Roadside saloons - Delhi
Roadside saloons

Ever thought about having a haircut or shave at a streetside saloon? They are pretty cheap in India. A haircut for Rs. 15 (25 euro cents approx) and shave for the same amount I guess. I know some of my VT friends have given it a try and do recommend it :)

Underground police station - Delhi
Underground police station

I guess this must not be an amazing thing for most of the tourists from the developed nations of the world, but it is unusual for India. Just in front of the Red Fort, on the main road, one can see the underground police station. Ever since the Red Fort has been given the status of a UNESCO World Heritage, it has been decided that all facilities will be made underground, including transport facilities and the police station (!) in the area around the Red Fort in order to ensure better visibily of the Fort and to help tourists take advantage of less congested area around. I found this really interesting.

Begum Samru's palace is located in the Chandni Chowk area of Delhi. It was built in 1822 AD on 75 acres land in the area by a witty Kashmiri Muslim women who later married an English soldier and lived in the same palatial house. The building was then called the Dilkhusa Kothi and she was famous among the social circles for throwing lavish parties at her house. Today, the building is called the Bhagirath Palace and it houses North India's biggest electrical goods wholesale market. It was once one of the biggest and most beautiful houses of Delhi with huge columns and large rooms.
