Itinerary

Ajmeri Gate

This is one of the several gates in the walled city of Delhi, built by mughal invadors. The gate stands neglected in general, signifying that there’s not much of tourists visiting this monument. But the gate has a lot of historical significance.Must visit place if you are a keen follower of the details of history of transition of domination from Mughal to British over.
Our guide will tell you the details.

Chawri Bazar

The next stop is Chawri Bazar where you can get metal, copper and paper products at a heavily discounted price. The market is always in action. Currently, there are more paper items available here than metal products. This place is most visited for dainty wedding cards and attractive backdrops. Cycling around the busy bazar is truly an unforgettable experience!

Fatehpuri Mosque

A very beautiful mosque with a long and interesting history Would you believe that the British auctioned it off and a Hindu person bought it and gifted it to the Muslims just to show the unity and love of the people of India. It is peaceful and serene and is definitely a working mosque with a Quranic school attached.

Khari Baoli

Next, be prepared to visit Khari Baoli, the largest spice market in Asia. It is literally a treasure trove of spices! It is exciting to look at myriad varieties of local and exotic spices in this market. There are so many traders and buyers here but the trade is carried out in a very systematic manner. There are shops that have been around for several generations now. Each spice shop here has a history of its own!

Digambar Jain Mandir from Chandni chowk

After Turkmaan Gate you can pedal your way to Digambar Jain Mandir. One of the oldest Jain Temples, The Shri Digambar Jain Lal Mandir is situated just opposite the Red Fort. Built during the Mughal Period, the temple is dedicated to Tirthankara Parshva. The temple is quite peaceful and the perfect place to connect to the Supreme Being. Talking about its architecture, the temple has been built out of red sand stone with detailed carvings and paintings in the chambers. You can get to know about the Jain religion and culture by purchasing books from the bookstore inside the complex of the temple.

Jama Masjid

The largest mosque in the country, the Jama Masjid in Old Delhi is quite impressive. It is Shah Jahan’s last architectural undertaking after having built the Taj Mahal and Red Fort. Jama Masjid is made out of sandstone and white marble. The splendid structure can be seen from a distance of 5 km. The mosque has a number of arches, domes, and high minarets.
The best time to visit the place is during the holy month of Ramazan as at that time there is a lot of buzz around the place. The mosque serves Iftar meals and the streets are filled with mouth-watering street foods.
Visitors can visit the mosque before 12 noon and between 2 to 4 PM. If you want to take part in the Namaz offerings, you need to visit the mosque between 4:30 PM and 5:30 PM. As you are on an early morning cycle tour, visiting the place before 8 AM is ideal to avoid the crowd.
