 Holy Places

Jama Masjid in the heart of old Delhi, a day at Akshardham Temple, langar at Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, a Qawwali night at Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah, Iskcon Hare Krishna Temple and the beautifully built Lotus Temple are some sacred places that one can visit over weekend. Though they are not that far from each other but Delhi traffic won’t let you cover all in a day. These places are peaceful enough to calm your mind.

 Indian Mountaineering Foundation

It is one of the most adventurous things to do in Delhi to make your day super exciting. It’s not about body weight, exercise, or muscle, but more about grit, strength, and will. The artificial rock climbing wall will be a good exercise for both mind and body.
