Day 3:

Slept in; had masala omelet, toast and mango for breakfast, found my driver Vinati arranged after walking around the apartment building a couple times to find him at the adjacent building, visited Gurudwara Bangla Sahib which is a very fascinating Sikh temple, then had a late lunch at Haldiram’s with a couple dishes I randomly picked off the menu. Had chutney in both, so let’s hope my immune system overcomes it. 😛

Rained medium today after very heavy rain yesterday, and everything is damp. Drove to Akshardham Temple and took pictures from a distance since it is closed today. Went inside ISKCON Temple and observed followers.

Went to Lotus temple, a temple open to all religions according to Google maps, and climbed atop the wall to get a picture and see it since it is closed today. Now driving through bad traffic to return home. India could really benefit from highways that are elevated/segregated from other roads. All of the intersections and roadside shops cause bad circumstances.
