Best places to see in India

Nizamuddin Dargah
Monuments
Thousands gather here daily to worship. Wedged between bustling markets and street-food stalls, this mausoleum contains the tomb of celebrated Sufi Saint Nizamuddin Auliya. Many come to tie red threads to the screens to wish for good luck, but there’s also another treat on Thursday nights – a concert of “qawwali” music, a Sufi style popularised by singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

India Gate
Monuments
Paris has the “Arc de Triomphe”. New Delhi has this – a massive arch that stands in tribute to India’s war-fallen. It commemorates the 70,000 Indian soldiers who died fighting for the British Army during WWI. Although it’s surrounded by parks, it’s best seen at night. The floodlights bathe the arch in preternatural light, a dramatic sight against the evening sky.

Jantar Mantar
Monuments
Moghul rulers had an insatiable thirst for astronomy. This classical observatory was built in the early 1700’s, commissioned by Sawai Jai Singh II, the Maharaja of Jaipur. Its thirteen sculptures are actually early scientific experiments, designed to measure the passing of time, the length of days and movement of stars. Take half an hour to investigate them for yourself.
Accommodation near Jantar Mantar
Red Fort
Monuments
History in vivid colour. Four hundred years ago, the fort was a tapestry of burnt crimson and white, typical of the late Mughal style. This was favoured palette of Emperor Shah Jahan, who commissioned the fort as his primary residence and to blockade against invaders. Painted a fiery red during the British Raj, it’s famed for its gateways, palace buildings and sublime sunsets.
Accommodation near Red Fort
ISKCON Temple
Landmarks
Whatever your religious inclination, this lavish temple will inspire a sense of wellbeing. The statues and religious tableaux inside are dedicated to Lord Krishna. His followers walk the path to enlightenment as laid out in the Srimad Bhagvad Gita. The best time to visit is during “aarti”, when devotees sing melodious chants and dance to a euphonious rhythm.
Accommodation near ISKCON Temple
Purana Qila (old fort)
Monuments
Timeworn, but a survivor. These red sandstone fortifications were built over five hundred years ago, during the reign of Sher Shah Suri. See the incredible blend of materials that went into creating the Qila-e-Kuhna Masjid Mosque, one of the highlights among the arches, domes and temples inside. Its melange of peppery reds and yellows are a sight to behold, especially at dusk.
