What awaits you
Main temples of Delhi We will begin our acquaintance with the ancient city with the Tomb of Humayun - the very first Mongolian mausoleum in Delhi, erected in the middle of the 16th century. You will learn why it is often confused with the Taj Mahal and how these magnificent structures are connected. Then walk through the park with fountains and hear why the tomb was built in the middle of four gardens, washed by water. You will also see the Cathedral Mosque, which is considered the most important in Old Delhi
Architecture and Conan Doyle To trace the development of the architectural style of India, we will go to Kutab Minar - a brick minaret built by several generations of the Delhi Sultanate. You will understand how the architecture of the city has changed, and you will understand why the construction was delayed. Find out why Kutab Minar was called "the tower of victory" and unravel the mystery of the seven-meter iron column, the only surviving part of the ancient Vishnu temple. You will walk along the Red Fort of the era of the Great Mongols and find out what the heroes of detective Conan Doyle did on its territory
Meditation and spice You will see the main temple of modern Delhi - a revived white pentelian marble in the shape of a blossoming lotus flower. And then we will go to the Garden of Five Senses: an oasis in the center of bustling Delhi, a beautiful park built among the rocks. Here you will walk along flowering shrubs and bodies of water, and I will tell you how the people of India relax and fill in the big city
