1st day : Humayun’s Tomb + Lodhi Garden + Hauz Khas Village + Qutub Minar
Humayun’s Tomb : to be visited in the late afternoon in preference when the sun is blazing the old stones. Beautiful tomb built on the orders of the widow of Mughal emperor Humayun. Located in the heart of a huge park, only birds can afford to break the silence of this place (where to eat : Karim’s Restaurant)
Lodhi Garden : a nice garden out of sight. A breath of fresh air in the middle of Delhi. Here stand the tombs built mainly under the Lodhi dynasty. Many people come here to do yoga or jogging (where to eat: Lodhi Garden Restaurant located next door).
Hauz Khas Village : an architectural and historical complex in South Delhi where there are several constructions such as madrasas, mosques and tombs. In this complex you can also find many bars, restaurants, night clubs, Indian art exhibition, etc. (the best of “where to eat” Naivedyam Restaurant).
Qutub Minar : to be visited in preference in the morning, before the place is overcrowded. A fantastic tower with 72m height built by Muslims as a victory tower (no restaurants nearby).
2nd day : Old Delhi (delhi by cycle) + Red Fort + Temple sikh (Gurudwara Sis Ganj)
