If we have to define Delhi to you in just few words, we’d say its a cosmic amalgamation of dynamic culture, lively people and delectable food scene. This city has something for everyone. But today, lets unfold the places where Delhi-ites head over to on weekends to have a lovely time and basically chill. By Kumar Shree
1. Hauz Khas Village
You may think its over-hyped but the good-old Hauz Khas Village still remains one of the major crowd pullers of the state capital. Contoured with lush green landscape, lakes, old forts and a deer park, this place is a one-stop-shop for every kind of explorer. From bars to cafes, fashion outlets to spas, and from tattoo studios to stationary stalls – Hauz Khas Village is all that you need on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Or, a tipsy Friday night!
2. Delhi’s Events Scene
People in Delhi love events as much as the city loves to host them. Every month, or perhaps, every weekend, you can witness a plethora of cultural potpourri springing from different corners of the city. From the celebrated Grub Fest to Delhi’s book fair, and from Comic-Con to fashion weeks and more, you will never have a boring weekend in Delhi.
3. Akshardham Temple
Akshardham Temple invites people from all age groups. Echoing spirituality from every corner, this place houses more than 200 statues. Also, you can witness several exhibitions, take a boat ride, watch light-and-sound shows and etc. Visit this temple to have a weekend that will be etched in your memory for a long, long time.
4. Lodhi Garden
From having a picnic to just taking a solo walk by the gorgeous garden — Lodhi garden will never cease to take your breath away. Sit on a bench, grab a book and your evening will be sorted. If you are interested in photography, this is your designated heaven. Also, try participating in an early-morning yoga class, with ancient forts in the backdrop. Quite Instagram-worthy, don’t you think?
5. Watch A Play At Mandi House
Mandi House is the mecca for those who love and appreciate theatre and art. The Shri Ram Centre and the National School of Drama organise shows every weekend and they are always houseful. If you’re looking for a beautiful, easy-going evening and are an appreciator of art, you will definitely love a weekend trip to Mandi House. Keep in mind that you would need to book tickets in advance from the Sri Ram Centre or the National School of Drama. Post indulging and appreciating art, you can head to the numerous eateries and restaurants in Connaught Place and call it a perfect weekend.
