With my family, I reached Delhi by train. After some rest, we undertook a visit to Delhi. Delhi is a historical city. It has been called by different names in different periods of time. On one hand there are Red Fort, Jama Masjid, Jantar Mantar, Qutub Minar, India Gate which narrate the glorious past of India; while Rashtrapati Bhawan, Lotus Temple, Parliament, to name a few, are the wonders of modern times.
We visited the Lotus Temple first. The beautiful Lotus shaped Temple was opened in the year 1986, and since then has invited a number of visitors to its premises. The Lotus Temple is open to people of all faith.
The entry to the temple is through a gate that leads to a pathway with landscaped gardens on both side. We had to take off our shoes and deposit them in the shoe keeping centre. From there, we stood in a queue and waited for our turn.
