History
Connaught Place has a long and distinguished history behind it. Named after the Duke of Connaught, a member of the British royal family, this market was designed by Designed by Robert Tor Russell in collaboration with WH Nicholls. A sprawling circular market, it was the largest of its kind in India at that time.

The British believed that a market in the shape of a horseshoe would prove lucky for both shoppers and shopkeepers. There may be something in that as CP continues to be delhi’s premier shopping destination even after sixty-five years of its birth.

Apart from being the commercial and business hub of Delhi, CP has countless restaurants, watering holes, shops and emporia and cinema halls too.

How I was there
After a lot of inquiries, I dropped in Connaught place to buy the Tripod, with my friend. This is my first visit of this place.

While roaming the shops, I have seen many beautiful locations in this circle. almost I spent 5,6 hours here.

you can see every kind of shop in this circular area.

The building stands like the legends.Here I am trying to show the pillars of legends.
