India Gate

The India Gate was built to commemorate the Indian and British soldiers who died in World War 1, and those who fell in the Third Afghan War. An eternal flame, “Amar Jawan Jyoti” burns in memory of those who died in the 1971 Indo-Pakistan war.

Around India Gate are the stately homes of Indian princes, including Hyderabad House where many official state banquets are held.

Purana Qila

Purana Qila (“Old Fort”) stands on an ancient mound. It is the site where Humayun, the second Mughal emperor, began construction of his city, Dinpanah.

The site has been continuously occupied since 1000 B.C. and offers a full day’s worth of sightseeing and education about Delhi’s rich history.

Rashtrapati Bhavan

Designed as the focal point of New Delhi during British rule, today this palace is the President of India’s official residence. For early risers, the changing of the guard ceremony occurs at 6.30am as weather permits. The nearby Mughal Gardens are also worth exploring.
