The Agra Fort served as the capital of the Mughal Empire.
Akbar's Tomb is found in Sikandra (part of Agra).
This monument to the Baha'i faith looks like a Lotus opening up to the sun.
Charanjeet is the persevering taxi driver. His taxi number is DL1T-2580.
Dinner at the Baan Thai restaurant at the Oberoi.
You'll find more photographs of Gandhi Smriti online...
Here's a fountain found in the lobby of The Oberoi, one of the most exclusive hotels in New Delhi.
The Qutab Minar is a 72-meter high stone tower built by Qutub-ud-din Aibak in 1193. It has 5 distinct storeys, each with a projecting balcony. You will find the Quwwat-ul Islam Mosque, the first mosque to be built in India, at the base of this tower.
You'll find this 7-meter high iron pillar in the courtyard of the mosque. If you put your back against the iron pole, then wrap your arms backward, you'll get your wish if your hands touch. Yep, that's a barrier around the pole. I wish the barrier weren't there. ;-)
(Stay tuned for more India pictures...)
