Delhi holidays

The Indian capital, is steeped in a glorious, but turbulent, history. In the pulsating old city, the mighty Mughal-built Red Fort and the vast Jama Masjid mosque are divided by Chandni Chowk’s teeming bazaars. New Delhi provides a fascinating contrast, with the grand Lutyens-designed government buildings, the majestic India Gate memorial, the thriving hub of Connaught Circus and broad tree-lined avenues, which give much of the city a park-like feel. Visitors should head for the gracefully preserved Humayun’s tomb, an early example of Mughal architecture, and the 13th-century red sandstone tower of Qutb Minar. Cox & Kings recommends a stay of at least 2 nights to visit the key sites. The city has an excellent collection of stylish top-end hotels and some small, yet charming hotels that offer excellent value.
