Designed by notable English architects and proclaimed India's capital in 1931, New Delhi sits in the middle of a sprawling metropolitan area with a population of over 25 million.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Gandhi Smriti and India Gate. You'll explore and learn at National Museum and Crafts Museum. Go for a jaunt from New Delhi to Taoru to see Heritage Transport Museum about 1h 55 min away. The adventure continues: surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, take in the spiritual surroundings of Humayun's Tomb, step into the grandiose world of Red Fort, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Chandni Chowk.

Plan my New Delhi trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
