The India Arch

Delhi is the capital of India and has an impressive area that is very similar to the Mall in Washington, D.C. The India Arch is situated near one end of what is called the Raj Path. You can look far up the path and see the government buildings and the presidential palace (if it weren't so smoggy). This is the India Arch, a monument to their fallen soldiers. We just happened to be there on Sunday, a couple of days before Diwali (like New Year's), so it was very crowded with families, beggars, and vendors. We even got to see a man with a cobra. I didn't even want to get close for two reasons: I hate snakes, and I didn't want to have to pay the guy to take a picture.

The view through this side is to another monument nearby
