Like the Yamuna that flows past it, Delhi’s fortunes have ebbed and flowed greatly over time. Often raised to glory and yet oddly abandoned several times over a thousand years, the city is no stranger to strange contradictions.
The City offers to you the best indulgence, varied from the grand, imperious architecture of New Delhi, the beating heart of modern India, is contrasted with the chaotic allure of Old Delhi, a pulsating labyrinth of people, rushing rickshaws, wandering cows and even the odd Bullock cart; from ladies in rainbow saris to flower-filled market stalls and the magnificent Qutub Minar. Don’t miss the chance to indulge in the traditional Mughlai dishes of Old Delhi, from tandoori chicken to Seekh kebabs. And visit the crimson-sandstone splendour of the Red Fort – once the residence of India’s Mughal emperors, the stronghold now houses a number of museums – Delhi is Big!
To enter its soul you need to explore and experience Delhi’s environment, culture, food, bazaars, festivals and crafts. It is a treasure trove where you can happily spend weeks indulging yourself in everything the city has to offer.
From Sohan halwa to sushi – Delhi is Delhi-Cious! The burst of multiple flavours tickling the palate in the Capital is the result of centuries of blending of regional and foreign cultures. Delhi is famous for its street food and there are a whole lot of places solely dedicated to such kind of food. Many of these food joints are generations old and you might either just stumble upon them walking through these streets or take a walk with the Delhi Walk food experts. Although Delhi is not characteristic of any typical food culture the most popular cuisine enjoyed by the locals and tourists is the Mughlai Cuisine. Mughlai delicacies have now become a rage not only in India but the world over for their aroma and spicy flavours.
