Indians seem to be very proud of Qutub Minar. It is a nice sight to visit, no too crowded even on a Saturday afternoon.
As usual when it is available I decided to hire an audio guide. Audio guides will give you only advantages.
First no pseudo fake official guide is going to annoy you and try to get your money in exchange of dodgy historical facts…
Second the information you receive is probably accurate. It probably doesn’t work in every country but I think I can trust India for not trying to change History.
The Lotus Temple is a multi-faith praying temple. It is also known as the Bahá’í House of Worship. Apparently these Bahá’í Houses are sharing some characteristics. They should be roughly rounded and have 9 sides. I looked a bit inside and it was obvious that everything was build around the number 9.
Anyone is welcome to enter the Lotus temple and stay as long as they want. You are welcome to pray for whoever you want and speak to whatever god you want and for as long as you want.
This complex was interesting and peaceful like many other sights in Delhi. A throw stone away from the hustle and bustle of the streets of Delhi but very quiet inside. Some people are repairing some parts of the site. Their kids are playing with them as it is Saturday and they are not at school.
India Gate is a monument build in the 1930s in memory of India soldiers who died during first wold war. I was surprised to see something about France written on it, close to the top.
One week already in India and I finally got to go to some sight. Today I visited the India gate, Humayun’s tomb, Lotus Temple, Qutub Minar, Chhattarpur Mandir.

I have been travelling many times to Düsseldorf for business.
The Nokia Siemens Networks office is located very close to the airport.
Here are some of my tricks when staying there.
