You may have heard the phrase Delhi hai Dil walo Ki several times until now. To a great extent, it aligns true with the oomph and feels that the capital city is all about! Whether it be the hospitality of its people, its culture to even its legends and chronicles, Delhi’s journey from an ancient to a modern-day metropolitan city is known globally and doesn’t fail to impress.
And even till today, in Delhi’s heart, in those ancient cracks where time and culture collide, there are several places not fully explored by a great many people. There are still a great number of hidden getaways in Delhi which even the regular tourists don’t know much about, and it is these lesser-known places which we are here to tell the tales of!
So, without any ado, let’s dive in and explore these lesser-known places in Delhi which could be your next destinations de voyage.
1. Majnu ka Tila: Tibetan Colony
This hidden spot is an interesting place to visit in Delhi called The Little Tibet. This is so as many refugees from Tibet live here; these all are the people who had followed their spiritual leader the great Dalai Lama into exile in India. Thus, a visit to Majnu ka Tila introduces you to a vivid display of the Tibetan culture as you get to witness their way of living. When there, try the local cafes or maybe buy a book or two about culture.
If you have never seen a stepwell before, then it is high time that you visit Agrasen ki Baoli. The old-world charm and the artsy vibes which this baoli exudes is just too much of an inspiration for any art lover, poet, writer or any artist, for that matter. For photographers, this small yet historic tourist spot is filled with great possibilities.
Situated near the Cannaught Place on Hailey Road which is near Diwanchand Imaging Centre, Agrasen ki Baoli is located right in the heart of Delhi like a memory of the past kept safely in its raw beauty.
