Our trip to Incredible India, first stop Delhi. Here we started (with shoes off) at Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, Delhi’s largest and most prominent Sikh gurudwara (house of worship for Sikhism).
We then visited Ghandi Smirti, the location where Mahatma Gandhi spent the last 144 days of his life and it was here that he was assassinated on 30 January 1948 whilst walking out into the garden for evening teachings.
Next up Humayun’s tomb and our introduction to the history of the Mughal Empire. And then our first real Indian lunch and off to the pool.
The next day, we went sight seeing around Old Delhi with an orientation drive to see the Red Fort, Jama Masjid, India Gate, and the Presidential Palace. Afterward, the highlight of our time in Delhi, we took a rickshaw ride through Chandni Chowk, a captivating local bazaar. Here, ancient alleyways were lined with quaint shops selling all shops selling all sorts of goods and souvenirs – from silver and saris to spices and my main stop: Kashmir rugs!
