Later visit India Gate, a memorial to the Indian army soldiers who died in World War I, and drive past the Rashtrapati Bhawan (formerly the viceroy's residence) and the Parliament House. Also visit 12th century Qutab Minar, gracefully hand-carved for its entire height of 234ft, and the iron pillar, which has withstood the ravages of time and never rusted - even after 1500 years.
Later visit Akshardham or Swaminarayan Akshardham, the complex displays millennia of traditional Indian and Hindu culture, spirituality and architecture.
