Let's start the article by talking about the National capital, Delhi. Here I'll mention the most famous and beautiful places you can visit.

 

1. Chandni Chowk: Old Delhi has its own essence which has not changed since forever! So if you are planning to explore Delhi then old Delhi must be your first preference. The first and most striking thing about this place is how it differs from New Delhi which can handle traffic easily. But here everything is competing for space, cars, rickshaws, pedestrians or even animals. This is the oldest market of Delhi and you'll find a variety of fabrics, jewellery and other stuff at reasonable costs. If you are thinking that is it then it isn't! This market has not just amazing things but amazing food too. You can have blends of different blends of flavours too.

2. Red Fort: Visiting Old Delhi and not visiting Red Fort would be totally unfair.

Instead of red stones it is made with white marbles which showed the end of using red sandstone.
