Delhi is huge, and unless you’re looking down from a flight window, it is almost impossible to catch a glimpse of the entire city in its entire splendor! The best views of Delhi’s old city can be captured from atop the Jama Masjid, which overlooks the Red Fort, the cobbled lanes, the chaotic bazaars and small houses of Old Delhi.
On the other hand, rooftop restaurants like Boheme and Gunpowder at Hauz Khas Village afford stunning views of the Hauz Khas lake at sunset. The revolving Parikrama restaurant at Connaught Place, the only one of its kind in Delhi, offers panoramic 360-degree views of Central Delhi, including Lutyen’s Delhi, the Yamuna River, the Jama Masjid, the Red Fort and the Birla Temple.
