Someone said once “If you heard a joke so many times that you forgot why it was so funny, and then read it again, believe me you will find something new”. Same case with traveler, if you travel a lot and you get bored from particular place then go for Delhi day tour again you will definitely find something new. I have been in Delhi so many times, but each time I visited here I amazed how I could forget this place. The tag line “Delhi Dil Valo Ki”, drag me to here each time. Delhi is union territory and capital of India, there is so many stories associated with Delhi.
Delhi, the city was once called “Walled City”. You would like to know there were five gates and they are still standing in the city, namely, Turkman Gate, Ajmeri Gate, Delhi Gate, Lahori Gate, and Kashmiri Gate and thanks to my local friend who guide me and share this wonderful fact.
India is known as “Land of Festivals”, and if you are in India and never been a part of the festivals then you had missed the real Indian culture and traditions. I was fortunate to be part of one of the famous “Diwali Festival”, it’s a major Indian festival known as “Festival of Lights”, such a nice view of light around you of Deep means Diya (Small pots made from clay), and I had utterly enjoyed the view of fireworks on sky.
Happiness is always in the small things, and I found it within the local streets and narrow lanes of majestic and mysterious city where the culture is reflects. A part of this Delhi is famous for monuments and temples.

Mughal architecture made of the red stone and evening sound and light show are special attractions. Dewaan-i-Khas (Hall of Private Audience) made of solid gold and studded with previous stones such as rubies, pearls and diamonds including the world’s largest, the Kohinoor.
