Amritsar, the land of the magnificent ‘Golden Temple’ that attracts a huge number of tourists from all over the world. I was completely soaked in its grandiosity. This city comprises of delectable cuisine and holds a rich historical background. I was on my long tour, busy in exploring Amritsar and suddenly came up with plans of visiting Delhi. Moreover, getting around the city of Amritsar is simply fulfilled by a number of auto rickshaws, these are considered cheap and one of the favourable way of touring around the city. A day in this typical city starts with prayers in the huge Gurudwaras. This beautiful place is a major cultural and spiritual centre of the Sikhs. One of the best times to visit Amritsar to know more about their culture is during the festive occasion of Baisakhi. It is during Baisakhi that the some of the best and finest food is served at all local food joints here.
Since Delhi can be easily travelled by bus from Amritsar, my friends came up with the ideal choice of visiting the capital city of India. It was a 9 hours bus journey, but there was no hassles as we booked bus tickets online from redbus.in . Considering our quick plan, we did not get much of choice and booked a PEPSU AC bus. We boarded the bus around 10pm and reached Delhi ISBT Kashmiri Gate at 7:15am. It was a comfortable overnight bus journey! Our group of four friends enjoyed travelling by bus!
After experiencing Amritsar, it was time for Delhi. After all, it was the first time we were visiting Delhi. We were excited to sight the medieval landmarks, colonial-era buildings and town planning, bustling lanes, dusty bazaars, with modern touch of trendy bars and shops.
I have heard that Delhi is well known for its gastronomic pleasure and a shopper’s delight. In short, there is numerous things to see and do in Delhi, and many reasons to love the city. The best thing about the city is that it is well allied with a great road system that enhances busways. A few of the attractions in Delhi that was included in our travel list were Lal Qila or Red Fort, Qutb Minar, Lotus Temple and Humayun’s Tomb. On your trip to Delhi you will realise that Delhi has everything from huge shopping malls to ancient monuments. You will require several days to explore the whole of Delhi and I would recommend you to allot the maximum days for this beautiful place. The city has practically two sides to it one is the Old Delhi and the other side of it is New Delhi. Old Delhi features Mughal style narrow lanes and structures and the newer part of Delhi is bustling with rapid infrastructure development. One of the best places to visit if you are looking for some time with nature is the Lodi Gardens. The plush greenery is quite pleasing to the eyes. The best time to visit this garden is early in the morning when there are little or no visitors.
