Old and New Delhi:  A City of Contrasts

We journey through the capital of India. The bustling metropolis is filled with modern skyscrapers that stand side by side with the hundreds of ancient monuments, making Delhi a physical dichotomy of yesterday and tomorrow. In the old city, we travel by rickshaw through the narrow streets and discover a world that is quickly disappearing. Bill continues on to the tomb of Humayan, whose architectural design inspired one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the great Taj Mahal. We visit two mosques for the record books: the first mosque in Delhi and the largest mosque in India. We then visit a temple that is open to all faiths and finally do the quickest tour of India without leaving Delhi.
