Baha'i Lotus Temple
Delhi is brimming with temples, but the unique architecture of the Baha'i House of Worship blossoms above the rest. The temple resembles a lotus flower with 27 marble petals that shelter a central hall that can accommodate 2,500 worshipers. Many believe the land surrounding the site has an increased energy that raises self-awareness and vibrational frequency. Though not scientifically proven, I did feel a shift after spending 15 minutes of silence in the hall. The temple receives an average of 10,000 visitors each day, so be prepared to share the sacred experience. Note: Closed on Mondays.

Monkey Hijinks
Travelers to India soon learn to keep an eye out for monkeys. They are adept at pickpocketing, purse snatching, and other kinds of mischief. I couldn't resist taking this photo outside of a temple near Delhi, before chasing the little trouble-makers away.
