Empowerment and Exploration: Discovering Delhi's Treasures during the Women’s Cricket League 2024

Published on: 5 March, 2024

When in Delhi for the women’s cricket league, a stay at The Oberoi, New Delhi is a must. One of the best places to stay in Delhi for tourists from around the world and India, our award winning luxury hotel is conveniently located just 20 minutes by car from Arun Jaitley stadium. Our concierge is available 24 hours a day to arrange private transport and help with ticketing for women’s cricket matches. The concierge is also highly knowledgeable about Delhi sightseeing places and historical sites in Delhi, and would be happy to customise an itinerary to suit your interests and time constraints.

Ours is amongst the very best hotels near Connaught Place, New Delhi. Located just 20 minutes by car from The Oberoi, New Delhi, Connaught Place, or CP as it is fondly known, offers a wealth of international and domestic brand shopping, as well as established restaurants, food joints and street food options. The circular layout, with a green grass area (“Central Park”) at its heart, is a showpiece of Edward Lutyens’ New Delhi design and one of the most notable examples of heritage architecture in the city. The huge Indian national flag waving atop a towering flagpole is a relatively new addition, having been hoisted for the first time in 2014. Some of the best places to stay in Delhi for tourists are located near Connaught Place, such as The Oberoi, New Delhi.

One of the most interesting and lesser known Delhi sightseeing places near Connaught Place is Agrasen ki Baoli. An ancient stepwell secreted behind the area’s modern skyscrapers, Agrasen ki Baoli is 60 metres long, 15 metres wide and has 108 steps down to the water. In recent times it was designated as a protected monument by the Archaeological Survey of India.

No visit to Delhi is complete without a tour of Old Delhi, maybe the oldest of historical sites in Delhi, with its bustling lanes, traditional markets and sprawling Red Fort. At the heart of Old Delhi lies Chandni Chowk, the Moonlight Square, off which branch labyrinthine alleys bursting with age-old outlets that sell everything from gold and silver jewellery to wedding fabrics, electronics, stationery and household goods.

Just minutes from Chandni Chowk, the Red Fort, or Lal Qila, is one of the most iconic Delhi sightseeing places. The Red Fort is a well preserved example of ancient Mughal architecture, constructed out of huge red sandstone blocks. It spans over 1 million square metres and has defensive walls of over 2 kilometres high.

Located close to hotels near Connaught Place, India Gate is a strikingly poignant tribute to those who died fighting on behalf of the British Empire in World War One (1914-1918). It is engraved with the names of 90,000 Indian soldiers and features a flame that is permanently lit in their memory.

India Gate stands at one end of Rajpath, the King’s Walk. Rashtrapati Bhavan, the President’s Residence, stands at the opposite end, like two bookends signposting moments in Indian history. Rajpath is also the venue for Indian Republic Day celebrations every 26th January. Intersecting Rajpath is Janpath, the People’s Way. Edward Lutyens planned the layout of New Delhi around these intersecting roads. Janpath is one of the most popular Delhi sightseeing places for domestic and international visitors due to its long line of market shops that sell unique items and interesting souvenirs at budget rates.

Visible from all rooms and suites on one side of The Oberoi, New Delhi, Humayun’s Tomb is said to have been the blueprint for the Taj Mahal and is has been recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1993. Constructed over 7 years in the mid-16th century, Humayun’s Tomb was built in tribute to the second Mughal Emperor of India by his widow and contains around 150 graves in total.

Jantar Mantar is one of the most famous historical sites in Delhi for its astronomy tools that date back to the early 18th century. Measuring 20 metres high and 35 metres long, the Samrat Yantra is considered to be the world’s largest sundial. There are also tools to measure the stars, the longest and shortest days, and the zodiac. Jantar Mantar is also a popular spot for peaceful protest.

To the south of the city, Qutab Minar is one of the most photographed historical sites in Delhi. The ancient minar (tower) is not open to the public to climb, but its seventy three metres of glowing red sandstone and white marble are Instagrammable souvenirs of a stay in Delhi.

Akshardham temple is a slightly further drive from central Delhi, but when done in a luxury vehicle from The Oberoi, New Delhi, offers the chance to sit back and relax in comfort. The temple complex is worth the drive. Spanning 100 acres, with a main monument constructed from 3,000 tonnes of stone, it also features 148 scaled elephants, a theatre, a hall of virtues and a boat ride through 10,000 years of India’s heritage. The architectural styles showcase a fusion of traditions from around India, to symbolise the timelessness of spirituality.

Whether it's pre-match cultural excursions or post-match relaxation, discover the best of Delhi while enjoying the luxurious facilities and impeccable service you will only find at Oberoi Hotels & Resorts.
