Explore Old Delhi on a city tour.
This morning, following a leisurely breakfast, take in the sights and sounds of Old Delhi with a visit to the magical old town. You will be picked up by the local guide for the day's excursion.
The introduction to the old city begins with a visit to the Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India. Situated on a mound in the heart of the erstwhile capital of the Mughals, this impressive red sand stone structure projects beautifully into the Old Delhi skyline with a courtyard capable of holding 25,000 devotees. Lady travellers could feel more of this country's culture as they would be handed over with gowns as a protocol to visit the mosque.
Get ready to hop on one of the most characteristic means of transport in India, the cycle rickshaw. Myriad colours, organized chaos, crowd, maze of narrow alleys, soothing fragrances, pungent smells, stray dogs and obviously the holy cow - all this and much more comes on the way as the cycle rickshaw skilfully meanders through the by lanes of the walled city of Shahjahanabad.
After having experienced all the hustle - bustle of the old city, switch over to the calm and serene Raj Ghat - the cremation site of Mahatma Gandhi. Raj Ghat with its sublime expanse of lush green trees affords a perfect ode to one of the greatest souls ever. It is bound to leave you with an after taste of inspiration. Drive past the Red Fort. Once the residence of the Mughal Kings until 1857, the Red Fort is a remarkable monument carved out of red sandstone, built at the pinnacle of their reign.
