Breaking the Monday blues mid-stride is our National Holiday, the Republic Day, falling on Tuesday. While our nation catches the live telecast of the magnificence of the parade, many of us will be celebrating the day in person at Delhi. The esteemed French President is our chief guest this Republic day and he does not come alone. For the first time in the history of Republic Day parades, the chief guest will be accompanied by a marching contingent from his country which will be here to participate in our grand parade.
Celebrate this Republic Day with Fxkart. We bring to you the best foreign exchange rates this season and here is a mini exploration guide to Delhi for our foreigner guests.
The Republic Day Parade
For all our foreigner friends, here are a few things to look forward to on your visit this time.
The parade has a magnificent fleet of army, navy, air force, other paramilitary forces and a display of cultures from all our states showcasing India’s rich heritage. It starts from the Rashtrapati Bhavan and crosses India Gate on the Rajpath.
This year, in addition, after a long hiatus of 26 years we have the army dog parade, and for the first time ever a female police motorbike stunt show.
Our French friends will also be a part of the Republic Day parade and a contingent from France will march on the Rajpath too.
A taste of Delhi
Once you are done with the patriotic festivities, it’s time to get a piece of Delhi. There will not be enough time on your agenda to soak in all of Delhi. With monuments from the Mughal era to every shopaholic’s heaven in Dilli haat and Sarojini Nagar, Delhi’s got it all. Absorb the historical magnificence of the Qutub Minar, Red Fort and Humayun’s Tomb. True to its name, Delhi the metropolitan it is, has a multitude of places of worship to visit. The magnificent Jama Masjid, the grand Akshardham Temple, the beautiful Bahai Temple and the healing Gurudwara Bangla Sahib to name a few. In addition, you can check out the Mutiny Memorial and marvel at the scientific prowess of the makers of the Jantar Mantar.
Aside from being the veritable playground of the historian, Delhi has great places to shop in. From high fashion malls to our street shopping, you have it all. Places to check out include Dilli haat, Connaught Place and Sarojini Nagar. Dilli haat is truly Delhi’s heart, having a treasure of India’s cultural artifacts and a platter of cuisines to pick and enjoy from. We could go on and on about Delhi without the list getting exhausted.
