We keep on highlighting different places of interests in the capital and make people aware of hundreds of specialities out there. Sometimes it’s the mouth-watering food and at times the shopper stops. But this time we decided to tread an odd track!
We followed all those trails which lead to some of the most crazy places in the city and here's what we found!
Take a break from the crowded Saket & HKV lanes, and take a stroll to where you were a decade ago. Britannia Factory used to be one of the best school-picnic destinations in the city! Seeing all your favourite biscuits getting prepared and inhaling that mouthwatering aroma in the factory premises will give you a happy high! Make sure you go with a large group and take the necessary permissions before-hand. Happy nostalgic tripping!

Akin to the famous London Eye, we have a cute, compact version in saadi Dilli called Delhi Eye. This Ferris wheel has 36 air conditioned capsules, each carrying a seating capacity of 6. The highest point offers a magnificent 360 degree view of the city and one is able to witness Akshardham Temple, Humayun’s Tomb, Lotus Temple, Qutub Minar and Red Fort on a clear day. This is actually quite interesting!

This totally looks like a crazy gaming world with small-sized traffic light pedestals and narrow roads carved within a park. An effort by the government, the impetus behind starting these Traffic Training Parks is to make people learn basic traffic rules and driving techniques. It's actually a little bizarre to see the challan-gurus giving lectures over traffic regulations and defaults. Even the defaulters held for overspeeding are sent here for counselling and a crash course of 'Road Safety Rules' and practical tests.
They’ve got multiple training parks across Delhi NCR
We revere Lord Hanuman for his heroic role in the Ramayana. But people in this part of the city please the Monkey God to get their visa qualified! Named as Chamatkari Hanuman Mandir, this compact temple is nestled in the Saket area of Delhi. It’s believed that if you get the xerox of your passport blessed here in the temple, you'll surely get it stamped. Though we respect all beliefs, scientifically we’re still in the dilemma of scooping out a connection between God and visa!
Location | Neb Sarai, Saket
Yes, you read that right! The museum is still a mystery for people searching for the logic behind it. It’s actually weird to exhibit sanitation artefacts ranging back from 3,000 BC attached to display boards jotted with poetry related to the toilet and its use. The museum showcases with 'Ancient', 'Medieval' and 'Modern' sections including chamber pots, decorated Victorian toilet seats, toilet furniture, bidets and water closets.
