The 10 best Instagram spots in Delhi

The capital Delhi is located in the north of India and delights tourists with impressive temples and historical buildings that reflect the country's past.

We have summarized the 10 most popular Instagram spots in the city for you below:

1. Agrasen Ki Baoli

This sight is a so-called step well, which is embedded in the ground. What once served as a water supply is now drained and is only under water during the monsoon season. Due to its symmetrical construction, Agrasen Ki Baoli offers a super backdrop for Instagram pictures.

2. Jantar Mantar

The open-air observatory Jantar Mantar, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is not to be missed: The former astronomical measuring instruments come in the most curious shapes and are freely accessible to visitors. The largest installation is a sundial with a height of 27 meters.

3. Haveli Dharampura

Hotel and photo location in one – the Haveli Dharampura has been a luxurious oasis in the middle of the hectic city since its restoration. The most popular motifs are the balconies in the inner courtyard, because the architecture of the five-star hotel creates a particularly romantic atmosphere.

4. Lodhi Art District

For urban art lovers, take a stroll through the Lodhi Art District. This artists’ district is teeming with photo opportunities. Artists from India and around the world display their colorful murals here.

5. Old Delhi Spice Market

The opening of the largest spice market in Asia dates back to the 17th century. The roofs of Kharli Baoli give you an authentic view of the hustle and bustle of the market.

Tip: For the perfect Instagram photo, get there at sunrise, before the place is overrun with people.

6. Safdarjung Mausoleum

This popular attraction is a memorial to the statesman Muhammad Muqim, who was honored by the Mughal emperors under the name “Safdarjung”. The tomb is an architectural masterpiece made of marble and sandstone with Arabic inscriptions on its facades.

7. AnnaMaya

The AnnaMaya restaurant is part of the Andaz Delhi hotel and has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. The modern interior and multicultural dishes inspire young people from all over the world.

8. Qutab Minar

South of Delhi is the Qutab Minar. This tower consists of five floors and is 72 meters high. Although it can no longer be climbed, it is worth a tour to admire the architecture of the building and the oldest mosque in India.

9. Red Fort

The Red Fort of Delhi is one of the most visited sights and served as an imperial residence in the era of the Mughal Empire. Although the building makes an impressive impression from the outside, the life behind the facade is even more interesting: Here you can expect chambers, roof pavilions, mosques and much more.

10. India Gate

Probably the most popular meeting place in the New Delhi district is India Gate. Inspired by the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, it was built as a monument to the soldiers and victims of the wars in the 20th century. On the lawn in front of the monument is always something going on – whether picnics, events or festivals, it is never boring here.
