Things to do in Delhi
Delhi is a city of dramatic contrasts, and is the most popular starting point for any tour of India. A tour to Old Delhi includes the Red Fort and the mosque of Jama Masjid with a stroll through the bazaars of Chandni Chowk ("Moonlit Square"). A New Delhi travel includes the Humayun's Tomb, in many ways the precursor of the Taj Mahal, the India Gate, a memorial dedicated to the unknown soldiers who laid their lives in the World War I, the President's House, and the Parliament House.
Standing tall in all its majestic glory, Humayun’s tomb is set in sprawling, lush gardens in the heart of Delhi. It was one of the earliest mausoleums to be built this way, and one of the best-preserved and most significant Mughal-era buildings. The tomb, is the final resting place of Humayun, the second Mughal emperor.
Almost as old as the history of the Delhi Sultanate, the iconic Qutub Minar, the world's tallest brick minaret, dominates the skyline of the city. Standing 73 foot tall, this five-storeyed tower, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, remains one of the most magnificent buildings of India from the medieval era.
