Delhi

My grandparents live in Delhi, and so I've visited often in the past. Rarely would we ever explore the city, because we would instead spend time with family. On my ninth visit, we decided to tour the city a little bit. Driving around was like coming from the airport – a crazy amount of traffic and honking. Even getting anywhere two miles away can take thirty minutes, so we decided to stay somewhat close to our grandparents’ house.

The first place that we visited was Qutub Minar, which is the tallest brick tower in the world. It’s in an old complex with many buildings. There were engravings and scriptures embedded in the tower, walls, and different bricks. Afterwards, we visited the Big Sikh temple, which was beautiful and calming.
