Delhi, India – Part Two
Our return trip to Delhi included a day tour of India Gate, The Palace of the President, and a recommended tour of the place of Gandhi’s death. Gandhi’s place of assassination was informative and historical not only about his life but that of India as a country. Fairly humbling to see Gandhi’s “worldly possessions” all on a wall consisting of his reading glasses, walking stick, and a few other non-descript possessions.
The highlight for me of the return trip though was a visit to the Lotus temple at sundown. This is an amazing modern temple built to resemble the Lotus flower which is a significant symbol in Hindu religion and culture. The temple is beautiful inside and out and is definitely worth a visit although it’s away from most other things in Delhi.
