No matter how many times I go to Old Delhi, or lead others there, I am still always amazed at what a crazy place it can be. Don’t get me wrong, I love Old Delhi and find it to be an endlessly fascinating place to explore and photograph. However, if it is your first time or if you are unaware of some key cultural, religious, social or tourism issues, your experience can be less than enjoyable.
Here are few other key resources I would recommend before you visit:
Lonely Planet: This link is about New Delhi in general, but you will find info on Old Delhi as well.
Money to take their photo: This article by Matt Brandon is about paying for pictures, but he has some awesome cultural insights about India and other places as well, it’s a must read!
Finally, I lead individuals and groups on Photo Tours so if you are looking for someone who can help you explore Old Delhi, get in touch.
