111 Places in New Delhi

That You Shouldn't Miss

GUIDE

This unusual guidebook invites readers on an adventure beyond the well-mapped and best-known landmarks to explore New Delhi’s most hidden pleasures and unravel its most shrouded mysteries. Walk the byzantine lanes of Old Delhi, offer alcohol to a god, savor a biryani made by the emperors’ cooks, meet the sitar maker to the Beatles, visit India’s oldest toy shop, and gaze upon the abandoned statue of a legendary queen. From tales of perfumers, emperors, and quaint local characters to bustling streets, legend-filled ruins, and ever-changing landscapes, discover the true essence of one of the most fascinating and evolving cities on the planet.
