Red Fort, Gurudwara Sisganj Saheb, Gauri-Shankar temple, Jama Masjid, Jain temple are some points of interest but if you have great options for shopping as well. There's also a... More

We left Jama Masjid and had a rickshaw ride down to the local market. This was an interesting experience through heavy pedestrian and vehicular traffic but well worth doing for the experience. We visited a local spice stall and had a talk on the various spices used in local food / meals. We then had a rickshaw ride back to... More

This was part of our tour and neither my husband or I were were looking forward to it, so we asked the driver and guide to make it a quick visit which they did. Very busy, crowded, hectic, smelly and not really our thing.

We were never really interested in shopping here although I totally understand why folks would want to. Our tour guide recommended we do a bike rickshaw tour and it was an experience! Our ride took us through narrow lanes, hanging wires, tiny shops (serious fire hazard here people) and gave us a real taste of old Delhi. New Delhi was... More
