Delhi – Begin your India Adventure
The day begins with the whirling streets of Delhi coming to life. The scent of fresh spices eminates from the chai sold and happily sipped alongside the streets. Small motor and bicycle taxis fill the lanes along with the rickshaws that are famous for winding through the wide and narrow streets. The impressive mixture of the city’s rich history pushes against the modern buildings, cars, and commerce. Delhi’s past is displayed in the museums and ruins. The Red Fortress was once converted to British barracks and continues to stand with vibrant red colors, from the sandstone walls to the towers that bring a sense of majesty from its glory days during the Mughal dynasty in the 17th century.
The walls extend over 54 feet tall encompassing the vibrancy of Delhi’s opulence within the large and quiet walls that hide the modern world away . You can also find the India Gate, a larch arch reaching over 126 feet high and built in 1931 as a war memorial. The wide and long stretch of road that leads to the monument allows you to also view the unending flame within the archway. You will have the evening to yourself able to enjoy the aromas of the famous mutton burra kebab near the old mosque as the marinated meat delicately lingers over charcoal.
