Clement’s Town

We left Clement Town and took a train back to New Delhi after a very quick and satiating weekend getaway. I came back home with quiet contention on having been able to enjoy both the new and the old of the cities and in hopes that certain places I visited  remain unaltered reminiscent of the old cities while the rest of it is swallowed by the urbanized cities with burgeoning appetites.

Tulika Kumari

Hauz Khaz Village

These are just a few monuments. Delhi is home to many more and if you really look, you will find many more stories and legacies in the bylanes of this city. There are many places in the this beautiful city that are waiting to be explored by people, whether you are a local or tourist. With a population of close to 9 million, New Delhi is a city like no other in the world, that is defined by chaos, colour and beauty at almost every stage.  Further, Delhi has some great monuments that are spread across the length and breadth of the city, that for a history lover this city is literally a living paradise. In end, all we can say is that Delhi is an oasis of art and culture, where almost every era of history seems to have left its mark in the culture and monuments that are scattered  throughout this fabled city.

Mary Martina

Delhi: The city you need to hate in order to start loving it

When you hear the phrase “The Eternal City”, the first thing that comes to your mind is Rome. But, in my eyes, after spending almost a year in New Delhi, I can say that Delhi is just as “eternal” as Rome. The city has been built, destroyed and rebuilt many times. It has been a home of 7 different civilizations and has witnessed the fall of 7 great dynasties. Delhi has been around since the ancient city of Indraprastha. It was the capital of the Delhi Sultanate and the Mughal Empire. Finally, the city went through the British colonial time to become the capital that it is today.

HOW TO REACH THE GOLDEN TEMPLE

If you are visiting India, the nearest international airport is NEW DELHI. Amritsar is around 500 km from there. You can take a bus from the Kashmere Gate ISBT(Inter-State Bus Terminal) in New Delhi or book a private bus through ticketing apps and take your seat from their place of departure. The buses are frequent and the journey takes 6-7 hours.

Parimal Pratyush

The Journey Begins

We all have seen pictures of this monument while growing up but those pictures don’t do justice and one has to visit it to get why this has been on the list of seven wonders of the world. My best friend Sam and Sarah accompanied me, after reaching New Delhi, we decided to take a train to Agra and trust me it’s the most convenient and cheap way to reach the destination as the journey is roughly of 2 hours.when we reached Agra,we immediately booked our return ticket so that we wouldn’t have to face any inconvenience, taxi stand, and rickshaws were available outside the station, we booked a taxi for the entire day on rate of 800 Indian rupees($8 roughly)after negotiating with the taxi driver who was very kind to us throughout our journey.Although you have an option of getting much cheaper rides such as rickshaws they are less convenient especially when you are travelling during the summers as it’s very hot in India.

1. Historic Legacy

The Red Fort in Delhi was the creation of the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, which is also turned into a museum for tourists. It is taken care of by the Archaeological Survey of India, which maintains the monuments under the Government of India. The New Delhi was planned by British Architects, one of whom was Edwin Lutyens. It has the President’s Estate known as the Rashtrapati Bhawan, India Gate, PM’s house, etc. Connaught Place is a shopping hub of Delhi, also referred as the centre of Delhi, having a rich and fine architecture. Many bars, offices, cinema’s and clothing shops could be found in the Connaught Place. Delhi is moreover, surrounded by the Non-Capital Region (NCR) which has cities such as Noida and Gurgaon.

Old Delhi & New Delhi

Old Delhi & New Delhi India’s capital city can be part into two unmistakable regions – New Delhi and Old Delhi, keeping in mind they keep on growing next to each other. Both the parts hold their own uniqueness.

GETTING TO LEH

So we decided, two girls, to go and travel around India for almost a month. You can reach Leh from New Delhi by bus or flight. Since we had in total only 25 days to visit India (Ladakh, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Goa and Maharashtra) we decided to take the fastest way to reach Leh. On 26.9.2015 at 10:00 pm we arrived to New Delhi and step on Indian land for the first time. Our connection flight to Leh was the next morning at 5:15 am from national airport, so we needed to change the airport. People were telling us that we need to take a taxi to get there but since I always prefer to travel with local transport I insisted to go by bus. We exit the airport and there it was our first cultural shock. Firstly the heavy, hot and smelly air which made it a little bit difficult to breath in the beginning. And then we enter the empty bus which got immediately packed with Indian men who were staring at us. There were no women on the bus as the time was late in the evening. Many people were warning us about traveling in India especially when I said we reserved train tickets in a sleeper class. At that moment, being the only women on the whole bus we thought to

Anita Jerše

Roadways-

Take an ordinary or air conditioned Uttarakhand Roadways bus from ISBT Anand vihar, New delhi heading towards Haldwani, Uttarakhand. Haldwani is merely 45 km away from Nainital.

How to reach…

Rishikesh if approximately 245 kilometers away from Delhi.The best way to reach Rishikesh from Delhi would be by bus. Being a tourist place it has a large network of buses which connect it with important places.The bus is from Kashmiri gate ISBT, New Delhi to Rishikesh.

Dayara Bugyal: Trekking in the snow

We had already spoken to a local guide who had briefly explained to us our itinerary for the next 3 days. The big day finally arrived and we started our journey from New Delhi ISBT (Kashmere Gate) to Rishikesh at 11 pm on Republic Day eve.

The Great Himalayas!

The panoramic view of the mother earth always fascinates me. The crisp sound of chirping birds, the freshness of cool flowing waters of the mountains, the bounty of lush green forests and the vastness of limitless sky is all one needs to rejuvenate himself beyond any comparison. Recently, me and my husband decided take a short week-end break and travel somewhere in the mountains on a unique fun and frolic trip. New Delhi- the capital city being close to the Himalayas, we decided to head off to the abode of Gods- Himachal Pradesh.

Famous Places To Visit In Vrindavan, Mathura : Holy Town of India

Like every working professional longing for a break from his hectic working schedule, my colleagues and I decided to take a short road trip from Delhi to Vrindavan (a holy town in Uttar Pradesh, India which is one of the top holy places to visit in North India). Located in the northern part of India, this is a perfect weekend getaway for those residing in or around the capital of the country, Delhi. After looking up for the famous places to visit in Vrindavan (also known as God’s own abode), surfing on the internet to find facts about Vrindavan India and packing our backpacks, we started our 3 hours of road journey to Mathura from New Delhi at half past 5 in the morning. Driving through the beautiful farms of Haryana and watching sunrise was the best part of this journey. Though we were tired after driving at a long stretch, we got re-energized looking at the beauty of the town.

Delhi Diaries-- 1

Welcome to New Delhi– a patchwork of millions of variegated pieces, chaotic on the surface, but all united together by chords of harmony. Officially, the politically capital of India, and a proclaimed social and economic hub of the country, Delhi is popularly referred to as the “dil” or the heart of India. I moved to Delhi more than an year and a half ago to pursue a Master’s degree in English at a University here, and this place welcomed me with open arms. From being a big, intimidating, alien city, New Delhi turned into a home in just a few days.

Way to Kanyakumari 

I traveled with my family to south India from New Delhi for 10 days in the month of march, 2015 and we planned a one day road trip to Kanyakumari (Cape Comorin) from Allepey which was approx 235 Kms and took us 6 hrs to reach by car. Kanyakumari is small Tamil village situated at the tip of southern India where three oceans meet (Bay of Bengal, Indian ocean and Arabian sea). The uniqueness of this place is its location. I realized my car was running on the boundaries of southern India. My joy knew no bounds when I saw blue ocean at my right side from the gap between coconut trees planted on roadside. On the way the roman architecture of bungalows on both side of road were fascinating. Then we passed through various banana orchards and series of coconut farms. Although, the weather was humid yet soothing cool breeze helped us surviving the heat. According to the local people the best weather to visit south India is October to march. Our car driver Dayalan was very helpful and personally a travel guide to me. He saved our lots of time and answered happily to every question we asked him. The road journey was like escapism.

Incredible India In The Summer

That was mistake that we paid for dearly. Due to a mix-up that saw us locked out of the airport in the dead of the night and 3 hours before our taxi was to arrive, we found ourselves having to brave 7 degrees Celsius of cold in light clothing; very light clothing, might I add. However, the arrival of our taxi was the last of our troubles. The time taken from the airport to our destination was about an hour, which gave us more than enough time to view New Delhi in all its glory at dawn.

Train Travel in India

After three and a half years in the UK and Europe my husband and I were returning home to New Zealand.  We timed our return so we could attend my niece’s wedding to a Punjabi man, in India.  We flew into New Delhi in mid-October, travelled north by train to Nangal Dam and at the end of several days of celebrations flew back to New Delhi and began two weeks of visiting the cities of Varanasi, Agra, Jaipur and Jodhpur, before returning to New Delhi for our flights home.

New Delhi is the capital city of India. Founded in 1911 by George V, Emperor of India, the city was designed by the British architects Sir Edwin Lutyens and Sir Herbert Baker.
