Early start to get past the roadblocks before roads close for Republic day. Drove by the India Gate and Parliament, so at least we saw them.
Visited India’s biggest mosque, then a rickshaw ride through the glorious chaos and narrow alleys of Old Delhi.
We never got into the Red Fort but you can see it above.
Note the begger with a baby following us!
Quick visit to where Mahatma Ghandi was cremated, a large area but unspectacular shrine with an eternal flame.
After lunch we visited Qutub Minar, India’s tallest minaret and palace grounds built c1100 by the Muslim invaders. Big!
Next the spectacular Sikh temple Bangladesh Sahib which boasts a soup kitchen that feeds 10,000 people every day. The kitchen was amazing.
Finally at 8.00 pm we got on to our very luxurious train for supper.
