Long Description: 
We journey through the capital of India. The bustling metropolis is filled with modern skyscrapers that stand side by side with 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 Humayun, whose architectural design inspired one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the great Taj Mahal. We visit 2 mosques for the record books: the first mosque in Delhi and the largest mosque in India. Next he visits the National Gandhi Museum where he views personal items from Gandhi's life, visits a temple that is open to all faiths and finally do the quickest tour of India, without leaving Delhi.
