India Travel Diary

                                     Jama Masjid (Delhi)
                      Rickshaw ride around Chandni Chowk (Old Delhi)
                  Chole Bhature (Spicy Chickpeas with Fried Bread)-Really Spicy!!

                             Qutab Minar-UNESCO World Heritage
                       Bahá'í House of Worship (Lotus Temple) 

As this was my first trip to India, I don't think there's a better introduction than the 'Golden Triangle' (Delhi/Agra/Jaipur). Here are some shots that you would probably cover on this tour. The pictures are also a reflection of the religions that make up this country; Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism. Below is a list of my favorite attractions and must do's in each city.

Delhi: (Old and New Delhi)
-Gandhi memorial
-Taking a rickshaw ride around Chandni Chowk
-Grabbing a meal at Haldiram (well known local fast food joint around India-trust me it's clean!)
-Qutab Minar
-Lotus Temple

-Taj Mahal (that's a given!)
-Agra Fort
-Itmad-Ud-Daulah aka 'Baby Taj'
-Fatehpur Sikri

-Elephant ride at Amber Fort
-Jaipur City Palace
