The capital city of India is a glorious concoction of the old and the new. Temples that are centuries old, archaic Muslim quarters, and modern residencies, all exist alongside each other. Home to over a crore people, Delhi is a treasure trove of historic gems, gardens, museums and a thriving food culture. Travel to the metropolis for the vibrant bazaars of Chandni Chowk that give way to Lutyens’ New Delhi, which is the historic heart of the city. For an insight into the legacy of the Mughal era, go to the 16th century Humayun’s Tomb, the towering sandstone mosque of Jama Masjid, and experience the sound and light show at Red Fort. Tourists can spend mornings at the extravagant Akshardham Temple and evenings at the Hazrat Nizam-ud-din Dargah (shrine) that boasts of sufi music and delicious kebabs. Another popular attraction of Delhi are its pulsating markets that sell everything from baubles to handicrafts, sell everything you can possibly think of. Those who have travelled to Delhi for its particular brand of food, will have a lot on their plates. From hole-in-the-wall eateries and local student cafes in North Delhi to lavish restaurants and bars in South Delhi, there is no dish or cuisine you won’t find here. A huge incentive for travellers is the variety of public transport, wherein the Delhi Metro is the cheapest and easiest way to get around the city.
We reached Khatu at 7 in the evening. This was the place which drove me crazy beacuse of the vibrant atmosphere and bustling bazar near the Khatu dharamsala or guest house near the temple. The choori shops, the chappals, the gudda guddi dolls, the showpiece of Rajasthani folk, the food, the yummy Puchka, the different spices and pachaks, the wide range of papad and eatables, everything was very pleasing and absorbing. I spent almost 3 hours in the bazzars and then I went to the temple along with my family. We attended the morning aarti at 7:00 AM in the morning. The temple is of SHYAM BABA, who is another form of krishna ji, the god. All the three temples, Jhunjunu, Khatu and Salasar are the holy places for Marwaris and the person who goes to one will cover all the three temples. Though it was a trip meant for visiting temples which normally people don't prefer going for, specially kids, I wish we could at least go there once in two years, if not one as for me it's a revival of my childhood, my native place, my homeland and my culture.
