After pickup from your Delhi hotel, Delhi airport, or any other desired central Delhi location, set off by private, air-conditioned vehicle to view the city’s great temples — testament to its melting-pot of religions and cultures.
Learn about Delhi’s religious heritage from your guide and visit Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, a leading Sikh place of worship. Admire the gold-domed building and holy pond, and see the kitchen, where all can come for food.
Continue to the Lotus Temple, a 1986 lotus-flower-shaped house of Bahai worship, and marvel at its white-marble flowerlike design and central hall, a place of meditation and reflection.
Following lunch at a high quality restaurant, travel to the Swaminarayan Akshardham, a magnificent Hindu sandstone temple built in 2005. Constructed by 11,000 artisans and claimed as the world’s largest Hindu temple complex, this extraordinary building boasts 20,000 carvings of deities and mythical creatures, all centered around a vast statue of Bhagwan Shri Swaminarayan, a revered teacher.
Finally, enjoy time for a shopping spree at Delhi’s retail hotspots. Let your guide recommend places famous for textiles, jewelry, carpets, art or handicrafts, and shop for souvenirs (own expense).
Your tour then concludes with a drop-off at any required location in central Delhi.
