Lucknow is the capital of Uttar Pradesh. Lucknow has more Nawabi flavours, but interestingly the name “Lucknow” was first named after “Lakshman” who was a hero of the epic Ramayana, but due to some disputes it got changed to “Lakhanpur” and then finally, the name “Lucknow” was derived. Although Lucknow is an interesting place to reside when boredom strikes it’s time to go for a ride in a city such as Delhi. New Delhi is the capital of India. Despite being a turbulent city, it has its own charm and beauty. Delhi’s chaat, it’s talk, its people are a different flavour of India. So why wait? There is a vast number of Lucknow to Delhi flights fares which will take you to the “heart of India.”
So, here is a list of some of the places in Delhi which will tempt you to fly down to this city and have a blast.
Delhi has always been the centre of control right from the time of Mughals. It has an influence of diverse cultures and hence attracts tourists. First up are the government buildings. The SansadBhavan or Parliament of India is an outcome of British architecture and is a beautiful circular building. It was built by Sir Edward Lutyens and Herbert Baker in 1920s. Next up is the RashtrapatiBhavan which has a mix of Indian, Mughal and European styles. It was built by Governor-general of India and inaugurated in 1931.
The famous JantarMantar of Delhi is also a place of significant tourist attraction. It is an equinoctial sundial. In simple words, it is an instrument to measure the time of day when the declination of sun and other heavenly bodies are correctly half a second. It is an amazing sight to watch this scientific beauty.
When it comes to shopping, Delhi is the fashion hub. And Connaught place is considered as the largest commercial, financial business centre in Delhi. It is the centre for all the shopaholics and business people. A stroll in Connaught place may help you find something interesting to shop.
If Connaught place is for the modern shopping then, ChandniChowk has the desi or Indian touch. It was a bazaar planned by Shah Jahan for his daughter so that she could shop for anything in one place. It is India’s largest wholesale market and a must go place for the tourists.
QutabMinar is the tallest minaret in the world built with bricks. It was built by Qutab-Ud-Din Aibak who founded the Delhi Sultanate. It is a pattern of Afghanistan’s minaret of jam. It has five superposed tapering storeys and indeed is a beautiful piece of architecture.
When Delhi is mentioned, then it is associated with food too; and how can we leave behind the foodie’s destination in Delhi which is “ParantheWaliGalli” in ChandniChowk? This lane has 20 different parantha shops which are all strictly vegetarian but make one of the best paranthas, and sweet lassi served in Kulhars.
So, what are you waiting for? Just catch the next Lucknow to Delhi flight and get a glimpse of “DilwalokiNagri Delhi.”
