A close up of the marble pattern work on the outside of the Taj Mahal. The majesty of this building is known the world over, but the details were a joy within themselves.

A shot of the ceiling in the building before the Taj Mahal. I love patterns, and thought this was particularly beautiful.

The Lotus Temple reminded us all of The Opera House in Sydney, all the way down to the scale-like details. It was also interesting to note that the temple was surrounded by large pools - of course, because lotuses grow in water.

So much street art in Hauz Khas! I felt this piece was particularly sentimental as one of the taxi drivers was named Mr Singh. I also have a personal fondness of stencil graffiti.

A stunning piece of street art tucked away in Hauz Khas. The cream wall was the perfect canvas.
