Sight Seen : Golden Tringle Tour With Flight - Connaught Place

Delhi - Connaught Place

This confusing circular shopping district was named after George V/s uncle, the Duke of Connaught, and fashioned after the Palladian colonnades of Bath. Greying, whitewashed, colonadded streets radiate out from the central circle of Rajiv Chowk, with blocks G to N in the outer circle and A to F in the inner circle. Today they mainly harbour brash, largely interchangeable but popular bars, and international chainstores, plus a few good hotels and restaurants. Touts are rampant.
