The Delhi Eye

Built on the lines of the London Eye and Singapore Flyer, this 45-m high giant wheel called Delhi Eye is housed in an amusement park in Kalindi Kunj and is all set to roll from September 25. As tall as a 15-storey building, the state of the art wheel promises a snapshot of monuments located as far as Qutub Minar and Red Fort to Akshardham Temple, Lotus Temple and Humayun's Tomb apart from a bird's-eye view of Connaught Place all in a matter of 20 minutes.

The giant wheel has been built by a European company and has been installed with all safety equipment. "We have carried out safety tests and the wheel is internationally certified. A power backup, along with a manual brake system, makes it risk-free. Two hours before each ride, we check the wheel for safety,'' said wheel inspector Patrick Peck.
