New Delhi has been inhabited for several millennia now, and has numerous beautifully preserved monuments to prove it—including two UNESCO World Heritage sites: Humayan’s Tomb and the Qutub Minar. If you find yourself burning out on history, lighten things up at the oddly educational Sulabh International Museum of Toilets, or refine your sun salutations at Sivananda Yoga.
The best way to get around is via black-and-yellow taxis or auto-rickshaws. Make sure to negotiate a price first. New Delhi is structured around two central promenades called the Rajpath (King’s Way) and the Janpath (Queen’s Way). The Rajpath stretches from the Rashtrapati Bhavan (the Viceroy’s House) in the center of the city to the India Gate, inspired by the Arc de Triomphe.
