A whirlwind of sights and sounds and smells during our three days in Delhi.  Here’s some of the sights that inspired me.

After a wild paddy-cab (bicycle rickshaw) ride, we went to the Jama Masjid Mosque; the largest in India, built by Shah Jehan, the 5th Mughal emperor in 1650.

45,000 people can pray here.

Washing in the sacred pool

On to the Mahatma Ghandi Memorial, Raj G’haat, the stately cremation ground with a serene monument containing some of his ashes.

Children dressed for the occasion.

The simple memorial

School girls visiting with their class.

We also went to see Bangla Sahib Gurudwara, approx. 200 year old Sikh temple.  The building is all marble.

But the inspiring part was the kitchen where food is prepared to feed anyone who needs.

More to come…
