Attractions and places North India

Delhi:Delhi is the capital of India.Delhi tourism offers the most vibrant and colourful aspects of Indian culture.There is an amazing range of activity from cultural walks, talks, theatre productions and art exhibitions to films by Indian and foreign directors. One can find an option at the Habitat

World at Lodhi Road as well as Siri Fort at Khel Gaon.Major Attactions of Delhi:

1. Red Fort:
Delhi’s most famous monument, the Red Fort, stands as a powerful reminder of the Mughal emperors who ruled India. Its walls, which stretch for over two kilometers (1.2 miles), were built in 1638 to keep out invaders. However, they failed to stop the fort being captured by the Sikhs and the British. To take your imagination back to the ancient era, a one hour sound and light show of the fort’s history is held each evening.

2.Jama Masjid:Jama Masjid is another marvelous treasure of the Old City, and is the largest mosque in India. Its courtyard can hold an incredible 25,000 devotees. The mosque took 13 years to build, and

was completed in 1650. A strenuous climb to the top of its southern tower will reward you with a stunning view across the rooftops of Delhi. Be sure to dress appropriately when visiting the mosque or you won’t be allowed in. This means covering your head, legs and shoulders. Attire is available there.

Chandni Chowk:Chandni Chowk, the main street of old Delhi, is a shocking contrast to the wide,

orderly streets of New Delhi. Cars, cycle rickshaws, hand-pulled carts, pedestrians, and animals all compete for space. It’s chaotic, crumbling and congested, but completely captivating as well.

3.Qutab Minar:Qutab Minar, the tallest brick minaret in the world, is an incredible example of early Indo–Islamic architecture. It was built in 1206, but the reason remains a mystery. Some believe that it was made to signify victory and the beginning of Muslim rule in India, while others say it was
used to call the faithful to prayer. The tower has five distinct stories, and is covered with

intricate carvings and verses from the holy Quran. There are also a number of other historic monuments on the site.
