Delhi has been witnessing moderate to heavy rains for the last few days, and the city's residents are taking full advantage of this. Whether it's flocking to a monument for that perfect picture or visiting their favourite street food stall for mouth-watering food, Delhites are busy enjoying the late monsoon. Here are five places you should visit on a rainy day in the city.
If you are a street food fan, head to this historical market for some fantastic street food. Be it Aloo Chaat, Golgappa, Momos or Chhole-Bhature–you will get the best of all. Also, you can shop around Chandni Chowk since it has some excellent places to get inexpensive clothes and showpieces.
Officially known as "University Enclave", this is the place where colleges of Delhi University like Ramjas, Hansraj, and St. Stephens are located. As a place brimming with college students, North Campus is full of fantastic cafes and eateries that are pocket-friendly. You can also head to the nearby Kamla Nagar market for some shopping.
Majnu Ka Tila
Also known as "Delhi's little Tibet," this place becomes an absolute street food haven during rains. Whether its the Laphing (a popular Tibetan street food) or the piping hot Ramen noodles, Majnu Ka Tila is recommended for foodies. Also, if you are a sneakerhead, you will be delighted to see the vast collection of first copies of Air Jordans and Yeezys.
If you are a history buff, this is the place for you. You can roam around the complex without the sun hovering over you. As the monument and its surroundings turn green during the rains, it is also a great spot to click some amazing photos.
The tail of the ancient Aravalli Hills, the Delhi Ridge is often called the "lungs of Delhi." This area was declared a Reserve Forest in the 1900s and is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna native to the region. If you enjoy the company of nature, head to this place during the rains.
