pictures of New Delhi India Part 2

Ok..Am sorry… I have been a bad blogger. I deserve to be spanked. I promise from now on I won’t go missing for two, three days without posting a damn thing..

Work place is becoming more hectic. More and more tasks are being loaded over our already over loaded scheduled. I guess they are taking full advantage of our service, making full use of the money they are paying us.. Anyway, nothing comes for free… Who in the world get paid for doing nothing (How I wish I could be like those guys in Twitter who use to DM me every day about how they made millions working from home). This is life and I should be glad I still have a job (even though it sucks from the bottom to the top) to feed me.

As promised, I am going to post ‘My Tour of New Delhi Pictures-Part 2’. Today I’ll try to add some spice to the pictures by add some information about these places. Here it goes:




New Delhi Railway Museum: A Miniature Train on Diaplay



--> Delhi Railway Museum: The Monorail steam train


Delhi Railway Museum: Another Exhibit


Delhi Railway Museum: A visitor checking out one of the exhibit trains displayed on the grounds of the Museum.


New Delhi Railway Museum: An Electric Locomotive on Display



This is Rajpath the ceremonial avenue of India. The buildings visible is Rastrapati Bhava, the official residence of the President of India.



View of Rajpath from India. The green Lawns are very popular among family picnickers


The Qutb Minar: This is the world's tallest brick minaret. Built in 1193 under the orders of India's first Muslim ruler Qutb-ud-din Aibak and was completed in 1386 by Firuz Shah Tughluq.


The Qutb Minar is 72 meters high (237.8 ft) with 379 steps leading to the top. The diameter of the base is 14.3 meters wide while the top floor measures 2.75 meters in diameter.



The pillar enclosed by fence is the famous Iron Pillar of Delhi. It is one of the world's foremost metallurgical curiosities. According to belief, anyone who can encircle the entire column with their arms, with their back towards the pillar, can have their wish granted. To bad, visitors are not allowed to do that at present or else i could have wished for a small mansion in the Bahamas, a small private jet, some playboy bunnies, an American chopper and some swanky sports car (LOL).



Humayun Tomb: The tomb of Humayun was built by the orders of Hamida Banu Begum, Humayun's widow. The construction took 8 years to complete.

Humayun Tomb Garden: The tomb grounds features a Persian-style garden which is the first of its kind in the South Asia region.

(P.S: Part 3 is on its way)

  1. The train photos remind me of the movie 'The Darjeeling Limited'. Have you seen it? Owen Wilson/Wes Anderson film about brothers traveling through India.

  25. Hi mo.stoneskin,

    I use to get tons of DM from people who wants to sale their product which will allow me to earn millions from the comfort of my home.. If they really know a way to earn that much why don't they just earn their own millions instead of selling their products...

  53. Delhi is the capital of India and stands third in terms of size. The city has more than a thousand years worth of history to boast of. The city is home to a huge number of historical structures and monuments that bear testimony to the historical significance.
