First hours in New Delhi – part 2

To end the first day in India, we visit the Gurudwara Bangla Sahib house of worship followed by an outdoor market.

I honestly had no idea what to expect that the Gurudwara Bangla Sahib but I’m glad I did not skip this. This is one of those experiences that help you better understand the different ways of life that exist out there. I will come back to this place near the end of the trip but this time with a guide. I’ll provide more details later. For now, what you have to know is that anyone can enter provided you are barefoot and have your head covered. The interior is incredible. There is an artificial pool/pond outside where worshipers come to bathe. There are very colorful and friendly people here.

Following the house of worship, the taxi driver showed us around Delhi for a bit and we stopped by an outdoor market to see how local business was conducted.


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.
