Delhi My Visit to Capital City - Part III

 I am able to spend few days only in Delhi. So my visit to places is brief. I visit a bazaar to buy some articles. My bargain power is poor. So I end up with window shopping. 

#1, Safdarjung Road

A Very famous place.  #1, Safdarjung Road is where the office/home of the former Prime Minister of India, Shrimati Indira Gandhi was  situated.  She is reverently remembered in many parts of rural India as Indira-Amma (Indira-Mother). After her demise, it is turned into a memorial. I am fortunate to visit this place. Famous children Rajiv Gandhi and Sanjay Gandhi lived here with mother Indira Gandhi. Sonia Gandhi entered this house as an Indian Daughter-in-law.

It is interesting hub. Very well taken pictures too.Sad to see that kutub minar is now closed? It was. Delhi is past and Mumbai is present?
