These are the 5 Best Places to Visit in Delhi

Red Fort

Ask anyone about the top places to visit in Delhi. They will most likely start with the Red Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is huge and makes people think about how much effort and time it took to build.

From 1648, when Shah Jahan, 5th Mughal Emperor, decided to move his capital from Agra, to Delhi, it served as the official Mughal authority. Its reddish appearance is due to red sandstone, which was the primary material used for its construction.

Timings 7:00 AM to 5:30PM. Sundays: Closed

Entry Fee: Indians & Citizens of SAARC & BIMSTEC are charged 10 INR. Foreigners: 250 INR. Children below 15 years old are free.

Akshardham Temple

The Akshardham temple is a must-see on any sightseeing tour of Delhi. It is especially important for people with a spiritual bent. It was built in 2005 and is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records. It is worth visiting.

It dominates both the skyline and the minds of all who see it. The temple complex also has a stepwell, which is believed to be one of the largest in India. The main attraction is the idol and 20,000 deities of Lord Swaminarayana.

Connaught Place

It's Connaught place to others. To Delhiites it's just "CP". It is easily identifiable from a distance due to its colonnade, rows of luxurious stores featuring globally-respected brands, and bars and restaurants. For those who prefer the traditional, stylish way to do things or want to spend a day out, this is still the best place.

It is important to know that it has two concentric circles, the Inner Circle and Outer Circle. This is the place where Delhi's nightlife thrives.
