Following breakfast, meet your guide at the hotel lobby and proceed for sightseeing. We begin from the Old Delhi- a labyrinth of narrow lanes, which winds and bends between the tall and leaning buildings.
We will first visit the famous Red Fort, the residence of Mughal emperors of India for nearly 200 years until mid-19th century. Spread over an area of 254.67 hectares, the fort has several buildings, open courtyards and halls with rich synthesis of Persian, European and Indian artworks.
From here, we head to the Jama Mosque- the largest mosque of India that claims to have capability of holding more than 20,000 devotees at a time! The mosque has beautiful tapering minaret and marble domes! Now, we take rickshaw ride through the Chandni Chowk with vibrant and colorful shops and bazaars. It's the oldest and the busiest market of Delhi. Be prepared to experience the commotion, honking cars, yelling vendors, smell of food and perhaps the fumes!
In the afternoon, we visit the Akshardham Temple Complex- the latest addition to the temples of Delhi. 141-foot-high, 316-foot-wide and extending over 356 foot long, the temple is one of the largest Hindu Temple. Constructed by the 7000 artisans with the help of 3000 volunteers, the temple has rich carvings of flora, fauna, dancers, musicians and deities!
Next, we visit the Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, situated near Connaught Place, the head of New Delhi. This is one of the most important Sikh House of worship. The complex includes a large sacred pond, a school for Sikh studies and an art gallery.
If time allows, we will take leisurely stroll through the Connaught Place which is the largest financial and business center of India.
