A Long Day in Delhi: AM
A Long Day in Delhi: Morning and Afternoon
April 30, 2010. It was brick oven hot. Delhi was the capital of the Mughal Empire (16th to 18th centuries), and the British capital was transferred here from Calcutta in the 1920s.
Traditional light breakfast starring delicious sweet tea, bread with jelly, corn flakes, and an acceptable banana.
Paharganj, Backpackers’ Ghetto.
Rashtrapati Bhavan, the Indian White House
The Rajpath, connecting the capitol and India Gate
After Gandhi was shot, he walked to the garden. This was his final walk.
Next, I visited the Lodhi Gardens.
Construction for Commonwealth Games (ultimately not completed in time)
Bahá’í Lotus Temple
Issa Khan Tomb
My friend commented that this is more practical than the Taj Mahal.
