Named after Prince Arthur, 1st Duke of Connaught and Strathearn, construction work began in 1929 and was completed in 1933. It was designed by Robert Tor Russell. It was renamed in 1995 after former Prime Minister of India, Rajiv Gandhi.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Cathedral Church of the Redemption, Church Street, New Delhi 110001 India

Cathedral Church of the Redemption, also known as the Viceroy Church, is a church in New Delhi, India, that was built between 1927 and 1931. The church is located east of Parliament House and Rashtrapati Bhavan, formerly Viceroy House, which was used by then British Viceroy.

Duration: 30 minutes

Pass By: Jantar Mantar, Sansad Marg Parliament Street, New Delhi 110001 India

Jantar Mantar is located in the modern city of New Delhi. “Jantar Mantar” literally means “instruments for measuring the harmony of the heavens”. It consists of 13 architectural astronomy instruments. The site is one of five built by Maharaja Jai Singh II of Jaipur, from 1723 onwards, revising the calendar and astronomical tables. Jai Singh, born in 1688 into a royal Rajput family that ruled the regional kingdom, was born into an era of education that maintained a keen interest in astronomy. There is a plaque fixed on one of the structures in the Jantar Mantar observatory in New Delhi that was placed there in 1910 mistakenly dating the construction of the complex to the year 1710. Later research, though, suggests 1724 as the actual year of construction. Its height is 723 feet (220 m)

Stop At: India Gate, Rajpath Near Connaught Place New Delhi, New Delhi 110001 India

The India Gate (formerly known as the All India War Memorial) is a war memorial located astride the Rajpath, on the eastern edge of the "ceremonial axis" of New Delhi, formerly called Kingsway. It stands as a memorial to 84,000 soldiers of the British Indian Army who died between 1914 and 1921 in the First World War, in France, Flanders, Mesopotamia, Persia, East Africa, Gallipoli and elsewhere in the Near and the Far East, and the Third Anglo-Afghan War. 13,300 servicemen's names, including some soldiers and officers from the United Kingdom, are inscribed on the gate. Designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, the gate evokes the architectural style of the memorial arch such as the Arch of Constantine, in Rome, and is often compared to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, and the Gateway of India in Mumbai.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Rashtrapati Bhawan, President's Estate, New Delhi, Delhi, India

Rashtrapati Bhavan, home to the President of the world’s largest democracy, epitomizes India’s strength, democratic traditions and secular character.

Rashtrapati Bhavan was the creation of architects of exceptional imagination and masterfulness, Sir Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker. It was Sir Lutyens who conceptualized the H-shaped building, covering an area of 5 acres on a 330-acre estate. This mansion has a total of 340 rooms spread over four floors, 2.5 kilometres of corridors and 190 acres of garden area.

Painstaking efforts of thousands of labourers including masons, carpenters, artists, carvers, and cutters saw the completion of this masterwork in the year 1929. Originally built as the residence for the Viceroy of India, Viceroy's House as it was then called, has metamorphosed into today’s Rashtrapati Bhavan. From being a symbol of imperial domination and power, it is today emblematic of Indian democracy and its secular, plural and inclusive traditions.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Agrasen Ki Baoli - Leamigo, Hailey Road, K.G. Marg Block G,22 Connaught Place, New Delhi, Delhi 110001, New Delhi 110001 India

Agrasen Ki Baoli has existed in Delhi for ages, but it was only after Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma's movie PK, that the place gained national and international limelight. It was in Agrasen Ki Baoli that the character played by Aamir Khan takes shelter in, during the film. Ever since the number of tourists flocking to the place has increased manifolds. PK ended up becoming a boon for Agrasen Ki Baoli as it brought the place on the national map.

Agrasen Ki Baoli is the oldest monument in central Delhi and is, by far, one of the most preserved Baolis of the city. It is located near Connaught Place, close to Hailey Road, in Hailey Lane. It is also very close to other important sites of Delhi including the India Gate and the Jantar Mantar.
