City Walk

Founded in 1988 after the worldwide success of Mira Neir’s film Salaam Bombay, which featured Indian street children, Salaam Balaak has been named one of the most effective NGOs in India. The daughter of a social worker, Neir began the organization to help some of the millions of runaway children who end up on the streets of cities like Mumbai and Delhi. Salaam means salute and Balaak is the spirit of the child. The organization began with 25 kids and three staffers; today its 145 employees assist 6,000 children. On the City Walk, children who have gone through the program lead visitors through the streets of Delhi and share their personal stories as well as the history of the organization. Proceeds fund Salaam Balaak. Contact the Indagare Bookings Team to arrange.

Humayun’s Tomb

This incredible tomb was the inspiration for the Taj Mahal, yet it has a more intimate feel thanks to its location in a leafy park. The architectural feat is constructed out of red sandstone and marble and decorated in ornate patterns. The top level affords views of the Tomb, Delhi and the surrounding gardens, which are a peaceful spot to escape to from the busy city.

National Museum

In the 1940s, a London museum curated an exhibition of Indian art from museums and collections throughout India. When it was time to send the exhibition home, it was decided to keep all the works together and display them in one museum in New Delhi. More items were added, and today the museum is home to over 2,000,000 artifacts.

Touring New Delhi

In 1911, Delhi became the capital of British India, and the viceroys were in need of a new city center to reflect this time. Edwin Lutyens, the designated architect, wanted the contemporary style to be unlike that of the Hindu or Muslim cultures, or in fact anything seen before, so he created a new look—a conglomeration of multiple architectural types. The city of wide boulevards and grand government buildings offers varying perspectives on Lutyens’s architecture. It is known for its formal parks, magnificent Parliament Buildings, the Rashtrapati Bhavan (the residence of the president of India) and India Gate, a memorial to the soldiers who fought in World War I. Don’t miss Qutb Minar, New Delhi’s earliest surviving Islamic monument, with a 236-foot tower, and Humayun’s Tomb, whose design elements influenced the Taj Mahal.

Touring Old Delhi

Pulsing with energy and color, Old Delhi is intersected by a maze of narrow lanes, with twists and turns between the buildings. Delhi was intentionally built in narrow alleyways so as to make the city difficult to invade. A bicycle rickshaw ride through the Old Bazaar area is a wonderful way to see the different areas, each of which sell—wholesale and retail—one specific type of product. For instance, the ‘trimmings’ area leads to the ‘sari’ area, which is followed by the ‘musical instruments’ area.

Visit the 17th-century Red Fort, a monument to the city in red sandstone, and the original home of the famously extravagant Peacock Throne. The Jama Masjid, with its tapering minarets and wonderful marble domes is not to be missed, along with Chandni Chowk square, one of the oldest and busiest markets of India.
