New Delhi

The political and financial capital of India is loud, foggy and seems to be bursting at the seams from the comings and goings of the 28 million people shoehorned into its metropolitan area. It can feel quite overwhelming to navigate the heavy traffic in Chandni Chowk. Those wishing to get a good photo of the temple Swaminarayan Akshardham or enjoy a peaceful hour in the Lodi Gardens are advised to get out of bed early.
