Reasons to go to Delhi

2Dal Tempered With Clay Kasoras
Dal Tempered With Clay Kasoras

Ever thought of savouring a delicacy infused with an earthy aroma? Yes, you read it right! The broken clay kasoras give the red masoor dal a beautiful earthy flavor and that's what makes this recipe so distinctive.

HolidayIQ Traveller Rachit Kuchha says, “If you are a foodie and visiting Delhi, Chandni Chowk is a must. For vegetarians, mouth-watering parathas, dahi bhalla and chaats are a must-try.” HolidayIQ Traveller Yamin Watali shares, “I would describe Delhi as a combo of history and modern life. Delhi I think has the best food joints in country. Be it Mughlai, Continental, Chinese, South Indian. Some good places to eat are Karim's in Old Delhi, Punjabi by nature in Vasant kunj, Tai pan at Oberoi and Pind Balluchi. Delhi doesn't lag behind in street food. Be it parathas and jalebi of chandni chowk or chole bhature at bengali market.”

3The Rich Dal Bukhara
The Rich Dal Bukhara

Dal bukhara is a dish that comes close to dal makhani and was made famous by the ITC Maurya Hotel in New Delhi. Unlike dal makhani, dal bukhara is made only with whole urad lentils and not with rajma. The most important part is that dal bukhara is slow cooked overnight, for around 48 hours, on the tandoor.

HolidayIQ Traveller Divya K shares, “Food Options at ITC Maurya are extremely good. I have had a heavenly dining experience at Tian Rooftop and would recommend it to everyone - especially for a date night! Vikramjit Roy brings a delectable Menu to the table. Checkout his food experience at Linkedin and Zomato. Bukhara and Dum Pukht have won numerous awards and are well-known across the country. A must have at Dum Pukht is the kebabs and at Bukhara it's their Dal Makhani.”

4Splurge On Handicrafts Directly From Craftsmen At Dilli Haat
Splurge On Handicrafts Directly From Craftsmen At Dilli Haat

If you are looking for a culture-soaked experience, you have to visit Dilli Haat. A food plaza and a craft bazaar, this mela brings a flavour of ethnic India under one roof. Splurge on traditional handicrafts purchased directly from the craftsmen as the venue showcases wares from a thousands of artisans. This includes bamboo and cane from Assam, bidri work from Karnataka etc.

HolidayIQ Traveller Sabyasachi Rayc shares, “The need to give the traditional craftsmen a permanent market or Haat to showcase their crafts, gave birth to the Delhi Haat, opposite the INA Market in South Delhi. This was followed after a few years by a second such Haat in West Delhi at Pitampura. Both of them are open air complexes with semi-permanent stalls. The traditional artifacts are well complemented by the food from the various states of the country.”

5Escape Away From The City To The Garden Of Five Senses
Escape Away From The City To The Garden Of Five Senses

Escape the crowd of the city and head to the Garden of five senses. This is not an ordinary garden. There are special zones- the khas bagh that resembles a Mughal garden, the colour garden, the court of bamboo and the tactile area with rocks from the bank of Ganga.

HolidayIQ Traveller Sabyasachi Rayc from Delhi shares, “Inaugurated in 2003 this garden is located in Saidul-a-jab close to the Saket Metro Station. This garden is designed to give the visitor the pleasures of sight, smell, touch, hear and taste. For sight, smell and touch the garden built across a rocky terrain has beautifully laid out sections for various kinds of plants, herbs, trees and even sculptures. Regular musical concerts are held to give the ear its pleasures. As for taste check the restaurants for some delightful spread!”

My experience with Air India surpassed all expecta

I travelled to the US from Mumbai, with my mother, to spend the festive season together. My father followed subsequently. I am overwhelmed with my experience with Air India, which we had booked for. The return as well. It was a breathtaking experience and etched a memory for posterity.

Nova Scotia an amazing place!

East Coast of Canada, what a place! Moving on Cabot Trail at Cape Breton and Peaceful beaches of Prince Edwards Island were a real treat for eyes! A must visit for all tourists to Canada apart from Niagra of course!

Delhi Overview

Delhi, the capital of India, is located in north India, surrounded by Uttar Pradesh and Haryana on three sides, straddling the river Yamuna. Administratively, it is a Union Territory, called the National Capital Region, but it is also partially a state, having been given its own legislative assembly in 1991. In addition there are the closely linked satellite towns of Gurgaon and Faridabad in Haryana and NOIDA and Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh.   Contemporary Delhi includes all the sites that had been the capitals of North Indian empires for a thousand years from the many dynasties collectively called the Delhi Sultanate (1206-1526), to the Mughal Empire (1526-1857), to the British colonialists who made it their capital in 1912. It was declared independent India's capital in 1947.   Several monuments are evidence of this history. Among them: the Qutb Minar (12th-beginning of 13th century) and Humayun's Tomb (1570) both World Heritage Sites; the Mughal citadel Red Fort (1648); India's largest mosque, the Jama Masjid; the British-built India Gate and the planned and green area of British New Delhi, now holding political and bureaucratic residences, the Indian Parliament and President's House. In fact, the Archaeological Survey of India recognizes some 175 monuments in Delhi as heritage sites. Thus, Delhi often forms a visitor's Golden Triangle with Agra (200 kms away) and Jaipur (250 kms away), to which it is very well connected.   Delhi is also a shopper's hub with the centrally located Connaught Place market, South Extension, and many malls all over town, especially in Gurgaon. All big hospitality chains have hotels here, and restaurant and bars abound.   Delhi has the Indira Gandhi International Airport and is connected to various cities in India and the world. It is by and large thought of as a hot city and a summer visit, up to humid September, is best avoided.
