The best things to do in New Delhi

There is an endless list of stuff to do in New Delhi, which is one of the oldest cities in the world and is home to some of Indian's most impressive landmarks. It's a city full of magic that mixes extreme poverty in its streets with grandeur in its architecture. There are many historical, cultural, and artistic attractions in New Delhi.

One of the most impressive places to visit in New Delhi is Humayun's Tomb, which is a complex of buildings of Mughal architecture comprising the main tomb of Emperor Humayun and other tombs and mosques. In 1993 the complex was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

India Gate is a memorial built by architect Edwin Lutyens to commemorate the Indian soldiers who died in World War II and in the Afghan War of 1919. It's one of the many New Delhi attractions receiving thousands of visitors daily, but it's also important to its inhabitants.

Another one of things to do in New Delhi is visit the Qutab Minar, the tallest brick minaret in the world and an important example of Islamic art. The Jama Masjid, or Friday Mosque, is one of the many other things to see in New Delhi. It's one of the largest mosques in India and the main center of worship for Delhi's Muslims. It's located outside Fort Red. We can't forget to mention that one of the most important historical figures linked to this city is Mahatma Gandhi -- Birla House or Birla Bhavan, the house in which he died; a visit here should be on the top of your list of New Delhi activities.
