 Currency

 

The Indian Rupee (INR) is the official currency of the Republic of India and is issued and controlled by the Reserve Bank of India.

The modern Rupee is subdivided into 100 paise. The coins have nominal values of 5, 10, 20, 25, and 50 paise, as well as 1, 2, 5, and 10 rupees. The rupee coins are more widely used than the paise coins which are rarely used in physical commercial transactions. The bank notes are available in values ranging from 1 to 1,000 Rupees.

The Rupee experiences rapid fluctuations in the global market. Check currency conversion.

It is suggested that you exchange your currency either before departing your home or upon arrival at the Indira Gandhi International Airport. The hotel offers reliable currency exchange services too.

 

 In and Around Gurgaon, New Delhi

 

Located just 30 km south of the national capital New Delhi, Gurgaon, India is the second largest city in the Indian state of Haryana. Once a sleepy village town, Gurgaon is today an urban, hi-tech, thriving metropolis with skyscrapers and is known as “Millennium City.” Gurgaon is home to state-of-the-art offices housing some of the world’s major corporations, including Microsoft, Sapient, IBM Daksh, Oracle and American Express, to name a few. As recently as late 2010, Delhi Metro access was extended to Gurgaon, and multilane highways opened, making the commute between New Delhi and Gurgaon seamless.

Aside from the enormous business opportunities in Gurgaon, visitors will enjoy some of the finest shopping to be found in India. Be sure to visit DLF City Centre, DLF Mega Mall, MGF Metropolitan, Sahara Mall and Mega Mall for unique shopping opportunities.

AREAS OF INTEREST IN AND AROUND GURGAON

The water is strongly sulphurous and its temperature varies from 46° C to 51.7°C.The present site of main kund, called Shiv Kund, is believed to have been the abode of hermits during ancient times. The hot water is believed to have curative effect for skin infections and diseases like gout and rheumatism.

Its vast landscape, with peacocks strutting about, grips one with all its beauty and splendor. Sohna by night becomes a wonderland of lights, simply bewitching.

Gurgaon Skyline
Gurgaon can be clearly divided into two distinct worlds. The older areas of Gurgaon adjacent to Sadar Bazar still give a feeling of bustling market full of dusty alleys. During the night they give resemblance to Van Gogh’s famous painting, “The Potato Eaters.” Newer areas of Gurgaon have altogether a different feel. Especially during night, the skyline with glittering malls and speeding cars whizzing past the newly built expressway, can compete the skyline of the  best cities in the world.

Kingdom of Dreams
Ideally located between Jaipur, Agra and Delhi is the magnificent Kingdom of Dreams offers the finest shopping, dining and entertainment shows. Here, the magic of India comes to life. The Kingdom of Dreams brings to life a blend of India's art, culture, heritage, craft, cuisine and performing arts with the modern technology of today. This is an absolute must see site while you visit Gurgaon. While visiting the Kingdom of Dreams, be sure to check out IIFA Buzz, an ultra glamorous Bollywood themed café.

Galaxy Mall

For great shopping and restaurants, visit Gurgaon’s Galaxy Mall. The mall is home to the Central Cottage Emporium where you will find beautiful keepsakes and arts and crafts.
