Opt for the Heritage Tour by Delhi Metro and see how you can explore the historical side of the capital city in a quick and convenient way.

Civil Lines Metro Station, Mutiny Memorial

Built by the British way back in 1863, it was renamed as Ajitgarh by the Indian Government in 1972. Visit this place to soak up some historical flavour of Delhi. You can easily take a 5 minute walk from the metro to reach here.

Chandni Chowk Metro Station, Red Fort and Jama Masjid

The ever bustling Chandni Chowk Metro Station is the perfect getaway for visiting two of the world’s most famous heritage sites--Red Fort and Jama Masjid, some of the most popular places to visit in Delhi. Watch out for the red sandstone Diwan-i-Am with its painted marble canopy; the Khas Mahal (king’s quarters) with its intricate marble jaali, the Moti Masjid (1659), named for the pearl-like lustre of its marble, built by Aurangzeb. Visit the ASI Museum, which will show you Dara Shikoh’s calligraphy, Bahadur Shah Zafar’s clothes, letters that express political urgency, and life in paintings.

How can you miss the sinful parathas at the dhabas of Paranthewali Gali and mouth-watering non-veg delights at the Karim’s on your trip to Chandni Chowk? We suggest you to indulge in sinful street food delights and some serious shopping when you are here.

Enjoy a rickshaw ride from the metro to reach Jama Masjid and Red Fort; the journey will give you a real feel of Old Delhi.

Rajiv Chowk Metro Station, Jantar Mantar

Another historical gem of Delhi is Jantar Mantar, an 18th century observatory on Parliament Street built by Maharaja Jai Singh II of Jaipur. It is built entirely of red brick and rubble, and is inscribed with scale markings in order to take readings. Located very close to the Rajiv Chowk Metro Station, you can reach here by taking a pleasant 10 minute walk.

New Delhi’s famous colonial-era circular market (officially Rajiv Chowk, but more popularly called CP) is the city’s ultimate open-air mall. From designer labels to street shopping, from fast food chain to legendary bakeries like Wenger's, from high end restaurants to coffee houses, CP has everything under the sun.

Central Secretariat, Rashtrapati Bhavan and India Gate

How about taking a close look at the magnificent Rashtrapati Bhawan and the majestic India Gate? Well, we suggest you to get down at the Central Secretariat Metro Station and take a lovely stroll to these places.



The vast, green expanse around India Gate are just perfect for a lazy walk soaking up the ambiance or enjoying ice-cream on summer evenings or packing a picnic hamper on sunny winter days. While you can’t enter the premises of Rashtrapati Bhawan, you can see the two architects’ attempts to integrate Indian features in the elephants emerging from gates and pillar tops, elephants with incongruous cherubs at the main gate and even cobras.

Jor Bagh Metro Station, Safdarjung Tomb

Situated at a 10 minute walk from the Jor Bagh Metro Station, Safdarjung Tomb is unmistakably built in the tradition of the Taj — onion dome, garden and all! Directly across the length of Lodhi Road from Humayun’s Tomb, this is the tomb of Awadh’s Viceroy, built by his son Shuja-ud-Daulah in 1757-58.
