Lonely Planet review

New Delhi's colonial heart is Connaught Place, named after George V's paternal uncle. Its white, colonnaded streets radiate out from the central circle of Rajiv Chowk, lined with swanky stores and restaurants. The outer circle (divided into blocks G to N) is technically called Connaught Circus, and the inner circle (divided into blocks A to F) is Connaught Place, but locals call the whole area 'CP'. Almost every visitor to Delhi comes here, which partly explains the rampant touts.
