Apart from the prime deity, the temple also features enthralling statues of the Goddess Mahishasurmardini, Lord Krishna, Lord Rama, Lord Ganesha, Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Hanuman, making the temple a storehouse of faith and religion in Delhi.
Your guide will introduce you to the rich heritage of the temple. Then, proceed towards the Qutub Minar – a minaret that forms a part of the Qutab complex, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The foundation stone of Qutub Minar was laid in 1199 CE by Qutbu'd-Din Aibak. Get to know the Mughal style of architecture as your guide helps you to understand the monuments and their significance.

Visit the Jama Masjid, India’s largest mosque and one of the last architectural works of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. Understand its history as your guide tells you the stories and legend of Delhi. Finally, no one leaves Old Delhi without a bite of its mouth-watering food. Go paratha hunting and devour the delectable flavors of Delhi.
