Most people who visit Delhi as tourists go to the usual touristy spots. From Qutub Minar to Red Fort (Laal Qila) to Humayun’s Tomb, Lotus Temple, India Gate and more, you’ve probably heard about it all and been there too.
The fun part about visiting Delhi is that when you actually start walking around, you come across so many secret spots that you would otherwise most likely have missed out.

So the next time you’re visiting this beautiful capital city, take some time out and head over to:
