Red Fort : This fort was built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. Red stone was used in the making of this building. That's why it is known as Red Fort. Diwan-i-khas and Rang Mahal are the two very important building inside this fort.
Qutub Minar : Qutub Minar is one of the finest and most famous sightseeing place in India. It was built by first Muslim ruler of India Qutub-ud-din-Aibak. It is 72 mtrs high and has been declared as a World Heritage sight.
Lotus Temple : This Bahai Relegion Temple is located at Kalkaji, Delhi and made in the shape of Lotus flower. The temple is open for all the religions. People of all the religions come here to pray and meditate silently according to Bahai religion.
Akshardham Temple : Now a days, this is the most favorite sightseeing place among tourists in Delhi. It is the best example of modern ancient architecture. Musical fountain inside the temple is the most scenic beauty over here.
India Gate : It is a favorite picnic spot among the tourists. This was built in the memory of 70,000 Indian soldiers who died in First World War.
Gandhi Smriti and Raj Ghat : A visit to Gandhi Smriti will show you the exact spot where Mahatma Gandhi, affectionately referred to as the Father of the Nation, was assassinated on January 30, 1948. He lived in the house for 144 days up until the time of his death. The room that he slept in, kept exactly how he left it, and the prayer ground where he held a mass congregation every evening are both open to the public. Plenty of photos, sculptures, paintings, and inscriptions are also on display. You can also visit his memorial at Raj Ghat.
Lodhi Gardens : Lodhi Gardens provides a serene retreat from city life, and is the place to come if you're feeling tired and worn out. The vast Gardens were built by the British in 1936 around the tombs of 15th and 16th century rulers. Joggers, yoga practitioners, and young couples all enjoy this park.
Humayun's Tomb : If you think Humayun's Tomb looks a bit like the Taj Mahal in Agra, that's because it was the inspiration for the Taj Mahal's creation. The tomb was built in 1570, and houses the body of the second Mughal emperor, Humayun. It was the first of this type of Mughal architecture to be built in India, and the Mughal rulers followed it up with an extensive period of construction all over the country. The tomb is part of a greater complex that's set among beautiful gardens.
Swaminarayan Akshardham : A relatively new attraction, this massive temple complex was built by the BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha spiritual organization and opened in 2005. It's dedicated to showcasing Indian culture. As well as the astonishing architecture of the pink stone and white marble shrine, the complex includes sprawling garden, sculptures, and boat ride. Allow plenty of time to explore it thoroughly -- at least half a day. Do note that cell phones and cameras are not permitted inside.
Chandni Chowk : Chandni Chowk, the main street of old Delhi, is a shocking contrast to the wide, orderly streets of New Delhi. Cars, cycle rickshaws, hand-pulled carts, pedestrians, and animals all compete for space. It's chaotic, crumbling and congested, but completely captivating as well. As one of the oldest and busiest markets in India, its narrow winding lanes are full of inexpensive jewelry, fabrics, and electronics. For the more adventurous, Chandni Chowk is an excellent place to sample some of Delhi's street food. The renowned Karim Hotel, a Delhi dining institution, is also located there.
Jama Masjid : Jama Masjid is another marvelous treasure of the Old City, and it's one of the largest mosque in India. Its courtyard can hold an incredible 25,000 devotees. The mosque took 12 years to build, and was completed in 1656. A strenuous climb to the top of its southern tower will reward you with a stunning view (albeit obscured by metal security grills) across the rooftops of Delhi. Be sure to dress appropriately when visiting the mosque or you won't be allowed in. This means covering your head, legs and shoulders. Attire is available there.
