On our last day in India, we site see around Delhi and discovered a city filled with monuments, landmarks, historical buildings and shopping areas.
We flew from Bangalore to Delhi via Air India. The service was super friendly and the food is delicious. I chose the Indian food option and they gave me alot. I don't have a picture of their different pakoras. They gave me those before the main meal. Delicious!
We didn't have time to walk around the airport after we landed but what I saw on my way to the luggage carousels are site that I enjoyed. Lots of natural lighting. Lots of Indian artistry. The airport truly tells me "Welcome to India".
We arrived in Delhi at noon time. From the cab, I got my first glimpse of the city. Lots of hussle and bussle.
This is the India Gate. It is a massive arch landmark. On my map, lots of roads lead to India Gate. We stayed around the Connaught Place (CP) area of the city.
Lots of beautiful monuments and buildings in the city.
Here are the scenes I took from a massive mosque called Jama Masjid. There is a 'photo fee' per camera so we only brought our iPhones with us. I usually bring another camera with me just because it takes better picture. Because we were visiting a place of worship, we had to take off our foot wear.
This place is a haven for photographers. Lots of views with symmetry and natureal lighting.
Here are the scenes I captured from my visit to Humayun's Tomb. I almost cannot hear the hussle and bussle of the city from inside the complex.
I noticed right away the similarities between this place and the Taj Mahal.
The details are amazing.
Here's a government building.
Connaught Place is a great place for shopping. Look at the details of the outfit.
Mijo and I also had time to check out the spice markets in the city. We also tried their delicious masala teas.
Starbucks is popular among the locals. Here's the scene at Starbucks in Connaught Place.
My site seeing in Delhi came in last after my visits to Bangalore, Jaipur and Agra. One difference I noticed is the Biryani. The Biryani in Delhi is layered. It equally tasty and delicious.
I checked out the local KFC and ordered this spicy chicken with a side of Biryani. I loved it!
In Connaught Place, there is this place that sells cookies and confectionery called Wenger's.
I tried this spicy Lays and the flavor is called India's Magic Masala.
