Rajpath, New Delhi

4.5
At Rajpath, see how a ceremonial boulevard became one of the most historic roads in India. If you start your walk from the western side, observe the presidential palace nearby situated on the Raisina Hill. As you head eastward, notice the vast lawns, canals, and rows of trees which decorate the avenue along its entire length. As you reach the end of the king's road, the India Gate--a triumph arch and war memorial--stands tall in the middle of Children's Park next to the national stadium. Many visitors like to attend the Republic Day parade here, which proudly showcases India's defense capability and cultural and social heritage.

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists. For budget accommodations, consider the neighborhood of Paharganj, just west of the New Delhi railway station. Noisy and packed with peddlers of every kind, the area offers some of the least expensive rooms located relatively near major attractions. Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors. Always call or visit the website in advance to check on prices and amenities included.
