Visit Connaught Place

 A trip to the national capital would be incomplete without a tour of the famous Connaught Place. Fondly known as C.P, the shopping area is a paradise for shopaholics and food lovers. It is one big scene of brands, retail outlets, eating joints and hang-out options. The heart of New Delhi with its colonial British-beat suits every local and tourist, business and leisure traveller. Ever since its establishment, the market has been one of the largest of its kind in India. The horseshoe-shaped market was thought to be a sign of good fortune for both shopkeepers and shoppers.
