Delhi is also the seat of the Indian sovereign government. On a chilly winter’s evening, take a walk down the royal boulevard called the Rajpath, crossing the Parliament House and the Rashtrapati Bhawan (residence of the president) leading up to the India Gate. This arena has open lush gardens and makes for a perfect picnic spot. The Rajpath also hosts a Grand Republic Day parade on the 26th of January every year.
This city is clustered with cafes and eateries that offer a wide variety of cuisines to choose from, but the streets of Old Delhi or Chandni Chownk, serving deep-fried Jalebi’s and the famous parathas, make for a truly local dining experience.

Haridwar is home to innumerable saints and Yogis. From time immemorial, it has been the chosen place for the sanyasis (the celibate) to practice their penance and prayers. It is a pilgrimage spot for many devotees who come here with aspirations in their heart to take a holy dip in the Mother Ganges and be rid of their sins. The 'Har Ki Pauri’ is the bank where thousands of religious pilgrims gather during the festivities of the Great Kumbh Mela, which is held every 12 years.
Foreigners, too, flock in great numbers to Haridwar. If you’re looking to learn Yoga philosophy, Haridwar is the place where you will find countless discourses and sermons to soak up the ancient knowledge of our scriptures.
Every evening at sunset, the ceremonial Ganga Arti is performed. During this ritual, the Ghats (banks) come to life and contribute to a picturesque scenery with hundreds of floating diyas (lamps) and flowers offered to the Holy Ganges, along with saffron-clad monks offering musical hymns to the sacred river.
Haridwar is one of the prime spots in the spiritual paradigm of the Indian subcontinent. It is an ideal destination for the spiritual seeker, a place perfect for prayer, self-reflection, and self-introspection, and for many, the path of self-realization.
