Old Delhi is the old walled city surrounded by New Delhi. Delhi has 3 UNESCO Heritage Sites all within 2 miles of each other. They are ruins of primarily Muslim mosques. Interestingly, the succession of these sights architecturally were the forerunners of the Taj Mahal, dome wise. All sights were interesting to see. This was the first time we have heard the loud blasting of the “call to prayer” each at 1 & 4 PM. Guess they do it 5 times a day.
t mosque in Asia which covered at least 3 city blocks. The streets around the mosque were covered with shops catering to the sale of halal Muslim food products. Poultry killed while you wait and stripped and prepared to halal requirements.
All in all an A+ day of experiences. Tomorrow we head out to Agra and the Taj Mahal.
