India Gate - Delhi is the capital city, and my hometown. There is a lot to photograph and what better place to start than India Gate, which stands as a memorial to 84,000 soldiers of the Indian Army who died between 1914 and 1921 in the First World War. While I was there I also clicked a picture of the Rashtrapati Bhavan. Not the best click given it was far and I didn’t have a telephoto lens on hand but gives you an idea.
Bahai Temple - This might be my all time favorite place in Delhi. Likely, a function of the temple being a) 5 minutes from where I grew up, b) very unlike most religious temples - they actively encourage people of all faith to visit and partake in events and your donation does not decide how much access you have, and c) finally it’s insanely beautiful!
Also, I must add that when I requested the Bahai Temple staff to grant my request for a photographer’s pass so i could take pictures during and after sunset when the temple is closed they could not have been more helpful. That very evening I was able to come and take the pictures I have wanted to take for many many years 🙏🏽
