What to expect
Learn about Delhi's heritage and history on this two hour walking tour. You first meet up with your English speaking at the Digambar Jain Lal Temple, the oldest and most well known of the Jain temples in Delhi. Head to Chandni Chowk, an old and bustling market located near the Old Delhi Railway Station, where you can watch merchants and shoppers buying a myriad of available wares. Then you'll visit one of the temples dedicated to Lord Shiva, where you can view the Ardhnarishwar, which refers to a half male and half female form. There are many shops that dot the city, popular among locals. Among them, you'll visit a famous jalebi shop, where you can see these delicious sugar-syrup soaked deep fried batter pretzels. You'll also see a central Baptist church, and walk through one of the lanes which has been famed for selling silvery jewelry, and sparkling silver can be seen everywhere. Apart from the Baptist Church, the religious diversity in Delhi is further emphasized by a visit to a Silkh temple, the Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib. You also visit the Golden Mosque, otherwise known as the Sunehri Masjid. Then you'll see the Town Hall, and walk among a lane of centuries old residences (called havelis), so you can fully appreciate old world architecture and design. This includes the havelis of one of the greatest Urdu poets of all time, Mirza Ghalib. You get plenty of time to walk through some of the famous bazaars, finding steel items, cooking pots, and so much more. Your tour concludes at Jama Masjid, one of the largest mosques in all of India.
