Delhi - Sites

Baha'i House of Worship - Lotus Temple. The last of seven major Baha'i temples.








Jama Masjid (Friday Mosque)









Humayan's Tomb - Built in the mid 16th century for the second Mughal emperor. Various other tombs are on the grounds. The Taj Mahal was modeled after this type of early architecture.





Hare Krishna Iskon Temple

This was probably one of the most interesting things that we saw. It was very intense to see the way people worship here.





Qutb Minar - From the beginning of Muslim rule in India. The complex includes the first mosque to be built in the country.

















Taj Mahal - Getting there was not the most enjoyable thing I have ever experienced, but at the end of that very long day, including 13 hours on a bus, at least we were able to say that we saw the Taj Mahal!
