Connaught Place and its iconic white pillars form a large circle in the centre of the city with seven streets diverging from it.

Often shortened to CP, Connuaght Place was built by the British in 1933 and was named after the 1st Duke of Connaught and Strathearn. In 1995 Connaught Place was renamed Rajiv Chowk after later Prime Minsiter Rajiv Gandhi, yet it still continues to be known as Connaught Place. Connaught place is divided into the Inner, Outer and Middle Circle and the Outer Circle is at times referred to as Connaught Circus.
