- Delhi Eye, a state-of-the-art wheel, as tall as a 15-storey building, located at Kalindi Kunj, it promises a snapshot of monuments located as far as Qutub Minar to places like Akshardham Temple in the vicinity. For those who want to visit some of the capital's popular tourist attractions but are discouraged by heavy traffic, and hot and humid weather, here's one way of capturing a panoramic view of the city from one spot. Built on the lines of the London Eye and Singapore Flyer, this 45-m high giant wheel — called Delhi Eye — is housed in an amusement park in Kalindi Kunj. As tall as a 15-storey building, the state of the art wheel promises a snapshot of monuments located as far as Qutub Minar and Red Fort to places like Akshardham Temple, Lotus Temple and Humayun's Tomb in the vicinity apart from a bird's-eye view of Connaught Place — all in a matter of 20 minutes. For a ride in one of the wheel's 36 airconditioned cabins you will have to shell out about Rs 250. The luxurious cabins of the wheel are centrally airconditioned and are fitted with LCD screens. All the city's major landmarks can be seen from top. You can sit back and relax as the wheel virtually takes you on a Delhi tour.
