We will travel to Delhi by the Mumbai Rajdhani and spend a full week there. My brother-in-law lives in Gurgaon and we will stay with him. The kids have never visited Delhi and I have big plans to show them around – Red Fort, Humayun’s Tomb, Rajpath, India Gate, Jantan Mantar, Rastrapati Bhavan, Lotus Temple etc. And of course the many restaurants, shops and road side eateries.
We plan to visit Agra to see the Taj and spend the night in it’s shadow. Is it really a Shiva Temple desecrated by Shah Jahan who threw out the Linga and buried his Begum there?
Then we will visit Mathura and see the land where Lord Krishna spent his childhood. I remember the temple there and am really looking forward to visiting again and showing my family the earth where Krishna danced with his gopis.
Then on Friday we shall return by Rajdhani again. We love traveling by train. It is so much more fun than flying!
I can’t wait!
