Oxford Book Store: There is indisputably no rival to the magnificent Georgian architecture of Connaught Place, Delhi’s eternal hub for romance and recreation. Named after the Duke of Connaught and built between 1929 to 1933, Connaught Place’s unique three-ringed trinity circle is wrapped around majestic columns, weaving in and out of nooks and corners, with legendary restaurants, movie theatres reminiscent of the Raj and busy bookstores like the Oxford, for books of every kind from everywhere in the world.
