Yesterday was our first full day in Delhi and to kick off the last leg of the trip, we visited two significant locations: Lotus Temple and the India Gate.

The Lotus Temple is a place open to all people regardless of faith, nationality, or any other characteristic. However, it is a temple for the Baha’i faith. This religion was founded in the 1800s after a man, the Bab, proclaimed that he was the manifestation of God and soon there would be another. Two years later, another man Baha’u’llah came forward as the second manifestation of God. He was imprisoned for many years where he wrote many books. They would then become the Holy texts of the Baha’i faith.

After the Lotus Temple, we headed to India Gate. This enormous stone archway serves as a war memorial to fallen Indian soldiers from World War I. It is surrounded by other important structures similar to the Washington Mall in DC. Because of this, there were a lot of people there.

I can’t wait to see more of Delhi and see where this last part of the journey takes us!
