Humayun’s Tomb & Lotus Temple…….

Continuing from where i left last week (Qutub Minar), it was pretty much decided that we would go to Humayun’s Tomb and Lotus Temple on 28 Nov 2010 (Sunday).

It was just another busy week at the office and after much anticipation Sunday arrived. Movie session on Saturday night did the trick and we woke up late on Sunday Morning. So we abandoned our plan to visit the Lotus Temple in the morning and  decided to go to Humayun’s Tomb first….

We soon got ready and boarded Metro from Noida Sec 15 station to Indraprastha Metro Station and from their a 10 min ride on Auto took us to the Main Gate of the Humayun’s Tomb Complex. It was Sunday, so like any other place in Delhi it was crowded. After paying the entry ticket of Rs. 10/- each and after no checking and baggage scanning  we entered the Humayun’s Tomb Complex.

Enjoy the Tour…..
