While many tourists in New Delhi will visit the same sights and have a similar experience, adventure travellers can get the most out of the city by taking their time to discover its hidden gems.
This is according to Sam Miller, who commented that the city has "a gently addictive quality and deserves to be explored slowly".
Writing for the Observer, Mr Miller noted that any independent travellers with an interest in history and architecture will be spoiled when they visit the Indian capital.
He noted that the city is home to a vast array of interesting ruins, buildings, forts and mosques, with many rarely visited by foreigners.
Mr Miller suggested that people who want to head off the beaten track should seek out Agarsen's Baoli - a "superb 14th-century step well" - which is located less than one kilometre from Connaught Place.
He also advised travellers to wander around South Delhi which is "a cornucopia of minor ruins".
Just two of India's 22 Unesco World Heritage-listed sites can be found in Delhi - Humayun's Tomb and Qutb Minar and its monuments.
