Visit the India Gate, a memorial raised in honor of the Indian soldiers martyred during the Afghan war. Drive past the grand government buildings such as the Presidents House and Parliament House, all of which date back to the time of the British Raj.
Travel to the Laxmi Narayan Temple, also known as Birla Mandir, one of Delhi's major temples and a major tourist attraction. Built by the industrialist G.D. Birla in 1938, this beautiful temple is located to the west of Connaught Place.
After lunch, visit Akshardham Temple (closed on Mondays). This structure depicts great Indian culture and its architecture is simply immaculate.
