Take a rickshaw ride around old-world Delhi. The walled city of Shahjahanabad, built in the 17th century, was the capital of the Mughal Empire before the British Raj took over in 1858.
Today, you can soak up the sights and the cacophony from the open air as your local guide pedals you around buzzing historic lanes. Once lined with stately homes, elaborate mosques and immaculate gardens, today you’ll see long-forgotten mansions in a state of crumbling grandeur.
Stop off at the bazaars bursting with antique jewellery and colourful textiles piled high. Head to the vibrant street food stalls to graze on Indian-style vegetarian omelettes and spicy, crisp samosas. Ride past the opulent Jama Masjid, one of the largest mosques in India with a capacity of 25,000 people. You’ll also pass the Red Fort, a glorious sandstone and marble complex and the main residence of the Mughal dynasty emperors for nearly 200 years.
