8 friends, a Reason like pulse, a place like Delhi - what else can one ask for..

After finishing out with a professional exams, so tortured by our life, we needed something to rejuvenate ourself.

Then started our journey to Pulse. PULSE 2K17

A journey is best measured in friends rather than miles..

It came out to be so true in those 4 days in Delhi.

Pulse - The largest medical fest held every year in mid September. So what, we just passed out and grab the opportunity and boarded the train.

Faridkot - New Delhi:

A beautiful journey through Shatabdi Express and a luxurious one too.

And the journey begins

Day 1

It sits near the banks of the Yamuna adjacent to the 2010 Commonwealth Games village in eastern New Delhi. Easiest way to reach Akshardham Temple is by Metro. There is a Metro Station by the name of "Akshardham" right outside the temple.

*You need to spare one full day out of your schedule to completely see this full complex*

The moment you step inside the temple, away branchthroughout your body. That feeling is ineffable. A sense of devotion, purity and peace conquers you.

It should be also, as this is what Akshardham means - Divine Abode of God

The Mandir is a tribute to Bhagwan Swami Narayan

It's art and architecture is so unique, that each and everything you see there, has the significance behind it.

Where you get to know values like non violence, love, honesty, peace, unity to incorporate into your life.

The best part of this exhibition is use of different technos like animatronic figures, 3D dioramas.

As we get seated for first show, the moment with saw Ghanshyam blinking, you get into series of questions

This a robot or human?

Such is its precision !

Get seated in the auditorium and explore how Neelkanth became Bhagwan Swami Narayan

One of the best thing and my personal favourite in the whole complex. We actually quite underestimated it, but a visit to it once will show you its value.
