Explore New Delhi with a private guide, a city constructed by the British when they moved their capital from Calcutta in 1911. It was designed by British architects Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker and inaugurated in 1931. Begin at the circular Connaught Palace, now the shopping hub of modern Delhi before visiting the Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, the most holy Sikh Temple in Delhi. Continue to India Gate, a memorial to the many Indians who died fighting for the British Empire in the First World War. Drive down Rajpath (Kingsway) leading to the India Gate Memorial and the palatial Rashtrapati Bhavan, once home to the Viceroy, and now the President of India. You’ll see the main Parliament building on your right hand side. Drive south, and pass Lodi Gardens, set within 90 acres and containing tombs of Sayyid and Lodi rulers. Finally, end at Humayan’s Tomb, a pre-cursor to the Taj Mahal. If you have more time in Delhi, you can see the superb Lotus Temple or the Qutub Minar located to the south of New Delhi.
