New Delhi Things to Do: 442 reviews and 913 photos
Delhi, old and new, is a great city to explore on foot. The old city, around Chandni Chowk, teems with life all day. One gets a glimpse of the past here- although many of the fine old havelis that once stood here ar now hidden by shops, stalls and markets. Here and there one can still see a fine curved archway or a balcony with delicate carved filigree.Close by stands The Jama Masjid and Red Fort. Although there are numerous organized walking tours, I recommend doing this in your own time. The organized tours are quite hurried. I prefer the flexibility of being able to stop or go on at leisure.There are small guide books available at kiosks around the old city. TAKE NOTE OF THE CHAOTIC TANGLE OF OVERHEAD WIRES IN OLD DELHI
Friday is a very busy day around the Mosque- so choose a mid-week day.
Directions: Close to and opposite the Red Fort.
