Sightseeing Options for Travellers Boarding Connecting Flights from Delhi

Delhi, the capital city of India is known for its rich culture and flamboyant history. Travellers who have booked flights tickets with a stopover at Delhi’s IGI Airport and enough time at hand have a lot of options to ensure they are not spending their time at the waiting lounge.  They can choose from a variety of cultural and historical attractions not far from the airport.

History lovers waiting for their connecting flights at IGI can drive to Humayun Tomb located in the southern part of the city. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is the resting place of Mughal Emperor Humayun and defines the magnificence of Islamic architecture. Lush Char Bagh Gardens add a refreshing tinge to the peaceful surroundings. The complex also features other popular monuments such as Arab Sarai, Babur’s Tomb and Nila Gumbad. Eligible tourists can save money on tickets by availing student’s discount.

Qutub Minar, the tallest free standing structure in India is another worth-visiting site for travellers interested in exploring the rich Indian history. Like Humayun Tomb, this monument has also been designated as World Heritage Site. First ever mosque to be built in Delhi is Quwwat-ul-Islam which is located in the same complex. This is a must visit attraction for those who buy tickets aboard international flights arriving in India.

Travellers waiting for their flights at Delhi International Airport can drive to Kingdom of Dreams, which is just 30 minutes away from the airport, to experience the exquisiteness of diverse and enchanting culture of India. ‘Culture Gully’ in this world class facility features artificially created miniature representations of 14 Indian states and number of themed restaurants. Entry tickets can be obtained at the venue.
