India Gate

An architectural marvel par excellence, the glorious India Gate is an emblematic jewel of New Delhi. It is a majestic structure that stands high at the end of Rajpath, amidst manicured lawns and water fountains carved in sandstone. Designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, it was originally known as the All India War Memorial. This structure was built in honor and memory of the scores of Indian soldiers who laid down their lives as part of the British Indian Army between 1914-1921 in battles across the world. India Gate is truly unique as the names of 13,300 fallen soldiers' names are inscribed on its walls. Beneath its arch burns the eternal flame, or Amar Jyoti, which has been alight since 1971. The area is especially breathtaking in the evenings when India Gate and the sprawling lawns are dramatically lit. India Gate stands directly across from the magnificent Rashtrapati Bhavan, the residence of the President of India. Drawing its architectural nuances from that of a triumphal arch, this is one of the most beautiful localities in the city and is favorite spot for picnics and outings all year round.

Rashtrapati Bhavan

The resplendent Rashtrapati Bhavan is a fitting ode to the nation's architectural heritage. Built for the British Viceroy over a span of 17 years, it was designed by architects Sir Edwin Landseer Lutyens and Herbert Baker. Spanning four stories and featuring 340 rooms, this massive edifice is a masterpiece, not only for its stunning architecture but equally flamboyant layout that encompasses spellbinding gardens and a museum complex. Completed in 1929, Rashtrapati Bhavan is one of the largest residences of state heads in the world and still evokes awe.

National Museum

A trip to Delhi would amount to much less if The National Museum were not on your itinerary. Built in 1960, this repository stores an endless and spectacular collection of Indian antiquities. The collection is truly fantastic and extraordinary; there are treasures from pre-historic times and from the time of the birth of Indian civilization. Priceless pieces of art and sculptures from the Indus Valley civilization, can also be found here. That's not all, the museum houses rare miniatures, Buddhist and Jain relics and an extensive collection of artifacts from the Chola Era. If you are interested in decorative arts; this museum exhibits those too.

National Gallery of Modern Art

Located in a building which once belonged to the Maharajahs of Jaipur, the NGMA has a setting that is ideal for showcasing the best of Indian artwork. This includes beautiful sculptures by some of the country's best known artists; displayed cleverly in the surrounding gardens. There are also paintings from the 19th and 20th Centuries, with works from artists, such as Rabindranath Tagore, Jamini Roy, Raja Ravi Varma and Amrita Sher Gill. There is a small but a rare collection of artworks by international artists as well, which includes names like Henry Moore, Jacob Stein and Kozo Mio. Spend a few hours studying the beautiful work here and lose yourself in the myriad of colors and shapes.

Lotus Temple

India is a known as a country of numerous religions and communities and this Bahá’í House of Worship is a symbol of religious tolerance and respect. Built in 1997 in the shape of a white lotus, the magnificent temple is made of 27 marble white petals rising at an elevation of 34.27 metres (112.4 feet). It is surrounded by nine crystal blue pools of water and lush green lawns. The image, thus formed, of a white lotus floating in water is simply breathtaking. This building welcomes worshipers, believers and non-believers from all over the country and the world, regardless of religious orientations, and it strives to create a peaceful and all-welcoming space. Thousands of tourists flock everyday to admire this mammoth lotus structure. It is reported to be one of the most visited buildings in the world. The information center on-site provides great insight into this emblematic religious and architectural symbol.

Red Fort

Erstwhile residence of Emperor Shah Jahan, the Red Fort is a magnificent sight that symbolizes the the artistic, architectural and historic legacy of the Mughal Empire. Built in 1648 along the banks of the Yamuna River, the mighty fort was constructed using red sandstone, its defensive walls spanning a distance of 2.41 kilometers (1.5 miles). Before 1857, the fort was a small city in itself, and was home to several nobles and warriors. Now, it stands as an emblematic jewel of the city, its faded scarlet facade a lure for admiring eyes. Only a part of the fort is accessible to the public, while the rest is the territory of the Indian army. Come evening, the fort metamorphoses into a luminescent wonder, accentuated by vivid lights and sounds - a special show accompanied by a voice-over that tells the tale of those who once called this fort their home. Boasting spectacular semblances of Mughal, Persian and Timurid architecture, the fort sits amid blankets of verdant lawns. The magnificent Lahori Gate leads into the fort, the grounds of which feature an array of historically-significant sites including the Diwan-i-Aam (audience hall), Diwan-i-Khaas (Hall of Private Audience), the enigmatic baoli (step well), Hamma-e-Lal Qila, the sprawling Hayat Baksh Bagh, the Shahi Burj tower,Rang Mahal, Lal Mahal and the Moti Masjid.
