    I am arriving in Delhi at Old Delhi Railway station and need to reach Dwarka. Due to the high traffic in Delhi, I would prefer traveling int he metro rather than by road.

    I would like to know which is the nearest metro station to Old Delhi railway station, so after arriving at Delhi I don't have to ask anyone or make sure I get the right information and can go straight to the metro station.
