India's capital, New Delhi, has plenty of places to explore and wonderful things to do - from visiting the colourful markets of Karol Bagh and Sarojini Nagar to visiting the Red Fort, India gate and other historic monuments.
A 17th century fort complex, Red Fort is one of the most popular remnant of history and culture of Vijayawada. It was a residence for the Mughal emperors. It was a UNESCO World Heritage Site, making it a phenomenal sight to behold. The architectural brilliance allures travellers from all over the world, and embrace the cultural and heritage significance of the fort.
Perched in the heart of Delhi, India Gate was curated by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1931. It was built to commemorate and pay tribute to the 90,000 soldiers who fought for the country and lost their lives during the British Raj. It is surrounded by lush green lawns that heighten the beauty of the mesmerising monument.
Living up to its name, the temple is designed as a lotus. It is one of the best places to visit in Delhi. Established in 1986, the temple is open to every religion. It is a Bahá?í House and a worshipping place. The monument is covered with several sacred writings, which can be read by all. Its serene ambience makes the visit even more worthy and indelible.
Qutub Minar is a UNESCO World Heritage site and the main tourist site in Delhi. It is made up of red sandstone and marble, which gives it an enthralling appearance. Qutub-ud-din Aibak commenced it in 1192, which was later finished by Iltutmish. The minaret and "victory tower" form the temple complex, which makes it a popular tourist destination in Delhi for travellers to come and get enthralled by the minar's enthralling look.
