There’s no doubt that the National Capital, New Delhi is known for its history and architecture. From the Red Fort, Jama Masjid, Chandni Chowk to Rajghat, Lotus Temple, Humayun’s Tomb and the Lodhi Art District, history whispers through every street and colony, welcoming tourists with its majestic architectural marvels.

The serene gardens of the Qutub Minar complex, the tranquil lakes of the Garden of Five Senses, and the lush greenery of Nehru Park add to the city’s scenic charm. However, a woman recently stirred up a debate on social media by declaring ‘Delhi is boring’.

It all started when a woman stated on social media that Delhi is boring and there is nothing much to do in the National Capital.

“Delhi is so boring. (Most Indian cities maybe?) There’s no actual water bodies, no trails, no hikes, no nice safe walks, no scenic places to stroll along. Eating is all you can do. That is literally the only activity in Delhi. 

If you disagree, change my mind,” she tweeted on X (formerly known as Twitter).

Her tweet has sparked a debate online with netizens disagreeing with her and mentioned areas where she can spend time in the nature.

“Disagree: For Water bodies - purana kila lake boating, model town naini lake, rajghat lake with lots of ducks, some water bodies in North campus ridge. For Trails and hikes - North campus ridge, south campus ridge, tughlalabad fort. Nice safe walks - all gated colonies have safe walks, in public places - u can stroll in CP, all major markets like karol bagh, saket, model town 2, green Park, south ex market, khan market - easy stroll - but of course u have to bear the heat in summers and extreme cold in winters. Scenic places with a stroll - northern ridge, sunday rahagiri at CP, rajghat stroll, Japanese park in rohini, lodhi gardens, ashok vatika at ashok vihar, large dda parks at shalimar and pitampura,” shared a user.

Another user shared, “You can’t go to Shimla and look for a beach. Delhi is known for its history and architecture. Come here to take a walk through what makes us US. Mughal marvels to freedom struggle chronicles, you will see our evolution as a country here.”

“Kartavya path. Ashoka Road, shanti path great places to stroll. There are hikes around beautiful DDA Park in Lado Sarai. Hauz khas - water body, some bird sanctuaries next to the river in east Delhi. Lodhi garden, sundar nursery. Delhi has a lot, you seem focussed on eating 😄,” commented another user.
