Unwell while travelling is my biggest enemy. Unfortunately, my Delhi trip was cut short due to my prolonged flu. In the midst of my tissue-moment, I managed to visit Delhi again from where I left off behind last year. Gosh, it has been quite a year!!
Baha’I House of Worship
Baha’I House of Worship is the official name, but better known as Lotus Temple because of its physical appearance. The temple is decorated with 27-petalled white marble lotus, looking grand on the exterior, and complemented with a simple interior. Because of its popularity, this temple is featured on the local postage stamp too.
Lotus temple is for worships regardless of the one’s language or religion. With this statement, I’m in love with Lotus Temple already!
Humayun’s Tomb is always closely compared to the Agra’s Taj Mahal. The buildings’ exterior is somewhat similar, except Humayun’s Tomb is in red sandstone and Taj Mahal is in white marble. If Taj Mahal is a form of dedication from a grieving husband to his wife, Humayan’s tomb is vice versa.
The symmetrical cubes and minarets make perfect postcard pictures. Being a UNESCO World Heritage Site, be prepared to squeeze yourselves among the many tourists during the peak season.
The Safdarjung’s Tomb is not massive as Humayun Tomb or Taj Mahal. It might not be as well-known as the other two, but there are certainly some resemblances with the Humayun Tomb. .
There is no water in the water channels and the tomb seems to be deteriorating greatly. Extra attention will be needed before it turns out to be another abandoned site.
