Connaught Place Travel Guide
Restaurants in Connaught Place
Once-stodgy Connaught Place got a helpful shot in the arm with the opening of this chic eatery—the joint project of chef Suvir Saran (from New York’s Devi) and fashion designer Rohit Bal (who did the rococo interiors, a fantasia of candelabra and gilt-edged mirrors, awash in chiaroscuro).
Things to do in Connaught Place
Built during the 1560s in honor of India’s second Moghul emperor, this magnificent monument is perhaps Delhi’s most awe-inspiring sight. Its architecture—with red sandstone arches and slender minarets topped by a soaring white marble dome—was, famously, the inspiration for the Taj Mahal.
