Uttarakhand 2014 | Day 8 : Delhi

    our train from Haridwar.
    our ticket was supposed to end at Sarai Rohila Railway Station ( DEE ) in Delhi
    but we stopped a station earlier , the Old Delhi Railway Station ( a.k.a Delhi Junction )
    we planned to have Karim Biriyani at Chandni Chowk , Old Delhi.
    so we stopped at Delhi Junction Railway Station instead because it's nearer.
    took the train from Haridwar at 11.30pm , and arrived at Delhi at 8.30am

    Old Delhi Railway Station / Delhi Junction

    Chandni Chowk , Old Delhi.
    5 minutes auto rickshaw ride from Delhi Junction Railway Station

    a small alley into the entrance of Karim Hotel.
    Karim Hotel is located in Chandni Chowk , in front of
    gate no.1 of Jama' Masjid Delhi

    the famous Karim Hotel , famous for it's biriyani.
    a must visit whenever travelling to Delhi.
    the last time i came here was in 2010 ( click here )
    we arrived at Karim Hotel at around 10am.
    it too early , so biriyani has not been prepared yet untill 12.30pm
    we had Naan and mutton Nahari and Mutton Paya for breakfast.
    it was very very delicious!


    Mutton Nahari.
    the mutton Paya is equivalent to this , but instead of mutton meat ,
    bones are used. something like ' Gear Box ' in Malaysia.
    Naan costs rs6 ( RM0.30 ) per piece ,
    and Nahari costs Rs 125 ( RM6 ) , served in a small bowl.
    the legendary Karim's biriyani since 1913
    they used to serve food to the Indian royal family

    Gate No.1 Jama Masjid
    Largest mosque in India , built during the Mughal Dynasty

    Ajmeri Gate

    New Delhi Railway Station ( NDLS )
    NDLS and Old Delhi Railway Station are located near to each other.
    NDLS is the main station in Delhi , something like KL Sentral in Malaysia.

    Metro to the airport is located in a different building
    from the NDLS railway station.
    when travelling , mention ' Metro to airport ' to people / auto rickshaw ,
    and they'll directly bring you there.

    ticket from New Delhi Metro Station to Airport costs Rs150 one-way

    the token as ticket

    the metro station is very airport-friendly.
    even flight schedule is displayed at the station.

    the Metro to Delhi airport is the Yellow Line.
    the route goes directly to Terminal 3 New Delhi Airport ,
    something like ERL that goes directly from KL Sentral to KLIA.
    if we want to go to Terminal 1D ( domestic terminal ) , stop at
    Aero City station ( a station earlier than Airport station )
    and take cab / shuttle from there.

    racks to put luggage in the metro

    very spacious and comfortable.
    took around 15 -20 minutes to reach Delhi Airport from NDLS

    the super big new Terminal 3 Delhi International Airport

    free access at airport lounge for ICICI Bank Coral cardholder.
    at T3 , the Grid Bar is giving buffet for lunch.
    the meals are not as good as in Kingfisher Sports Lounge
    in Bangalore airport ( click here ) ,
    but i don't mind as long as its free.

    T3 Terminal

    big prayer room

    electric car to carry passengers to the departure gates.
    the airport is so big , signposts from the entrance to the gates are
    noted by walking time period instead of only showing directions.
    it took 15 minutes walk from entrance to my departure gate.
