Best free things to do in New Delhi?

I'm going to be in New Delhi next month and will be on a pretty tight budget. I'm looking for the best free and inexpensive things to check out! I love the outdoors, art, museums, you name it. Thanks!

    Delhi is divide in 2 parts Old Delhi & New Delhi and there are lots of places that attract tourists. Here is the list:- India Gate, Red Fort, Qutab Minar, Old Fort, Akshardham Temple, Jama Masjid, Jantar Mantar, Lotus Temple, Birla Mandir, Dilli Haat, Garden of Five Senses, Humayun's Tomb, Parliament House, Safdarjang Tomb & Lodi Tomb.

    You can visit Red Fort, Jama Masjid and Chandni Chowk market on the same day because these 3 places are in old Delhi and do not forget your camera to capture some crowded and historical places of old Delhi. India Gate is also near from old Delhi but you need to hire an Auto or a cheapest car rental service to reach there.

    And the other places like Qutab Minar, Akshardham Temple, Lotus Temple and etc are in different-different places. You can visit these places by Delhi metro and its cheap in cost.

    Go to Old Delhi for a walk, carry your camera, hat/ cap, sun tan lotion and loads of patience... its crowded or rather very crowded but its like a walk through the living museum - heritage in form of old temples, fort and Friday mosque (Jama Masjid), culture hub, street food, wholesale market... u get to see mini India in one place in one day.... you may also like to explore the street bazaar of Old Delhi by rickshaw ride, it will be quite an experience...

    Here are a few:

    Evening: visit India Gate & Connaught Place area. Loads of eating joins around that place. Visit Karim's for dinner - dinner should be under $20 (for 2 people)

    You can visit Akshardham Temple & Lotus Temple. Akshardham is best seen during the evening (reach there by 4pm and spend a few hours). They even have cultural programs which you can see.

    Another awesome place (my personal fav) is The Village Shop (Haus Khas, located in south Delhi). Its well connected by Metro so take the tube (its faster & way cheaper).

    Haus Khas has a deer park & a monument which dates back to 1300s. Evening well spent. Whats more - the place has a host of restaurants and pubs. I would recommend "Socials Offline" & have a Moscow Mule. Its one of the best in town.

    Have a great stay.

    Good to hear that you will be visiting my home tow. Its a big place and i do believe that you will enjoy the most. You have hire a day tour and they can take you to local monuments like Jantar Mantar, Tomb of Balban etc and temples where entrance fees is very minimal. If got a chance do go to Akshardham Temple, which you can reach via Delhi Metro which is a train ride and from airport it will be a hour away. if you are staying near to airport area then you can visit mall like Ambiance Mall, which is the biggest ball in Delhi NCR region and you can enjoy many national and international shops there for shopping and eating.In Gurgoan you can also visit to Kingdom of Dreams where you can see the Indian culture of different states under one roof.If you have time I will recommend to visit Taj Mahal which is a one day trip and you can leave in morning and come back in night if you want.I hope you will enjoy!
