museum piece. Nevertheless, it gives a special insight into the atmosphere of Mughal heritage.

Getting there: The site is located near the Kashmere Gate Metro Station on the yellow line. Recommended hotels near Kashmiri Gate: Shaka Guest House.

Spice Market

Khari Baoli is the largest spice market in Asia. You can wander here for hours and get lost in the maze of stalls. Moreover, this market is almost 400 years old, it appeared at the time of the Moghuls near the walls of the mosque Fatehpuri Masjid and operates to this day. Some of the sellers sell spices already in the ninth generation. The market not only has fragrant peppers, curries and other masala, but also many different nuts and dried fruits from all over Asia.

For your information To see the sights of Old Delhi, I suggest staying in hotels in the same area. Or find lodging in the famous Main Bazaar, or in the Tibetan district of Majnu ka Tilla, from which the yellow metro line is the most convenient way to get to Old Delhi without a transfer.

If you are planning to spend 2 days in Delhi, it is most convenient to divide them into visiting first the historical Old Delhi and then the newer part of the city, New Delhi. I have already told you about Old Delhi and then let’s go through the main attractions of New Delhi in detail.

What to see in Delhi in 2 days – Old Delhi + New Delhi

New Delhi is a modern area of the city that only began building in the 20th century. It’s cleaner, greener, has more modern neighborhoods and business centers, but it has plenty of color.

The New Delhi area probably has even more attractions than the old part of the city. For a better itinerary, I have placed all the places in New Delhi in the order in which it is most convenient to visit them.

Presidential Palace

Delhi sightseeing map

An impressive complex of government offices – the presidential palace and the ministry, not far away is also the Indian Parliament. The entire complex is an interweaving of grand colonial architecture and garden city planning concept. On both sides of the broad avenues two buildings with domes seem to mirror each other. The prospect itself with its perspective and the rhythm of its wrought iron lanterns extends into the distance to the India Gate. A beautiful architectural creation of modern India.

Getting there: The nearest subway station is Central Secretariat, from there it’s better to catch a rickshaw or walk if you want to. It is a very good idea to do it in the morning when the government is rushing to work and it’s not too hot. The recommended hotels in the area are Shangri-La’s – Eros Hotel and Le Méridien New Delhi.

India Gate

What to see in New Delhi

India Gate is a monument built in honor of the Indian soldiers who died during World War I on the borders of Afghanistan and other combat points. Today the India Gate is a monument in the city center with many green parks and golf courses. An early morning stroll here is incredibly pleasant! Different from Old Delhi.

Getting there: Take the Metro to the Central Secretariat to see India Gate. The walk from the station seems to be long, but you don’t really need to spend much time walking along a wide avenue with some great views all around. Recommended nearby hotels are The Taj Mahal Hotel and Vivanta by Taj Ambassador.

The old fortress of Purana Qila

Review of the best sights to see in Delhi

From India Gate, you can walk to the old fortress of Purana Qila. I love it very much for some reason, although for the most part it is an ancient ruin. Even the walls are visibly crumbling, and there are only a few surviving structures inside. But it is incredibly quiet, green, fragrant with assorted flowers and couples in love. An ideal place not only to enjoy the antiquities, but also to rest from the bustle of the city! The Delhi Zoo is not far away and you can visit it on your way.

How to get there: you can walk to Purana Qila from Gateway of India, but we had to walk a long way, so it’s better to take a rickshaw for 15 – 20 rupees :) Or you can walk (or rickshaw) from metro station Khan Market. Recommended hotels nearby are La Sagrita – A Boutique Hotel and Vivanta by Taj Ambassador.

Humayun’s Tomb

What to see in Delhi in 2 days or more

No less quiet place, especially in the morning is Humayun’s tomb. During the day there are more tourists. One of the first mausoleums in the world, based on the concept of the Garden of Eden. By design, the mausoleum represented Eden, as described in the Koran with four rivers. The Taj Mahal was later built on the same principle. Humayun, who rests in the mausoleum, was the great grandson of the famous Tamerlane, the Mongol leader who conquered the Middle East. The mausoleum of the Indian Sufi Nizamaddin Olia is not far away and if you have time to spare it is worth a visit, as it is a very colorful place.

How to get there: The best way is to take a rickshaw from the Khan Market metro station. The Oberoi New Delhi and The Lodhi are the most decent hotels in the area, and there are a lot of cheap hotels around as the railway station of Hazrat Nizamuddin is nearby.

Lotus Temple

Delhi sightseeing guide for 2 days

If there is almost no time left, I suggest you get to the Lotus Temple. A very unusual temple, the like of which does not exist in the world. First of all, it is intended to be a temple of all religions. Here to pray and meditate can come followers of all faiths. Secondly, the inspiration for the design of the temple was the Australian Opera House, which in the form of a futuristic seashell is located on the shore of Sydney Harbour. The Lotus Temple in Delhi attracts with its unconventionality.

How to get there: The temple is within walking distance of Nehru Place metro station and is directly visible from the train platform (it’s above ground) so you can’t get confused about the direction. The hotels recommended nearby are: Hotel Le Cadre, there are several good hotels in this area, but not too cheap and decent – look them up.

For your information If you want to see the sights of New Delhi, the cheapest accommodation is either in Main Bazaar, or in the central area of Kannaught Place. The Blue Line subway line allows you to get to the sights of New Delhi with maximum convenience.

Well, here we have found the answer to such a popular question: what to see in Delhi in 2 days. Most tourists just spend no more than two days in the city. But for those who have decided to stay in the Indian capital for longer, I can’t help but touch on what other sights are worth seeing. They are also “must see” places, but because they are quite far away from the main tourist routes, I will put them separately, and you can decide for yourself in which day they should be included.

What to see in Delhi in 3 days or more

Akshardham

What to see in Delhi in a few hours

If you are driving through the city in passing and are asking yourself: what to see in Delhi in a few hours, I recommend Akshadharm. This is one of my favorite places in Delhi. I’ve been here more than once, both alone and with Mishutka. The temple is relatively new, already in the 21st century, but the architecture is exactly the same as the ancient Hindu temples with beautiful carvings on the stone walls. Impress not only the lush green gardens around the grandiose temple, but also singing fountains in the evening show. I recommend everyone to visit it for sure! Visiting the temple is free, the fountain show costs about 120 rupees and takes place daily at 6:30 and 7:30 pm.

How to get there: take the subway to Akshardham station on the blue line. When you get on the train be sure to listen to which station it is going to, because the blue line splits in two and you need to go towards Noida City Centre. If you happen to hear that the train is going to Vaishali Station, just get off at Yamuna Bank Station and take the next train to Noida City Centre. Recommended hotels near Akshadharm: Fraser Suites.

Qutub Minar.

Delhi itineraries for self-guided walks

One of the most incredible places in India, and in the world for that matter. A tall red brick minaret that reaches high into the sky and has been in perfect condition since the 12th century. Around the complex of remains of magnificent buildings with columns and halls. There’s also a pillar of the purest iron, which hasn’t rusted in centuries. No one really knows where it came from, but one opinion is that the iron was mined somewhere in space, since this metal in its pure form is not found on Earth. A very powerful place of power!

How to get there: it is better to use the metro and take it to Qutb Minar station on the yellow line. Recommended Hotels: Mostly budget hotels in the area, the best are Grace Home and Saket Bed and Breakfast.

Lakshmi Narayan Temple

Things to See in Delhi

The Lakshmi Narayana Temple in Delhi, or Birla Mandir, is a Hindu temple. All the walls are decorated with swastikas and Om signs, ancient Vedic sacred symbols. The temple was opened by Mahatma Gandhi himself, stating that any caste could come here to pray. Gandhi fought for equality in Indian society, so this bold step was a challenge to the entire ancient caste system of Indian society.

Getting there: The temple is located within walking distance of Main Bazaar, just across from the Rama Krishna Ashram Marg subway station. Recommended hotels nearby are The Metropolitan Hotel & Spa and over a hundred hotels in the neighboring Paharganj district.

Gandhi Smriti

What to see in Delhi in 1 day - Old Delhi

The Mahatma Gandhi Museum, or rather the house where he spent the last months of his life and in whose garden he was shot. The assassin was a member of a radical Bombay group that championed Hinduism and was sharply opposed to the tolerance of all religions that Gandhi advocated. It’s a very peaceful and soulful museum. You can go to this museum while viewing New Delhi on the itinerary for day 2 (yellow marks on the map), as it is practically in the center.

How to get there: get off at the Lok Kalyan Marg station on the yellow metro line and walk a couple of blocks. Recommended nearby hotels: The Claridges is a lovely colonial-era hotel.

New Delhi sights: What to see in 2 days?

The sights of Delhi are famous all over the world. There’s the huge Chandi Chowk market, the old Kas area, and the Qutb Minar. If you only have a few days to explore the Indian capital, our article will give you a list of the top sights of Delhi with photos and descriptions.

New Delhi in the evening

New Delhi is the capital of India with a population of 14 million. It is the second largest city after Mumbai. The official language is Hindi, but many locals also speak English, Punjabi and Urdu.

Delhi covers an area of 42.7 km², and is famous for its wide roads, boulevards, numerous parks and historical sites. Interestingly enough, the layout of Delhi is similar in many ways to British cities. For example, there is an area where there are 19 foreign embassies (this is typical for European countries), as well as two central esplanades.

India Gate

Gateway of India

India Gate is a memorial dedicated to all Indian soldiers who died during World War I and the Anglo-Afghan War. According to historians, they were at least 80 thousand people. The walls of India Gate carved the names of 13,000 Indian soldiers.

At the foot of India Gate there is an eternal flame, and a few meters away, a park was laid. The authorities of New Delhi are also planning to erect a National War Memorial nearby.

Seasoned travelers are advised to come to this New Delhi landmark in the evening – from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. they turn on the lights.

Location: Near Connaught Place New Delhi, New Delhi 110001, India.

Qutb Minar

A must-see in Delhi is the Qutb Minar, the world’s first brick minaret. This unique monument of Indo-Islamic culture, the construction of which began in 1193, and was completed in 1368. It is interesting that as many as five generations of rulers were engaged in the construction of this landmark.

According to legend, the Rajput prince Prithviraja Chauhana began to build the tower for his daughter, who could ascend to the top and be inspired by the surrounding nature before praying. But the idea could not be realized completely – already in 1190 the power in the city changed (a Muslim came to power), and the first floor was remodeled.

Qutb Minar in New Delhi

Qutb Minar is a unique sight for many reasons. Besides its venerable age and height, there are hundreds of inscriptions on its walls in Sanskrit (their meaning is not entirely clear), figures of saints, and the most important element – an iron column, which, according to historians, is more than 3,000 years old.

It is interesting that when one of the Persian emperors wanted to take this column, he ordered to bombard it with cannonballs, but it did not help – only small pits remained on the surface.

Near Qutb Minar there are other sights in New Delhi, India: Kuwwat-ul-Islam Mosque, Ala-e Minar Minaret and Imam Zamin’s Tomb.

  • Location: Qutb Minar, Mehrauli, Delhi 110030, India.

In addition to the shrine, the temple complex also includes several parks, sculptural compositions, a lake, a light fountain and an artificial paddling canal. Locals call the place “the residence of God on earth, which cannot be moved.”

The main attraction inside the sanctuary is the statue of Swaminarayan, which was erected in honor of the Indian reformer and preacher.

More information about the landmark is collected in this article.

Humayun’s Tomb

Humayun’s Tomb is a mausoleum commissioned by Hamida’s widow Banu Begum for her husband. This landmark is so beautiful and grandiose that it is often confused with the Taj Mahal.

As always in India, the mausoleum is located in the middle of a picturesque park whose name translates as “four gardens. Here one can see large flowerbeds, river channels, and decorative pavilions. In the center of the grounds is the mausoleum – its walls of pink sandstone and white marble are visible from afar.

Tomb of Humayun

The building itself resembles many palaces in India: one large dome and many small ones, on the facade – graceful stone lace and arches.

Inside the mausoleum looks like this:

Gurudwara Bangla Sahib

Gurudwara Bangla Sahib

If you are still undecided about what to see in New Delhi, check out Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, one of the many temples in the city that became famous among believers after the eighth Sikh guru settled here in 1664.

Externally, the building differs from other Indian shrines. First, the dome has a rather unusual shape for India, and in addition, it is gilded. Secondly, inside the sanctuary there are a lot of gold elements (pillars, walls, arches), so many tourists talk about the similarity with Orthodox and Buddhist temples.

Gurudwara Bangla Sahib is surrounded on all sides by a picturesque park with a pond, the water of which has long been considered sacred.

Here are a few tips from tourists:

  1. Come to the shrine in the evening – when the sun goes down, the place looks even more magical and mysterious.
  2. Anyone can have a free lunch at the temple’s dining room.
  3. Stop by the tourist center, which is located next to the attraction – there you can pick up a small book about the shrine for free, as well as a brochure of Sikhism.
  4. This is one of the few temples where tourists are very friendly and they don’t try to extort money.
  • Location: Ashoka Road | Connaught Place, next to Grand Post Office, Delhi 110001, India.
  • Opening hours: 08.00 – 19.00.
Chandni Chowk Market

Chandni Chowk is the biggest and most famous market not only in Delhi but in the whole of India. There are lots and lots of people here.

Chandni Chuok Market

The market can be divided into the following parts:

  1. Food Market. It’s a huge area where you can buy the products: vegetables, fruits, nuts, spices and cereals. There are also hundreds of shops with fast food, the cost of which is incredibly low. The food prepared here is really high quality – the vendors and customers know each other well, and the cooks are just ashamed to cook from bad products.
  2. Fatehpuri is a mosque located in the center of the market that serves as a wonderful reference point for tourists. You can say that this is a real corner of tranquility, because it is very quiet and sparsely populated.
  3. After the mosque begins more civilized part of the market, consisting of hundreds of small stores. Here you can buy fabrics, women’s saris, various hats and accessories.
  4. The old alleyways are also a very important part of the market, which creates the unique flavor of the oriental city. Since the market was built in the 17th century, but was constantly rebuilt, this place is a real handbook of history, where you can trace how the life of ordinary Indians changed.

Note that in India, one vendor always sells only one type of product. That is, if you bought a flatbread in a shop, you are unlikely to be able to buy a bottle of water here as well. Asians say that it would be dishonest to take a penny from other vendors by selling several kinds of things at the same time.

Even if you have no desire to buy anything, come and see these places anyway – you are unlikely to see anything like this in other cities.

  • Where to find: Near Red Fort, New Delhi 110006, India.
  • Opening hours are from early morning until 6:00-7:00 pm.

Red Fort

The Red Fort or Lal Kila is a Mughal citadel erected in the mid 17th century as a palace. For almost 200 years the building was the main residence of the Indian emperors and the place where crucial decisions for the country were made.

Red Fort

The Lal Kila complex includes one large and several small palaces, baths, covered canals, and a mosque. The most famous room within the residence is the Hall of the Public Auditorium, where meetings of the first persons of the state were held. In terms of design, it is also a unique room. The flat ceiling is “supported” by 60 red sandstone columns, and a large oak table stands in the center.

The motto of the former imperial residence is: “If there is a heaven in the world, it is here.

First, these are the ancient tombs of Muhammad Shah, Sikander Lodi, Shish Gumbad and Bara Gumbad. These men were the last sultans of Delhi from the Said and Lodi families.

Presidential Palace

For obvious reasons, you can only get into the building with a guide by signing up in advance for a tour on the official website of the residence. This can be done on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. During the tour, tourists can see only a small part of the premises.

ISKCON Temple

ISKCON is the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, founded in 1966 by a Bengali monk. ISKCON represents a branch of Gaudiya Vaishnavism, the most influential branch of Vaishnavism.

The building has three domes of unusual shape and structure that are difficult to compare to anything else. Inside there are more than 20 halls and rooms for priests. Only a few rooms are accessible to tourists:

  1. Library. This is one of the largest libraries in New Delhi, with more than 2,000 books written by both internationally renowned authors and local priests. There is also a multimedia screen where you can watch films about other ISKCON temples.

  3. Vedic Culture Museum. This is a small room where one can learn about the philosophical and Vedic heritage of India.
  4. The Vedic Studies Center is designed for students of neighboring universities and teachers who can hold seminars, conferences and meetings with scholars here.

If we talk about the religious current of Gaudiya Vaishnavism itself, it is worth noting that believers have a strict daily routine, so you should not come to the temple from 1 pm to 4 pm. This is when they pray.

  • Location: Sant Nagar Main Road | Hare Krishna Hill, East of Kailash, Delhi 110065, India.
  • Opening Hours: 4.00 – 13.00, 16.15 – 21.00.

Hauz Khas Village

One of the things to see on your own in Delhi is Hauz Khas, a small part of the ancient city that used to exist on the site of Delhi in the 12th and 13th centuries. The area got its name from the proximity of the reservoir, and from Farsi it translates as “royal reservoir.

In the middle of the last century, the area was redeveloped, but many of the authentic parts of the city Siri still managed to keep. For example, remained a network of ancient cenotaphs and the city’s seminary, which is now the center of Islamic education in New Delhi.

House of Cass

However, the main attraction of Delhi in the district of Hauz Kas is the Royal Reservoir. After the reconstruction it was reduced in size and became like a lake, but the authorities have preserved the beautiful local landscape and planted a huge number of trees.

Also be sure to visit the deer park, which includes:

  • a rose garden;
  • An area where the deer live;
  • long alleys;
  • A recreation area by the reservoir.

A little-known part of the Hauz Kas neighborhood is a pedestrian street that is home to famous brand boutiques, bookstores, nightclubs, art galleries, and quaint restaurants. Such neighborhoods are not typical of India, which is why this place is often referred to as the “National Capital of Ethnic Chic.” Here you can also find hotels 5 * and look at the wealthy Indians.

Be sure to visit the local market Khan. It is quite small and not very crowded.

The sights of Delhi are incredibly diverse and every tourist will find something interesting for themselves.
