In February of 2019, one of my closest friends was getting married. The wedding was taking part in New Delhi, India and it promised to be an alluring experience. I had a chance to witness and be part of one of the most important days in my friend’s life. My girlfriend and I decided to go to India for a week, be part of this incredible ceremony and experience a bit of the New Delhi lifestyle.
A day before the wedding we traveled to Qutub Minar. It is UNESCO World Heritage Site first built around 1192. The architecture was impressive and being present in a place with so much history was overwhelming.
The following day, we started a 3-day voyage into a traditional Indian wedding. Every day was more surprising and beautiful than the next.
Each day of the wedding brought different meaning, attire, music and colour. We learned about the Mehndi, Dhol and Sangeet ceremonies.
After the last day, we wish the happy newly married couple love and happiness and we set out to explore a bit more India. With a limited time scheduled, we decided to head to Agra, home of the Taj Mahal, one of the new Seven Wonders of the World.
Consistent with the rest of the trip, we were yet again in awe to witness such grandeur and magnificent building. We took several infamous pictures with the Taj Mahal but what really impressed me was the attention to detail of the architecture. Every part of the mausoleum was perfect, designed with a strong geometrical influence.
Traveling to India was one of the most memorable experiences of my life and I cannot wait to go back and explore much more of this beautiful and mystical country.
