Hello Rachel and Sanjeev,


I wanted to write to tell you my clients loved their day trip. Everything went perfectly, as you said. They said the guide was extremely knowledgeable, the sights were beautiful, lunch was delicious, and all went as planned. They had a very good time.


A tiny thing that was mentioned that seemed a little strange was that beverages, including water, were extra at lunch. It would seem that non alcoholic beverages and water would be considered part of a meal.


And a VERY BIG thank you to the tour company. An older couple from the group left their passports on the bus. They were at the train station about to head back to Delhi and someone from the tour company found them and ran them to the train station. What a disaster that would have been as they were taking a flight at 4am late that night back home. So thank you, thank you , thank you. They asked that if I could get in touch with the tour company to again express their gratitude for their efforts to please do so!


Thank you for making our clients day trip a wonderful experience.


Sincerely,

Dawn Hackett

Delhi Sightseeing

 

The heart of India, i.e. Delhi, is studded with eye-catching monuments, temples & famous hubs. For checking them out, glance below:

 

Laxmi Narayan Temple: This famous Birla Mandir, the Hindu shrine, portrays Orissa style. This pilgrimage was shape up in 1938.

 

Qutub Minar: This towering World Heritage Site reflects the marvel of Afghan architecture. The 72.5 meter high symbol of victory was begun building in the last year of Twelfth century. Qutubuddin Aibak kickstarted its construction & his successor furnished it.

 

Bahai Temple (Lotus Temple): Appearing as a blooming lotus of concrete, this lotus temple was built atop Kalkaji Hill in 1987. Its presence marks Bahai faith that advocates for purity & equality among all religions.

 

India Gate A memorial of martyrs, India Gate, has so many names of the soldiers who sacrificed their lives during Afghan wars & World War I. A cenotaph, built of black marble, is in the mid. A rifle is erected on its barrel with an army man’s helmet. Amar Jawan Jyoti is lit nearby. Their inscribed names with gold on cenotaph’s face make the soldiers immortal. The lush green lawn beside it is a favourite hub for fun & delight lovers. It witnesses the procession of armymen & other citizen on Republic Day that passes through the Rajpath.

 

Parliament House: Call it either Sansad Bhavan or Parliament House, it’s a beautiful vision of the British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens & Sir Herbert Baker that came true in 1927. Now, it’s an epicenter of the Council of State, the Central Legislative Assembly & the Chamber of Princes.

 

Rashtrapati Bhavan: The mind blowing blend of European & Mughal/ Indian Styles was constructed in 1931 for the Governor General of India with the name the Viceregal Lodge. It was renamed in 1959 on the eve of Republic Day. Now, it is a home of President of India.

 

Red Fort: It epitomizes Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan’s love for architecture. It was built in 1639 when he switched his capital from Agra to Delhi. Originally named ‘Shahjahanabad’, it was ready to house the emperor after eight years. Huge blocks of red sandstone were patterned to come out as marvelous monument. It survived through large scale demolitions by diverse rulers. It’s pivotal place to unfurl India’s National flag by the hands of Prime Minister on every Independence Day.

 

Chandni Chowk: This place keeps the city alive with its market. As the annals say, it was built by Shah Jahan to gift his daughter the shopping place. Earlier, it had canals as its dividers but now, they have been closed. The oldest market has become popular as the Asia’s largest whole sale market & the busiest place. It carries a unique harmony in its cultural heritage & monuments, like mosque of Delhi Jama Masjid in the vicinity, Sis Ganj Gurudwara, Gauri Shankar Mandir, Jain Mandir and a lot of small temples.

 

Jama Masjid : The most ancient mosque & beautiful craft work of Mughals, Jama Masjid was called as ‘Masjid-i-Jahan Numa’. Following the directions of Emperor Shah Jahan, it was completed in 1656.

 

Rajghat:An elevated black marble memorial ‘Rajghat’ makes the sacrifice & lessons of non-violence & truth immortal here. It is the very place where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated.

 

Humayun's Tomb: The widow of Humayun built this monument in 16th century. Queen Haji Begum ordered to build the replica of the Taj Mahal of Agra. Now, it’s a part of World Heritage.
