A Walk Through Old Delhi

March 11th, 2011 · No Comments · Destinations, Experience, Photos

After visiting the Red Fort, we wandered the narrow streets of Shahjahanabad, or Old Delhi looking for Karim’s and Jama Masjid.  Like old cities anywhere it went from crowded and chaotic to quiet down the bend of an alley. There were rotting buildings, sewage in the streets and piles of trash associated with a third world city, but up close some buildings were hundreds of years old, and the garbage was pushed off to the walls of the alleys.
