Day 02 Sightseeing in Delhi
After breakfast, get ready to take a tour of the fascinating city made of Old and New Delhi. Delhi has experienced the ups and down of history as it has been in existence right from the eras of the Pandavas and until the British rule.
Start your trip with a vest to the largest mosque in India, Jama Masjid, which was erected by Emperor Shah Jahan. The mosque courtyard can hold about 25,000 worshippers. Visit the busiest and noisiest market in Old Delhi, the Chandni Chowk that is completely chaotic and uniquely Indian.
Drive past other historic and significant buildings in Delhi, such as Red Fort, President House, Humayun’s Tomb, Rajghat and more. Red Fort holds importance till date as Prime Minister makes a speech from her every Independence Day and the Indian flag is hoisted at the Red Fort. Rajghat is where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated in 1948. Humayun’s Tomb was constructed in 1562 and was commissioned by Hamida Banu Begum, who was the wife of Humayun. Humayun’s Tomb is the first garden tomb that has used red sandstone on a large scale and was built by a Persian architect.
