Bolographing Delhi

A boy sitting in thinking mood at Fatehpuri Masjid which was in a way a rival of the Jama Masjid, the latter built by the Emperor and the former the creation of his begum, a devout woman, who, could not think of a better way to commemorate herself. In former times the mosque was not encroached upon by shops that are such an eyesore now. But there is a practical reason for having them there because of the income they bring to the trust that looks after the mosque and without which its upkeep would be difficult
Early morning sun rays reflections: Fatehpuri Masjid, built in 1650 is more than a mosque. Like the Fountain it is a landmark of Delhi that few can miss. Named after one of Shah Jahan's wives, it is at the end of Chandni Chowk, which initially began at the Red Fort. In those days one did not have to encounter heavy traffic to walk from one end of the street to the other.

Tthis is at jantar mantar at new delhi..liked the way these pillars gave an impression of skyscrapers


it might seem that the horse is stranded in the traffic. in fact it has been taken care from the three-wheeler in front. a scene from the busy Delhi roads..

Gurdwara Bangla Sahib in Central Delhi, was built in the memory of the 8th Sikh Guru,Sri Harkishen Sahib. It is one of the important historical Gurdwaras in Delhi.
