Momos Mom Hand Momos, Satya Niketan Satya Niketan

Whenever I’m craving a taste of local Delhi, I head straight from my place to Satya Niketan near the luxurious Taj Palace Hotel. In just about 10 minutes, you’re surrounded by South Delhi’s youthful buzz. It’s a haven for foodies like me, with a myriad of cafes to choose from. I always find myself at ‘Mom Hand Momos’ — their momos with that fiery schezwan sauce are a city favorite. The vibe in Satya Niketan is electric, with over a hundred cafes packed into this lively student hub. It’s a must-visit for anyone wanting to experience Delhi’s culinary diversity.

Located in the heart of the city, The Imperial holds a special place in India’s history. It was at this hotel that the leading political figures like Jawaharlal Nehru, Lord Mountbatten, and Mahatma Gandhi often met to discuss the future of the country in a more informal and friendly setting. A stay at this property will take you back to the time of the British Raj in India. The corridors are crammed with art pieces that very nicely document the rich past of the country. Guest rooms have a colonial layout and a contemporary feel - and expect a garden or an atrium view from your room. There’s also a royal ballroom, an impressive state-of-the-art spa and salon, historic bars, and five distinct dining venues. English afternoon tea at the Atrium is legendary.

Firozeshah Rd Footpath in New Delhi

While you're staying here, there are a number of places you could visit. Begin with Connaught Place, which is filled with hundreds of retail chains, dining options, and boutiques. It also has the Museum of Illusions. Afterward, head to a historical landmark called Agrasen Ki Baoli. Parking could be tricky here, so I suggest you walk. When you have time, you could also pay a visit to my personal favorite — Gurdwara Bangla Sahib. While here, take this opportunity to learn about the Sikh philosophy. All of these are within a 20-minute walking distance from the hotel, so depending on the weather and your comfort, consider walking around wherever possible. Because New Delhi offers some of the most secure and well-developed roads in the city. Check out the pictures and see for yourself.

Indian Habitat Centre

Only around 2 km (1.6 mi) from this hotel, you can find the Indian Habitat Centre, a charming cultural center. The center hosts a range of regular events, including art exhibitions, live theatrical performances, and film screenings, making it perfect for art and theater enthusiasts. I have so far attended two editions of their Habitat International Film Festival, and I can tell you for sure that they curate outstanding lesser-known films from around the country and the world.

I am a full-time licensed tour guide living in Agra, India. I received my Regiinal Level Guide certificate in 2007 from the Ministry of Tourism now I have a Pan India license. Before I discovered the tourism industry, I worked in the law, medical and insurance fields. I have a Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in Biology and Organic Chemistry. After achieving my Masters of Science in Organic Chemistry, I went to law school. My passion for history and culture led me to my profession today. I still enjoy learning science. I use it to understand the healing power of plants: mainly herbs, fruits and vegetables. My hobbies include collecting postage stamps, coins, paper money, reading, music, and of course, gardening. I also love photography, which I have become very good at. Many tourists have enjoyed my personal sightseeing tours. I enjoy meeting people and showing them my world. My lifelong experiences here, combined with my studies, allow me to help people get to know the real India. If you enjoy learning about this way of life, I am the one to come to! I work mainly in Agra, but will create tours to places outside of the city. While my tours are mostly walking tours around the city, I can arrange for transportation as well. If you need accommodation services, I can provide that too. Traveling to India is not just a journey, but an experience!
