Dive into Delhi with an evening trip through the heartbeat of the city!
Originally built as the capital of the Mughal Empire in 1639, Old Delhi is busy and chaotic, yet full of historic monuments such as the Red Fort, Fatepuri Masjid and the Sikh Temple. In addition to the historic sites, we will also visit several markets including Asia’s largest wholesale spice market, Khari Baoli. Old Delhi is nothing short of madness, with seemingly everyone in the city trying to get to the same places. Let us guide you through the chaos and you will truly get a sense of Delhi’s vivacity and why the “Walled City” is its heart.
Visit Khari Baoli and learn about the spices and chilies that various invaders of India brought to the country and which are now so prominent in Indian cuisine.
We don’t go inside as it is closed in the evening, but we think the best view is from outside where you can appreciate the imposing structure.
See the hustle and bustle of the busy markets and people all apparently trying to go to the same place at the same time!
Visit the beautiful Gurdwara Sis Ganj Sahib. Learn about Sikhism and see the communal kitchen where anybody is allowed to eat for free. The kitchen is completely volunteer run and if you would like to help out, you are more than welcome!
Wind your way up a narrow staircase and get a breath of fresh air as you take in the madness of Old Delhi from above.
Visit the capital’s oldest and most well known Jain Temple complex and learn about Jainism. (It is also home to the Jain Birds Hospital, a unique place where only vegetarian birds are treated!)
