Cultural Heritage


Gurugram is also close to many other top-notch destinations like Delhi (35 kilometres), Agra (197 kilometres), Jaipur (233 kilometres) and Chandigarh (288 kilometres), thus adding several options for places for tourists to visit in and around the city for quick or relaxed weekend getaways. While the famed Qutub Minar is a little over 20 kilometres, other famous local attractions in the city include Shiv Temple, Sheesh Mahal, Sheetala Devi Temple, Sohna and the Damdama Lake. Nature lovers might want to visit the closely located Sultanpur Lake, Asola Wildlife Sanctuary and Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary. 

Retail therapy is another recreational feature of Gurgaon. The hotel is part of one of the biggest malls of Gurgaon—the Ambience Mall—as well as home to about 40 other shopping and luxury malls. Some of the must-visits in Gurgaon—one of the richest and fastest-growing satellite cities in India—are the Kingdom of Dreams and the gourmand delights in restaurants and bars at the Cyber Hub.

For traveling on your own, you may opt to take the economical intercity mini-buses or auto rickshaws and taxis, which are all quite easily available. Nevertheless, The Leela Ambience Gurgaon can arrange for a very authentic local experience too. Avail of the hotel’s luxury sedans to travel around the city in extra comfort.
