First hours in New Delhi – part 1

Getting the feel of India by wandering around New Delhi.

We start of by visiting the Laxminarayan Temple. Interesting design and an attraction seeker for sure with its yellow facades, Be warned that for some reason, you cannot take your camera inside…. but it was perfectly fine to take a cell phone. You can leave your camera at the entrance in a ”security box”.

The next stop was Safdarjung’s Tomb. This mausoleum was quite small but being the first one I visited, it seemed quite impressive to me. There were barely any visitors here.

The third stop was Humayun’s tomb. This one was more impressive the Safdarjung’s. The whole complex housed the the tomb of Emperor Humaynun as well as several other important figures. There were quite a few local visitors but very few foreign tourists.


I spent my childhood in the middle of the Indian Ocean on an island called Mahé. Today, Montreal is where I call home. I'm a hobbyist photographer who likes to document my travels. I hope this helps inspire your next adventure.
