Tour of Old and New Delhi, visiting the Red Fort, Jama Masjid-the country’s largest mosque, Raj Ghat-the cremation site of Mahatma Gandhi, Gurudwara Bangla Sahib- Delhi’s largest Sikh temple and Humayun’s Tomb. I also visited Chandni Chowk bazaar on a Rickshaw, hanging on to filthy rails as we bumped and zigzagged our way through the lanes, these motorised little carts are used by locals to get around the narrow lanes to do their shopping.
I have to mention the kitchens which are below the Sikh temple, where every day volunteers prepare lunch, which is free to all. Despite the intense heat, huge aromatic pots of food are stirred over gas fires, hundreds of flat breads are made and paneer is chopped up. A different meal is prepared every day, when and I walked outside people were already queueing for the food.
