Parikrama Restaurant
A revolving restaurant is one whose base is not fixed on the ground. Since such a restaurant needs a base, which acts like a revolving turntable, or a revolving platform, it cannot be built on the ground level. All such revolving restaurants are located at higher stories in a building or any other tall structure. If you want to enjoy dining at such a restaurant in New Delhi, then there is only one restaurant, Parikrama the revolving restaurant. There is no any other revolving restaurant in Delhi, though you may find such revolving restaurants in other cities of India. To get a list of all revolving restaurants in India or any other country visit Wikipedia.

Parikrama is at a higher point (240 feet) than any other restaurant in India, and the complete restaurant covers two floors, 24th, and 25th floor. You should reach to the 24th floor for the revolving part of the restaurant. For a closer look to the insider of Parikrama visit this link >> parikramarestaurant.com . But remember, this is only a restaurant and not a hotel, and so you cannot book rooms for overnight stay. Parikrama is located in the Connaught Place area of New Delhi, which is one of the largest shopping centers in New Delhi.

Best time to visit Parikrama is at night, when you get the glittering view of the city of New Delhi, from such a great height. You will feel, as if, the outside scenes, as seen from the window of the dinning hall, are changing after every 5-10 minutes or so. The movement of the restaurant is slow but still noticeable. Once you spend 90 minutes on the cuisine table, one revolution (360 degrees) of the restaurant will be completed. But usually people don't stay in the restaurant for that much time, as one cannot eat so slowly, and serving at the restaurant is also not so much delaying. But there is a lot of rush at night, especially during weekends, and you may need to wait 20-30 minutes to get an entry in the restaurant. Making prior table reservation is advisable.

The 360 degree view from the restaurant, let you see all the nearby places like Jama Masjid, President House (Rastrapati Bhawan), central park, silver line of Yamuna River, the Divine Birla Temple, Pragati Maidan, Delhi Gate, New Delhi Railway Station, IGI Stadium and many other important landmarks.
