Discover Delhi Free of Cost

You must have heard a lot that planning a vacation in India’s capital, Delhi, is going to pinch your pocket hard. But apart from the pub culture and fine dining dinner, the capital has a lot to offer you at a much affordable expense. Wander through the arches of India Gate, visit Jama Masjid and discover the religious personality inside you, explore the crannies of Hauz Khas Village and take a stroll over the sprawling green grass of Lodhi Gardens and entertain yourself without shelling much from your pocket.

The most loved public space of Delhi, India Gate remains surrounded by picnicking visitors, photographers, and ice-cream and chaat vendors. To get the best view of this British Architecture, plan a visit early in the morning during sunrise or in the evening during sunset. Wet your feet in the pool beside the site while paying tribute to the brave Indian soldiers who lost their lives during WW1.

The onion- shaped domes of Jama Masjid synchronizes pretty well with the red sandstone and white marbles. Without shelling a rupee you can enjoy the magnificent site of flocks of pigeons and the grandeur of this prettiest Mughal-era mosque in India. Reach up to the southern minaret of Jama Masjid and I am sure you will be taken aback by the bird’s eye view of the surrounding area.

The most affordable happening destination of Delhi happens to be Hauz Khas Village. Take the iron gate of the village and you will reach to another era of the Tughlaq Dynasty. The clear water reservoir along with the tomb of Feroz Shah Tuglaq is where you can use your camera the most. Walk across the garden located on the bank of the reservoir and if you want to fill your stomach, then there are a lot of street food joints much cheaper than those AC multi-cuisine dining.

One of the lesser known historical sites of Delhi is Lodhi Gardens. Located in Central Delhi, this sprawling green land is dotted with bridges, mosques and tombs built by the Sayyid and Lodhi Dynasties. You will come across several well- reserved pre- Mughal architectures like octagonal tombs of Muhamad Shah Sayyid and Sikandar Lodhi. A lot of joggers, strollers and photographers will come across you while you might get surprised to see the country’s politician walking by your side. So doesn’t it sound interesting to discover the pride of Indian history free of cost?

I am sure now you will come out of the notion of expensive Delhi trip and step in to check out for the economical site of India’s capital. It won’t leave you dishearten but will surprise you with the beauty you can ever unfold.
