Delhi – the Indian capital and it’s monuments

On Friday and Saturday my friend Jatin from the yoga ashram and myself visited some very interesting historic sites in Delhi from which some are enlisted as unesco world heritage sites. Among them was the Jantra Mantar and the Qutab Minar. Both stand for the power and passion of construction by the Mogul rulers of Delhi. The Muslim rulers built many gigantic and imposing buildings in Northern India especially in Delhi and Agra. We also visited the Gurudwara of Delhi which is the main temple of the Sikhs and the Cathedral on the opposite side.
On Saturday I visited the last residence of Mahatma Gandhi which is also the place of his martyrdom. Every time I read about Gandhi-ji I feel very inspired by his personality. His idea of non-violence was so powerful that many other movements used it for their struggle. The human will can be so strong.
It is very impressive to know that you’re so close to places where history was written.
