Receiving visitors provides always a good opportunity to discover a new piece of Delhi.
Yesterday we visited Jama Masjid and Old Delhi.
Jama Masjid is the largest mosque in India. Situated at the center of Old Delhi, it represents the heart of the Muslim community in Delhi: not less than 20,000 people crowd together in the mosque’s courtyard every Friday to attend the Friday’s prayer.
Old Delhi is the bursting heart of the city. Messy, chaotic, stinky: a stream of pestering hawkers, decaying beggars, rusty rickshaws, and holy cows. And yet colourful and vibrant. Old Delhi embodies the image that most people have of India.
Definitively, Delhi is not a place for demophobic…
