Jama Masjid: Being one of the country’s major mosques, Jama Masjid has always served as the prayer ground for Muslims since the Mughal era. The sight of thousand heads praying together on Eid is simply spectacular and most-popular among the photography community.

The Delhi market Chandni Chowk was designed by Shah Jahan’s beloved daughter Jahanara Begum and populated by then-wealthy families.
Raj Ghat: This is the resting place of Mahatma Gandhi, constructed out of black marble beside the Yamuna River. The site is actually the cremation ground of India’s Father of Nation who was assassinated in 1948. On every Friday, people visit here to pay respect through a dedicatory ritual.

Delhi Rashtrapati Bhavan (President’s House): Designed by Sir Edwin Landseer Lutyens, the Presidential Palace was originally constructed as the official residence of the Viceroy during colonial rule. It was after the independence of India, it started serving as the authorized residence of the President of India.
Humayun’s Tomb: The now UNESCO Heritage site, the mausoleum of Humayun took 9 years to complete its construction. And, just like the Taj Mahal, it was an ode from a lover to her partner. Since it was Humayun’s beloved wife, Haji Begum (then widow of Humayun) who regulated its construction.
