Connaught Place and its pixeled memory became a part of every individual who happens to stay in Delhi at any particular time of their life. The place with a Lutyen’s heart adds charm to every diliwala who happens to be a part of its memory lane. Say it’s the large narrowed lanes, or the transverse between the inner, middle and outer circle. Connaught Place has added to its direction everything that probably a historian would like to prescribe.
Connaught Place flying the tricolor at the center, not only denotes the passion of India and Indian but also is a place submitting to the secular Idea of India.
With this blog, I will take you on a trip to this place which in itself has made a huge memory mark in my life too.

The Central Park situated at the innermost location holds the largest flag of India. The Central Park of CP is also seen with 21 Fountains set amidst 4 Water Bodies with a water cascade fringed with lights on the contours of each fountain and the cascade.

According to CBRE Group, “CP is the fourth-most expensive office destination in the world.
