Why visit Delhi?

Discover an ancient culture

Indian culture is over 5,000 years old and Delhi makes the perfect base from which to explore this ancient culture.

Delhi has been built and destroyed seven times and has a long and fascinating history. Exploring the city is a hugely rewarding experience, as you discover the diverse cultural elements that have been absorbed into the daily life of the city. For these reasons, Delhi makes a fantastic choice for a general and cultural or religious studies school trip.

Many world-famous monuments can be found in the city, such as the Red Fort, India Gate and Humayun’s Tomb. And, of course, no school trip to India would be complete without visiting the Taj Mahal, which is generally considered the finest example of Mughal architecture.

Explore the birthplace of world religions

India is the birthplace of four of the world’s major religions – Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism. On a religious studies school trip to Delhi, your group will be able to explore their history and their place in modern India.

You’ll visit the Hindu Lakshminarayan Temple, also known as Birla Mandir, which was built in 1939 and inaugurated by Mahatma Gandhi on the condition that all castes were able to worship here. One of the biggest Hindu temples in Delhi, the temple is dedicated to Lakshminarayan, better known as Vishnu with his consort, the goddess Lakshmi. There are also side temples dedicated to Krishna, Shiva and Buddha.

You’ll also visit the Jama Masjid, one of the largest mosques in India. Built by Shah Jahan in the 17th century, this mosque was the place of worship for the Mughal Emperors until the fall of the empire in 1857.

At the Buddha Jayanti Park, founded on the 2500th anniversary of Buddha’s Enlightenment, your group will see a sapling of the original Bodhi tree under which Buddha obtained Nirvana.

And at the iconic Lotus Temple in Delhi, you can learn more about one of the world’s newer faiths, the Bahá’í Faith.

Give something back
