New Delhi is the capital of the country and is situated in the northern part of the country, with Haryana and Uttar Pradesh acting as its immediate neighbours. The Yamuna River makes its presence felt as it flows through this region.

A visit to New Delhi is similar to visiting a modern city, but also has a rich heritage history. Every nook and corner of this city is filled with places that can lure the tourists from the Rashtrapati Bhavan, which is the mansion of the Indian President to the Mughal Garden which harbours some of the most beautiful flowers. This garden is open for tourists only during the month of February.

Other popular attractions of the city include the India Gate, which is situated in Central Delhi, near Rajpath, is an arch which is 42 m high was built in the memory of the martyr soldiers. This place turns into the most happening one during the night. The Red Fort, Humayun’s Tomb and Qutub Minar are the other historic landmarks located in this region. The Lotus Temple, which is located in the south Delhi is a beautiful structure built from marble and carved in the shape of a lotus; this is the perfect place for meditation. Places such as Chandni Chowk, Delhi Haat can also provide some fun for those looking out for varied shopping experiences.

New Delhi, being the principal town of the country, is well connected with each and every part of India, with a well-established system of railways, roadways and airways. The city also has the presence of Delhi Metro, through which the movement within the various parts of the city becomes much convenient. There are public buses, autos and taxis which can be used to commute within the city.

Rashtrapati Bhavan

Home to the President of the world’s largest democracy, Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi stands as a symbol of national strength. The nation’s most important democratic functions like the swearing-in ceremony of its elected leaders are carried out in these very grounds.

The Rashtrapati Bhavan has been witness to honour giving ceremonies of the country’s bravehearts and achievers, signing of historic pacts between India and other nations, of India’s independence and republic day ceremonies, and the hosting of many world leaders.

The Rashtrapati Bhavan is a true architectural masterpiece in its own right. The magnificent building spreads across 320 acres, including the splendid ‘Mughal Garden’ and the Rashtrapati Bhavan Museum. The design of the Rashtrapati Bhavan mainly imparts the Mughal architectural styles blended with classical and grand European signatures, credited to the British architects- Edwin Lutyen and Hebert Baker.

The building is also diversified with a number of other typically Indian motifs such as ornate Elephant statues on the outer wall or the main gate of the building with the ‘Jaipur column’. All in all, it is quite a visual treat to behold!

The building is open to visitors by three different segments or tour circuits. The first circuit comprises of the Main building and the Central Lawn. The second circuit houses the Rashtrapati Bhavan Museum Complex. In the same circuit, you can get a tour of the Clock Tower, the Stables, and the Garages.

The third circuit has the magnificent Mughal Garden and other ancillary gardens of the Rashtrapati Bhavan. Tourists can request a trip of each of the circuits separately on the days assigned for each segment respectively for daytime visits from 9 AM to 4 PM. 

There is much to take in and marvel at around the complex-- the intricate craftsmanship of carved marble statues, the sprawling Mughal Gardens featuring masterful landscaping concepts, the Clock Tower, and a myriad of presidential mementos preserved inside the Museum. Upon exit, you can explore the premier surroundings of this important historical site, often called as the ‘Lutyens Delhi’.

It was clean and comfortable and food was also good \n\nThe only problem i faced was the gap between travel buses and the trekking team.

Gurgaon has a lot of party hubs but this one stands out. With unlimited food, drinks, music, and dance, Smaash Cyberhub created a special place in my heart. Every New Year's party I spend somewhere near Gurgaon or Delhi. And this time also, I didn't find a better option than this. I took my friends to this place. Reasonable price for what they provided us. Great group of people having so much fun. Staff seemed very professional and lovely. Service was impeccable. I completely enjoyed it and recommending this place to those who love parties.
