Yamuna Vihar is a locality in North-East Delhi.

Kashmiri Gate ISBT is around 6 km, Anand Vihar around 7 km, Delhi University (north campus), 7 km & Connaught Place around 20 min and 30 min drive respectively from Yamuna Vihar,(Shiv Vihar,Joharipur) 2 km in Yamuna Vihar.

Yamuna Vihar is a major educational hub for north east Delhi. It has Bhim Rao Ambedkar College of Delhi University.Ram Lila Ground (Hanuman Vatika) attracts people not only from Yamuna Vihar but also from nearby colonies during the Dussehra festival celebrations. Rath Wala Mandir, Arya Samaj Mandir, Jain Mandir,Siddarth Temple & Shri Peepleshwar mahadev Mandir (Sai Temple) are major temples for the residents. Apart from this a Gurudwara, a Mosque & many other temples add to the religious aspect of the colony. aggarwal dharamshala, Brahmin samaj dharamshala and community centers are also there. There are lot of parks in Yamuna Vihar. Some of the parks are dedicated to the usage of women (e.g. Mahila Park) and old age people. These parks do play a big role in making Yamuna Vihar a green and beautiful area. On the flip side, in past two years there have been lot of thefts happening in this area. This is primarily due to lack of Police patrolling and monitoring. Amongst its nearby areas, Yamuna Vihar is the only well-planned locality. Transportation from Yamua Vihar to Yamuna river crossing is messed up and need to be improved. One of the steps taken by the state government to improve transportation is the upcoming Signature Bridge, which is only at a distance of 4 km (2.5 mi).Also it has many restaurants like the yellow chilli ,Basinghey etc. in and around it..
