Culture of Delhi

Culture of DelhiDelhi comes as a merger of the modern lifestyles as well as the old traditions and values. On one hand, we can see the Old Delhi still living in the past to some an extent and still upholding the values of the past. While, on the other we see culture in New Delhi where people have become slaves of ostentations. There is the sound the Qawwalis of Nizamuddin Shrine, Gurbanis of Bangla Sahib and Aartis of Chattarpur Mandir. At the same time, one can hear the loud and blaring music of pubs and discotheques.

Still another aspect of the culture of Delhi is the numerous fairs and festivals celebrated in the city. The Chhat Puja of Bihar is celebrated here with as much festivity as the Durga Puja of Bengal. There is also no difference in the celebrations of the Muslim festival of Eid-ul-Fitr and the Punjabi festival of Lohri. It is interesting to note that the culture of Delhi also shows some influence of the people of Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Punjab, since these states border the capital city.

Humayun's Tomb DelhiDelhi's Famous Parks

Mughal Gardens : Ask anyone in Delhi what green is, and you might find a single answer to a world of beauty. The prestigious Mughal Gardens. Nestling at the rear of Rashtrapati Bhawan in the President's estate, the lush manicured gardens was laid out along traditional Mughal lines by a British horticulturalist. The garden affords, among other things, some exotic varieties of roses, found nowhere else in India.

Buddha Jayanti Park : This large park carpeting a major section of the Southern Ridge, west of Rajpath, commemorates Buddha's attainment of nirvana. While strolling amidst a romantic environment, tourists can enjoy the course of spiritual life of Buddha, including - of course - a Bodhi tree sapling brought from Sri Lanka.

Lodi Garden : At a stone's throw to the west of Humayun's Tomb and adjoining the India International Centre, lies the serene quarters of beautiful Lodhi Garden. This is a shady and popular retreat - you'll often see members of Delhi's expat community jogging here in the early morning. With its ponds, paved paths and shady trees, the park is also popular among young couples seeking a few quiet moments togetheraway from the prying eyes of the family. The garden also affords handsome tombs of the Sayyid and Lodi rulers with a design that eventually developed into the exquisite architecture of Taj Mahal.

Kalindi Kunj : Laid out on the plans of ambrosial Vrindavan garden of Mysore, the Kalindi Kunj is a nice place to spend your vacation evenings. Located near Okhla this garden provides a breathtaking sight with its colorful musical fountains that are lit up in the dusk. Brilliantly illuminated, the park offers a fairytale ambience to enjoy with your loved ones.

Food & Cuisine DelhiFood & Cuisine

Everyone in Delhi loves eating. When people in Bombay and Bangalore are either partying or drinking, Delhites are, you guessed it, eating. Walk into any wedding, party or social occasion and you will see huge tables groaning under an astonishing array of mouthwatering - and sometimes nose-watering too - dishes emanating exquisite aromas and fragrance. Usually, in the Delhi social scene, a perfunctory 'hello' is followed by the hostess indicating to the guest where the food has been laid; just what the guest had been too polite to ask himself but was, of course, dying to know.

An indifferent table is social suicide. On the other hand, feed a Delhiite well and you've got a friend for life; on a full stomach he will give you even unto half his kingdom. and what's more, being a thorough generous live-for-today Delhite, won't even regret it the morning after.

Perhaps that is why Delhi is the restaurant capital of India, just like Bombay and Bangalore are the discotheque and pub hubs respectively. The city is crawling with restaurants of all variety, nationality and vintage.
