Tips and itinerary for 1 day sightseeing in Delhi

Delhi is not the most popular tourist destination in India. There are only a few interesting tourist spots in Delhi, which are all relatively close to each other and therefore can easily be done in one day.

For a lot of travelers this little hill town overlooking Dharamsala feels like coming home. Loads of people call McLeod their home for a couple months per year.
