Offbeat New Delhi - the Top 10 must do list



Description:

Your umpteenth time in New Delhi? Seen it all? Done it all? Not quite looking forward to the India Gate, Humayun Tomb, Qutub Minar, Red Fort circuit?

We understand.

That's why, to perk up your jaded senses, we have come up with our Top 10 Offbeat things to do in New Delhi.

From a never-inhabited fort to an ancient step-well. From an imperial memorial to a mystic saint. From a haunted jail to a meandering maze...each is a prescription mood elevator for the depressed traveler.

So, go ahead. Get on to the track not usually taken. And tick off the numbers. As for the busload of tourists heading the other way, wave at them. One day, they will also follow in your footsteps...

Day 1 - New Delhi


The sequencing of destinations has been done geographically and not in terms of any ranking. Tughlaqabad fort is the southernmost and we move north from there. You can, of course, do it the other way round. And start from the Coronation Memorial.
