Destination Delhi

The capital city of India has lots to offer be it history, culture, food, temples, and everything else you could possibly imagine.
The first place that we visited was India Gate.
1) India Gate

India Gate is located at New Delhi.
This place attracts many tourists as well as locals daily. We came here at around 5:30 in the evening and believe me it was very crowed, the picture above says it all.
2)Humayun’s Tomb

 It is the tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayun.

There is a garden which leads you inside the main building where the tombs are located.

Along with Humayun, there are quite a few other Mughal rulers whose graves are also within the building.

This was the board that was put up there.
Out of all the places in delhi this was one place that fascinated me the most with it's rich history.

3) Laxmi Narayan Mandir – Hindu Temple
The temple is one of the major attractions of Delhi and attracts thousands of devotees on the Hindu festivals of Janmashtami and Diwali.
4) Qutub Minar

It is constructed from red sandstone, there are detailed carvings and inscriptions throughout the tower. Tried to capture the whole tower but it simply does not fit in a single frame it's that tall like 72.5 meter!
The guide over there told us that they used to allow people to go till the top floor, but they shut down that facility some years ago. 

There are many more amazing places that you can visit at this beautiful city but due to time restrictions we could not go everywhere. Sometimes you cannot visit many places, so it's better to enjoy at the place where you are to the fullest!!
