What to see?

Or travel centuries back in time before the Mughal Empire rule and pay a grand visit to the tallest brick minaret in the world– Qutab Minar to understand about the first dynasty of Delhi Sultanate i.e. Mamluk dynasty. The Delhi Sultanate was annexed by the Mughal Empire in 1526.

If shopping means taking back some memories of India, then your search ends at Janpath. Think souvenirs, shoes, clothing, accessories etc. and you find it here that boast of local handicrafts and handlooms.

What to experience?
There is more than a historical journey of time immemorial in the capital city. Dive into another realm of experience of cinemas in an open-air theater or groove your way to a musical event; be it live bands in resto-bars or concerts held across the city if you are lucky to be around at the time. If the adventure in you is seeking for some more thrill, glide your way to an air safari and appreciate Delhi from a completely new perspective.
How to get around and what to keep in mind?
The best and safest way to get around the city is by metro rail network besides booking a cab or a three-wheeler auto. Keep in mind that all autos have a meter and you would want them to use it. If not, I trust that you have some very strong negotiation skills!
