We as human being are never satisfy with what we poses rather we are provoked by other's possession and in this run we forget the sole content that satisfy our needs. Necessities that are not materialistic rather rejuvenate our soul and subconscious mind to perform at par. We are stuck in the Labyrinth of social responsibility and obligations.
For me visiting archeological heritage and spending some time alone relishing past glory helps a lot. I have been in Delhi from past 7+ months but hardly found any time to see the best of Delhi. Well on Saturday eventually decided to visit lal qila and jama masjid in spite of all the odds, yes the odds were pretty strong and with every minute under scorching heat was a blow on self-confidence. However once I saw the Tri colour held hing at lal qila the Indian inside me boosted my cells as if I were a satellite about to be established in my orbit. A sublime energy filled child inside me with the anxiety. Mughal Emperor Shahjahan, started construction of the massive fort in 1638 and work was completed in 1648. The Red Fort was originally referred to as "Qila-i-Mubarak" (the blessed fort), because it was the residence of the royal family, one can still be embraced by the royalty and the ambience of the place. Lal qila was built in lieu of the needs of the royal blood. The place was awesome as u might find some princess touring india. Lal qila has 2 museums with artifacts the speaks for rich history and is one of the integral part of golden period of Mughal rule.
Post lal qila my next target was jama masjid, The Masjid-i Jahān-Numā (the 'World-reflecting Mosque'), commonly known as the Jama Masjid of Delhi, is the principalmosque of Old Delhi in India. Commissioned by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, builder of the Taj Mahal, and completed in the year 1656 AD, it is the largest and best-known mosque in India. Jama masjid was enormous enough and its architecture by far the best, when I reached jama masjid it was already past 1 in afternoon and the Red stone (primary building material of jama masjid) was hot enough to roast chapattis and you had to move without your shoes on was difficult but the vibes of the monument stimulated the zeal of witnessing something glorious. It was one of the best experiences as have been to many places in India but Delhi has vast archeological diversity to satisfy every eager and enthusiast person and your demands are met. I have uploaded some images that I took you can have a look and please embrace in with ur suggestions. Looking forward for ur posts.
