Delhi - silent spaces and funky places

In the heart of Central Delhi, where half the city rushes to work and the other half lazes around in Cafés or tea-bars, Agrasen ki Baoli (step well) comes as a sweet surprise on a hot summer afternoon. It is a perfect place to steal a quiet moment from your busy sightseeing of Delhi.

If you get up early enough in the morning, you might like to check out the daily Laughing Yoga classes that take place here (and other locations around the city). Otherwise Lodhi Gardens offers a green respite from sightseeing in the city of Delhi. Spread over 90 acres, Lodhi Gardens is a serene oasis situated between Khan Market and Safdarjung's Tomb on Lodhi Road and has a restaurant where you can stop for lunch.

The National Gallery of Modern Art  is the leading Indian art gallery. Its collection of more than 14,000 works includes artists such as Thomas Daniell, Raja Ravi Verma, Abanindranath Tagore, Rabindranath Tagore, Gaganendranath Tagore, Nandalal Bose, Jamini Roy, Amrita Sher-Gil as well as a huge collection of Indian miniature artists. A private guide may be hired on request.
Opens daily from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Closed on Mondays and National Holidays.

If you have a limited time for sight seeing in Delhi then head out to Hauz Khas Village where you can shop for art and other funky stuff in a traffic free village amongst some pretty impressive ruins.
If you are sightseeing Delhi with Real-India, just ask your driver to take you to these places, he is well versed on keeping our customers satisified!
