New Delhi, the capital of India, which I visited last December (2010). What a trip it was! The highlight was visiting The Taj Mahal, one of the wonders of the world. Here are just a few pictures from that trip. Tough choice, because I only have about four hundred or so from that trip. Sigh. The sheer scale of these monuments is breath-taking.

|The Red Fort, Delhi. Sadly, couldn’t go in as it was closed on Mondays. Some bad planning on my part|
|The Rashtrapathi Bhavan, Delhi. The President’s residence.

|The India Gate, Delhi. War Memorial. Looks fabulous lit up by night.|
|The Jama Masjid, Delhi. Beautiful Mosque|
|The Jama Masjid – courtyard. See the pigeons. Delight to watch|
|Pigeons swarm in, grab the grains and fly off to return in a few minutes|
|One of my favorite pictures. Jama Masjid|
|Rickshawala in Karol Bagh, Delhi. I took a ride in it|
|The Taj Mahal in Agra. Isn’t she beautiful? She took my breath away|
Thank you for subscribing to my blog! Do consider leaving a comment – or just reply to this email! I’d love to know what you think.
Good photos, which are all beautiful, how beautiful architecture, one day I will visit this stunning place.
Been to India but never visited here…
It must be huge area, takes hours to walk around I guess 🙂
Leovi,I hope you visit. 🙂
Gorgeous shots! Can’t wait to come visit some day.
Breathtaking photos! Especially the Taj Mahal. I remember a show on TV when I was just 13, about two boys (one American, one Indian) who lived in India. I remember seeing the Taj Mahal on that show and wishing I could go there. One has many dreams as a child! Now maybe I can live one of them through you, my friend! You are proud and you should be!
(oh and how lovely you look in the pics, too!)
Oh yes, @Blogitse. Exhausting to go around. If there are staircases and steps, those are steeeep. 🙂 The Taj Mahal is a must-see. At least once.
Beautiful pictures …..i would love to visit there some day….Taj Mahal…amazing sight!
thank you, @Frau. I can’t wait to visit the Taj again. 🙂
These are stunning photos! You captured the beauty and majesty of this wonderful city.
This would qualify as one of my dream trips! Congrats on the great pics!
Wow, Tara. Thanks. You are such a fabulously creative photographer! Delhi is beautiful.
Thank you, Wayne, and welcome 🙂
Betsy, that would be so great. What fun!
Oh Terri, we had a wonderful trip – five completely hectic days. I’ll go back again, several times, of course. And should you visit, I’d go with you too!
You are so beautiful! I love your outfits.
The Taj Mahal is magical.

Here’s My SIMC
Lovely photos. It looks like you had an amazing trip. I love your Sundays in your city. Sending hugs!
@Saravana, hectic AND enjoyable. Nothing like rushing from one place to another and feeling totally overwhelmed at the end of the day 😀
@Vicki! Loved your SIMC and your blog. I also checked out the bffc blog – sounds like fun.
Dear Kim – thanks. Although I don’t always dress like that 🙂 Delhi is cold in December and hence the total cover-up! Thank you for coming – hugs.
Rachel – yes. we had a super time. Hugs right back atcha!
You have much to be proud of.
These photos are very impressive.
Blessings for a wonderful holiday season.
Thanks, Robyn – I totally loved your Santa pictures. Happy holiday season to you, too.
Some beautiful day I may get to see this in person. Until then, I am grateful to see it through your eyes.
I’m taken by the reddish ground in the second photo.
🙂 Unknown Mami – I love that photo too – the expanse of red was quite beautiful to see. I hope you visit India, too. You know you have a friend here, in me.
I liked the pics in Vidhur and you are there
