Seeing Delhi by METRO

Jump to last reply

Just thought I would start a thread on the Delhi Metro, it's a great way to see Delhi and is very cheap as well. To any of you spending time in Delhi I would recommend that you use the METRO as an inexpensive and great way to get around the city.

I found this post on Indiamike which is another great site that was recommended to me by a few of you on Fodors all credit for this post goes to UDITNHE from Indiamike.

Delhi Sightseeing………how to see Delhi by the Metro

• Qutub Minar (2kms): Qutub Minar Metro Stn on the Yellow Line, then Auto rickshaw for 5mins

• Humayun’s Tomb (4Kms or 2kms): Either get off at Jor Bagh Stn on the Yellow Line and take an auto through Lodi Road OR get off on the Khan Market Stn or JLN Stadium Stn on the Violet Line and take an Auto or walk to Humayun’s Tomb.

• Safdarjung Tomb (100mtrs): Get off at the Jor Bagh Stn and walk towards the Lodi Road Red light and it is on your left on the red light itself.

• Lodi Garden (1kms): Get off at Jor Bagh Stn on the Yellow Line walk along the heavily tree covered Lodi Road and after the first red light you will see Lodi Garden on the left in front of Meteorological Departments Office Building. (After getting out of the Jor Bagh Station, if you are walking on a flyover, you are in the wrong direction. Go back to the Lodi Road Red light and turn right for Lodi Road)

• India Habitat Center (1.5kms): Get off at Jor Bagh Stn on the Yellow Line walk along the heavily tree covered Lodi Road and you will see Lodi Garden on the left in front of Meteorological Departments Office Building, cross both and IHC is on your right on the next red light. (After getting out of the Jor Bagh Station, if you are walking on a flyover, you are in the wrong direction. Go back to the Lodi Road Red light and turn right for Lodi Road)

• Hazrat Nizammudin Darga & Basti: It is right next to Humayun’s Tomb

• Akshardham Temple: Akshardhan Stn on the Blue Line

• Gandhi Smriti or Birla House, 5 Tees January Marg (500mtrs): Get off on the Race Course Stn on the Yellow Line and walk on the Aurangzeb Road till the Claridges Hotel. On the roundel take the left after Claridges and take the Tees January Marg and it’s the second Bungalow on your left.

• Chandni Chowk: Chandni Chowk Stn on the Yellow Line

• Red Fort (500mtrs): Get off Chandni Chowk Stn on the Yellow Line and get out on to Chandni Chowk and when you are standing facing the Gurudwara Sheeshganj, on the Fountain Square look on your left to see the Red Fort.

• Jama Masjid (800mtrs): Get off at Chawari Bazaar Stn on the Yellow Line get out the exit and ask for Jama Masjid. There are 2 exits and if you get off the wrong on and start walking you will find yourself in Chandni Chowk.

• India Gate (2kms): Get off at Central Secretarial Stn on the Yellow Line and walk on to Rajpath. On your left you will see India Gate in the distance. If you have Rail Bhavan on your left then turn around and walk towards Rajpath.

Take the left after the petrol pump and get on to Pandara Road. Once on Pandara Road, keep walking straight till you reach the India Gate outer circle and turn right to reach NGMA OR get off on the Central Secretarial Stn on the Yellow line, get to India Gate(as explained above) and cross it to find NGMA on your right side of the road.
