NEW LOOK - Connaught Place

23rd Jan 2011, New Delhi

First part of series covering Lutyens' Delhi

Delhi has its own charm with a heritage going back to centuries. At the heart of the city lies one of the oldest setup of the colonial India – Connaught Place (CP). With hoards of retails outlets, restaurant, business center it is the epicenter of Delhi’s business.

Its surroundings occupy a place of pride amongst the heritage structures of the city. It was developed as a showpiece of Lutyens' Delhi featuring a Central Business District. Named after the Duke of Connaught, the construction work was started in 1929 and completed in 1933. It was renamed as the Rajeev Chowk after the late Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.

CP recently got a facelift thanks to the Common Wealth Games (CWG’2010). The new look has further enhanced its charm. Roaming around CP is always a fun and is a must visit place if you are in Delhi.
