Visit the Akshardham temple
I frequent temples way too often and it's only apt that one of India's best is on the top of my must-dos list. Built on the banks of the Yamuna, the Akshardham temple epitomises Hindu culture in all its grandeur and beauty. There's a brilliant light-and-sound presentation, a fascinating boat ride, a musical fountain that plays Vedic prayers, and sprawling lush-green gardens. Even if you aren't half as religious as I am, I'd strongly recommend a visit. Aakash Chopra
See the sights
Visit the Red Fort and Qutub Minar to view the excellence of Mughal architecture.If you are looking for spiritual peace, visit the Lotus temple, which is also famous for its marvellous architecture and heavenly beauty.

The Taj Mahal
Go to Agra to see the Taj Mahal. It's 200km, or four hours, away, but the roads are good. And everything you've heard about the Taj will not prepare you for the sight of it.
Walk in the Lodhi Gardens
This 90-acre green space in the heart of Delhi, is dotted with medieval ruins, beautiful walks and laughing picnickers and a smattering of bird life.

Walk by India Gate
A visit to Delhi is incomplete without a walk by this most iconic monument. It stands proudly in Central Delhi (5km from Connaught Place). Get there around sunset. Don't forget to try some ice-cream from the numerous vendors who set up shop near the monument.
