Description and Day-wise Itinerary

New Delhi City Tour

 

approx 9.00 - 9.30 hrs : Pick up from your hotel.

Jama Mosque -
This Grand Mosque, built in 1656 by the Emperor Shahjahan on a natural rocky outcrop, took 6 years and 5000 workmen to construct at the cost of nearly a million Rupees. A huge 28 m square courtyard accommodates upto 20,000 people at prayer times especially during Friday prayers and on Id when it looks like a sea of worshippers.

Red Fort -Its red sandstone battlements give this imperial citadel its name Red Fort (Lal Quila). Commissioned by Shahjahan in 1639, it took 9 years to build and was the seat of Mughal power until 1857, when the last Emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar was dethroned and exiled. (Closed on Monday).


Raj Ghat -
India's most potent symbol of patriotism is the site of Mahatma Gandhi's Cremation. A somber black granite platform inscribed with his last words "Hey Ram" (Oh God) now stands here.

13.00 - 13.45 hrs : Free time for lunch.

India Gate & Around - At the Eastern end of Rajpath, the 30 ft wide India Gate was built to commemorate the Indian and British soldiers who died in World War 1 and those who fell in battle in the North-West Frontier Province and Third Afghan War.

Presidents House - Designed by Edwin Luyten's to be the focal point of New Delhi during British rule, the house was built for the viceroy and is today the President of India's official residence. It stands on the crest of Raisina Hill. Parliament House was a later addition following the Montagu - Chelmsford Reforms of 1919 to house the Legislative Assembly.

Qutab Minar - The Qutab Minar towers over this historic area where Qutabuddin Aibak laid the foundation of Delhi Sultanat in 1193. He built the Quwwatul Islam Mosque and the Qutab Minar to announce the advent of Muslim sultans. Later Iltutmish, Alauddin Khilji and Ferozshah Tuglak added other buildings bringing in a new architectural style.

Humayun's Tomb - Humayun, the second Mughal Emperor is buried in this tomb, the first great example of Mughal Garden tomb and inspiration to the incomparable wonder of the world - Taj Mahal. Built in 1565 by a Persian architect Miraq Mirza Ghiyas.
