Delhi’s most famous monument, the Red Fort, stands as a powerful reminder of the Mughal emperors who ruled India.

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. (*Red Fort remains closed on every Monday)

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.

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.
The Bahai Temple is commonly referred to as the Lotus Temple, as it’s shaped like a lotus flower. It’s particularly pretty at night when it’s attractively lit up.

The tranquil gardens and ponds surrounding the temple are also a great place for a relaxing picnic. (*Temple remains closed on every Monday)
