Wanted to explore the monuments of India? Now do it right in Delhi itself!
Are you one of those people who have the heart of an adventurer but are bogged down by a job and daily city life? Have you always wanted to explore India in all its magnificent splendour, but have given up on the dream? Well, it's time to reignite that dream because a new park in Delhi will bring the monumental splendour of many Indian states right to the National Capital. At Bharat Darshan Park, Punjabi Bagh, set to open next year, you can explore the vibrance of 17 states across India and the most iconic monuments.
What's the update?
The plan to construct a park that houses iconic monuments from across the country has been floating around for a while now. As of now, authorities are planning to have the park ready and open for tourists by the next Independence day.
But just where did they get such an idea, you may be wondering. The idea actually stems out of the other park, which houses replicas of the seven wonders of the world. Since those are made just from scrap, overseeing authorities were eager to have another, similar park, showcasing the monumental prowess of Indian states.
Okay, but what can I see here?
To summarise, a whole lot, actually. You can find replicas of major tourist spots from at least 17 states in the country, which is a marvellous feat in itself. A few of these will include Hyderabad’s Charminar, Gateway of India from Mumbai, Madhya Pradesh’s Sanchi Stupa and West Bengal’s Victoria Memorial, which are just the tip of the iceberg.
Once the park is open, a few other attractions will also be put in place here. There will be ethnic dresses on display from around the country and occasionally, traditional, colloquial forms of performing arts as well. The entire six acre area will be utilised for the park at Punjabi Bagh, so one can expect a whole lot.
Well folks, this park could be an amazing opportunity to get a feel of these monuments from around India and also get a bit of an essence of these cities themselves. If you haven't got the time to go out of the city, you can check out other monuments here and simulate through your adventurous passions.

Have you ever been running late to the airport because of the sheer number of bags you have? If your answer is yes, then IGI airport has got you covered. Now, in a new initiative by the DIAL (Delhi International Airport Ltd) you can have your stuff transported to the IGI airport directly from your place of stay.
Delhi International Airport Ltd., the operators of IGI airport have partnered up with a Bengaluru based company called CarterX. In fact, this facility is not limited to be availed by only those taking off from Delhi, it can also be used to get your luggage delivered to your residence when you touchdown at IGI.
What's the update?
In a bid to make travelling to and from IGI airport easier for passengers, DIAL has undertaken a partnership with CarterX to start a service where a commuter's luggage can be transported to and from the IGI airport directly from their place of residence. This, essentially, is a step towards making checking in to the airport a breeze.
Additionally, if you're short on time and are planning to take the direct metro link to the airport, this is a great way to ensure that you don't have to lug your stuff around.
To avail the service, you will have to pay a fee based on the number, weight and size of the bags. The fee will also take into account distance to and from the airport, meaning the prices are going to be dynamically triggered. At any rate, the base fare is ₹299, which goes up depending on the aforementioned factors. For every 5 kilograms over 20kgs, an additional ₹100 will be charged.
This is certainly one of the most passenger forward moves we have seen DIAL take. The IGI airport is at par with the best airports in the world and this is something that should take its rating all the way up. DIAL and CarterX have both stated that with this service, they aim to cover the entirety of Delhi, including neighbouring states- Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.
