Autumn is a great time to visit Delhi, when Nehru Park, a large green space in the centre of the city, hosts the city’s annual jazz gala, showcasing both Indian bands and talent from abroad in front of an audience seated on grass. Not only is the festival free, but it is one of the only events that allows attendees to bring along their own foods and beverages.
Sometimes skipped over by travellers because of its daunting size and fast pace, Delhi is its own Indian universe: a city made up of seven historical establishments, a history defined by dramatic kings, exciting art (check out the best museums in town), enticing food options (you absolutely must eat at the top restaurants and delight in the local street food scene) and a cultural landscape that’s uniquely enticing.
Today, India’s capital is an amalgamation of the years that, combined with an ambitious young population and new subcultures, gives rise to a destination that will cater to one’s every craving. Attending the best events in Delhi is the ideal way to explore all of the city’s most exciting aspects: from its culinary ambitions to its musical feats and extraordinary bazaar offerings.
If you haven’t fallen in love with Delhi yet, you’re just about to.
