Delhi’s mini Tibet, Majnu ka Tila, is nothing short of a secret treasure buried amongst the numerous undiscovered streets of Delhi. Prior to being a Tibetan settlement, Majnu ka Tila was a mound of great significance - it served as the meeting ground for a local Iranian Sufi mystic, Abdulla, nicknamed Majnu and the Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak, during Sikhander Lodhi's reign over the magnificent Delhi Sultanate. Today it is one of the oldest existing Sikh shrines in Delhi which houses the famous Gurdwara Majnu ka Tila. Enjoy the walk through the market in Majnu Ka Tila which is a destination to several remarkable restaurants that serve lip smacking Thukpas, Chilly Chicken and Honey Chilly Potatoes. Choose from tempting desserts like Apple Strudels, Cheese Cakes, Marble Cakes and do not miss the diverse variety of drinks, from chai to Bhoje Ja or Tibetan Butter Tea!
