My trip to India was a 10-day tour (small group of 14 people) with Sinorama, a tour company I highly recommend. I did the tour at the beginning of February 2018.
The tour started in Delhi where we stayed at the WelcomHotel Dwarka. We stopped by the Rashtrapati Bhawan, once the Viceroy’s residence, now the official residence of the President of India and passed by the India Gate for photos.
It was fascinating to visit the National Ghanhi Museum and the famous Sikh temple, the Gurdawara Bangla Sahib. At this temple there is a kitchen that prepares meals for anyone that is hungry. I was very impressed with the joyfulness of the people as they prepared these meals, and the many recipients who patiently sat in the dining hall to receive their meal.
Below, you will also see many Delhi street scenes, where vegetables and street food is sold. The little yellow and green taxis are everywhere!
Gandhi Smriti or Birla House
Birla House, was originally the residence of the wealthy industrialist Birla family. It was established in 2005 as a memorial and museum dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi, where he used to stay during his visits to Delhi.
Gandhi spent the last 144 days of his life here and was assassinated here on January 30, 1948 on his way to offer customary evening prayers. A large collection of photographs, a few personal belongings and many writings and wise sayings capture this extraordinary man.
