Photo Essay: A Short Walk in Connaught Place

[Pictures by Mayank Austen Soofi. They cannot be used without his permission.]

The official name of Connaught Place is Rajiv Chowk, named after India's late Prime Minister. However, it is usually called CP by Delhi Wallas. Its colonial design, built by the British masters, was modeled after the Royal Crescent in Bath - an English town known for its most famous resident Jane Austen. A premier shopping and office district, right in the heart of Delhi, Connaught Place is a necessary tourist destination.
