For my trip to India, I will have a full day of free time after finishing an organised tour, any suggestions of what I could get up to, places to eat at, etc. in Delhi, in particular in the area of Karol Bagh? (it's where the hotel I'll be staying is located).
try these places - they a all in Karol Bagh
Ajmal Khan Road
Ajmal Khan Road in Karol Bagh once specialized in inexpensive ready-made garments, cotton yarn and embroidered garments. However, now, this road boasts of big fancy stores, international labels, along with all kinds Indian munchies and masalas (spices) are available here.
Arya Samaj Road
It is one of the best places to buy second hand books in Delhi.
The Bank Street in Karol Bagh is known for its numerous Jewelry shops. These shops specialize in jewelry for the bridal trousseau.
Shopping in Karol Bagh, Delhi is incomplete if you haven't been to the Ghaffar Market. There is not a single imported product in India that is not available here. From cosmetics to watches to cell phones to footwear, you will get anything and everything here. almost 8 years ago
You can take a short half an hour ride to the Pragati Maidan area - there you can have a look at Crafts museum (http://nationalcraftsmuseum.nic.in/) followed by a stroll at Old Fort which is nearby. (You can take Delhi metro train to go to that area. Just catch it from Karol Bagh and change at Rajiv chowk, get down at Pragati Maidan, avoid peak time until 10.30).
If you still have some more time, you can visit Dilli Haat near AIIMS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dilli_Haat) which is another 20 minutes by a metro train. almost 8 years ago
If you haven't been to the Lotus Temple, it was one of my favourite things in Delhi. Also, Akshadhram (I'm not sure if that's how it's spelled, you can Google it) is a new Hindu temple built in Delhi. It's absolutely beautiful and there is a lot to do there. about 7 years ago
