21 Incredible Things to Do in Delhi, India

The capital of India, and its largest city area-wise, New Delhi is chaotic, colorful, historical and bursting with tons of experiences that are sure to keep any traveler busy for days on end.

Centuries’ old buildings and markets beg to be explored, and delectable street dishes wish to be tasted and lush gardens serve as oases from the metropolitan madness.


Absolutely anything is possible in Chandni Chowk, and you’ll have to make do with a bit of squishing and squeezing on the narrow, windy old streets.

Chandni Chowk

India Gate

Constructed as a war memorial to soldiers of the British Indian Army, the arc-shaped monument is free for tourists.

Lotus Temple

This beautiful mandir is made out of white marble and is surrounded by nine pools of water which tend to light up at dusk.

Lodhi Gardens

Serene, green and remarkably calm- could it still be New Delhi? The Lodhi Gardens are a massive 90 acres, and is easily the most peaceful place in all of Delhi.

Humayun’s Tomb

Humayun’s Tomb is another beautiful work of art nestled away in a bit of greenery. The tomb belongs to former Mughal Emperor Humayun and was created by his first wife, Bega Begum.

Red Fort

A visit here is one of the best things to do in New Delhi for architecture connoisseurs- it was even designed by the same man who constructed the Taj Mahal!

Qutub Minar

The design is thought to be influenced by that of a minaret standing in western Afghanistan and is a nice display of Persian architecture in India.
