The first spot of this Delhi 2 day tour package will be Raj Ghat, Gandhi memorial, which is a signal of spirit of India's national independence, as Gandhi was considered as the father of modern India.

Then, we will visit along the Rajpath, the east-west avenue in New Delhi. We will make stops at famous spots on the avenue, such as India Gate, India National Museum and passing by Parliament House. India Gate is the gate and landmark of India, looking exactly like the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. It is originally a war memorial of India.
