Last Saturday we visited an area that was called Old Delhi.
And it was exactly that. Old! But..it was definitely an eye opener. I felt like I was back in the medieval times. Definitely a great experience. Here are some pictures!:
To get to Old Delhi, we took the metro. Interesting thing that I noted is when you go into the metro, you have to through the metal detectors.But then there’s metal detectors everywhere, so i guess it’s normal.
After walking through the markets, we went to one of the biggest Mosques in India! It’s called Jama Masjid and here’s a picture of it:
We learned that in order for women to enter into the mosque, they have to wear this traditional cloth. Here’s my co worker wearing it:
Additionally, the Indians believe birds are a sacred creature since they were believe to be messengers in the past. As such, they have a a lot of bird feed spread across the floor:
Afterwards, we made our way to Red Fort. This used to be the palace of the last emperor. Here’s a picture of it:
As you can see, I did not take much pictures when i was inside. This was because I got really sick lol. Actually, I got food poison at this time. -,-. Yes it was not fun. It’s also why it took me forever to blog this.
Anyways, 2/3 done with India. we are going to go out tomorrow again. The girls want to go shopping, probably not going to join them.
Till then. Peace!
