Visiting the Lotus Temple

Sunday 16 July 2017

After a well deserved lie in, we managed to get up and grab a quick bite to eat before heading out for the day. Our first stop was Humayun’s Tomb, built in the 16th Century! Despite the immense heat and humidity we made it through the hour long tour. Following this we went towards the Lotus temple (a highlight of my 2015 trip).

En route we found a shopping complex with Nando’s… to say our mouths were watering was an understatement! After a half hour queue, personal reflection time within the temple, and many, many photos with the team and the locals… it was time for food. There was only one place on our minds! Following a well deserved feed in Nando’s, a few of us went to mass in the Cathedral. A beautiful church with some questionable singing– nonetheless it gave us a great opportunity to reflect on the trip and how it’s affected our lives.

Afterwards we met up with the rest of the group to go to the cinema. (Side note: the new Spider–Man is definitely worth a watch!) As the night was coming to an end we decided to take in some of the Delhi nightlife– an experience to say the least! Afterwards we got the rickshaws back to the hotel for another well deserved rest!
