Go to a museum
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.
Go on a food walk
Food critic Rahul Verma conducts some. Or there are a number of Delhi Heritage Walks you could take
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.

More in Delhi
Nirula's is a Delhi institution, the first place to offer fast food in the city. Their hot-chocolate fudge is recommended for anyone with a sweet tooth.
Shop at Dilli Haat
If you're in the mood to try different Indian cuisines and experience the cultures of the different states of the country, Dilli Haat is the place to go. Near one of the city's busiest locations (near AIIMS hospital), it provides a sampling of food, crafts and more, from all over India. You can park nearby, buy a ticket (Rs 20 when I last went) and go in. Put your bargaining skills to good use and shop for clothes or artefacts before heading towards the food. Aakash Chopra
Tips for Travellers
My sincere advice to all my friends who are coming to Delhi is to use the Metro as much as they can. It will help you save huge amounts on taxis and auto-rickshaws. With the saved money they can enjoy the traditional and delicious food of the city. You will be pleased to know that the Metro covers most parts of Delhi.
