Once again, Delhi celebrates Dilli Ke Pakwan, a festival which encompasses the full culinary, cultural and historical scope of this vibrant city as well as India as a whole. Replicas of the seven gates of Delhi (including Ajmeri Gate, Turkman Gate and India Gate) greet you as you enter the festival grounds. Many other landmarks are recreated, including Meena Bazaar and the Lotus temple.
The main attraction, of course, is the food. Mouth-watering paranthas, hot jalebis, mutton korma, chicken biryani, kababs, special chaats, pakoras and ice-candy are all waiting to be tasted. This festival is truly a foodie’s paradise. But don’t think that food is the sole attraction—from a kathak recital to classical, fusion and folk performances, a slew of events, including a puppetry show, have been scheduled to regale visitors. Adding to the psychedelic ambience is the kaleidoscope wall mural exhibit. Another unique attraction is the antique cars on display at the exhibit showcasing the growth of Delhi's transport from the horse-driven tonga to the Metro.
