Delhi’s top attractions dominate the ancient monuments, mosques and forts. There is no doubt that they are mind-boggling, should go to places. But after seeing them, what next? To do these things in Delhi, you will get a very different and unique experience of the city!
Khari Baoli Road– Khari Baoli Road, adjacent to Fatehpuri Mosque on the western end of Chandni Chowk in old Delhi, is the largest wholesale masala market in Asia. Spices are connected to India from the west, and it is in the business from the 17th century! However, the Gadodiya market (which is on the south side of Khari Baoli and where there are many spice shops) was created by a wealthy local businessman in the 1920’s. You are being transported and sold to a heavy sack of spices.
Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah– Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah, instead of one of the world’s most famous Sufi saints, Nizamuddin Auliya, attracts Sufi devotees from all over the world. On Thursday evening, its courtyards emerge with soulful sound of live quavals (Sufi devotional songs) with traditional Indian instruments, which turn the audience into a trance. One of the families performing Quawals has been singing for hundreds of years.Nizamuddin Dargah is located in Nizamuddin West neighborhood of New Delhi, which is surrounded by a bustling market near Humayun’s tomb. Get there before sunset. If you are an alien then be prepared to walk through the street and face a large crowd, and the towts and beggars.Dress up conservative and you would like to take some time to cover your head (though it is not mandatory if you only enter the courtyard). Before ignoring shopkeepers, you need to take your shoes, which will insist on paying attention to the fee.
Walk into Delhi Streets– Learn about the underbelly of Delhi, because you are directed to visit the streets of Paharganj and surrounding areas of New Delhi Railway Station, who once lived and were working on the roads. The purpose of this unique journey, recommended as one of the best foot touring tours in Delhi, is to listen to the story of the children of Delhi’s road and to give a glimpse of their world through their eyes.This salute is run by the Child Trust, which is an organization that provides shelter, food and support to the children of the homeless street of the city. It is ignoring the tour, and sadly you are beating the heart and panic in the parts, because you will see the cruel side of the city. However, this is also inspirational as it can give children the right opportunity when given the opportunity. You also have to go to the free anchor community kitchen of a Sikh temple.
Delhi Folks Artist– Below the Shadipur Depot Bridge in West Delhi, there is a cottage called Kathpatti Colony. It is home to around 800 folk artists, many of whom have represented India in the show abroad. Magicians, acrobats, mime artists, puppet, joggers, folk singers, and traditional dancers are some artists living in the colony. Nevertheless, the time of the colony is limited.It is undergoing redevelopment and will be shifted to a temporary transit camp near artists while construction continues. Life is difficult for many artists who belong to lower castes. However, they bring happiness to many people through their work.
Delhi Slum Areas– Unfortunately, there are people living in sub-standard conditions in Delhi. However, this is not as frustrating as you would expect. To understand more about how people live there, it is possible to visit a slum roam tour in Delhi. You have to go to small scale industries, a temple, a family home and a school. This tour is designed to be inspirational and educational in nature, and a large percentage of the income is used to improve the community.
Delhi by Cycling – For a different experience of Delhi, go on the streets on the bicycle and immerse yourself in different colors, smell, sounds and tastes!However you have to wake up early! Tourism starts at 6.30 pm to avoid traffic.
Gurdwara Bangla Sahib– A prominent Sikh temple near Connaught Place, Atmospheric Gurdwara Bangla Sahib, is not a great place to relax for a while. There is a large kitchen where anchor (free meal for anyone who wants it) is ready. It is staffed by most volunteers, and you can go in and even help. About 10,000 meals are served every day, which requires a lot of cooking!
