Old Delhi

We visited the Baha’i Lotus Temple which couldn’t have been more tranquil with its expanse of lovely landscaping and openness. We attended a brief service in the Temple, in which a woman sang in Sanskrit. In the afternoon we visited the immense market in Old Delhi, the most crowded and chaotic place I’ve ever been. Our guide thought it best we not walk so we took bicycle rickshaws through the pulsing crowds. India is nothing if not a land of breathtaking contrasts. (Photo by Paula Fallon)
