India: random shots

Tomb of Mughal Emperor Humayan, Delhi

Amidst the gardens, the magnificent gates, the grandeur of red sandstone and marble, the tomb itself is most humble.

Swaminaryam, Delhi. (100% marble)

A continuous flow wait for entry into the inner sanctum.

The Guru Granth Sahib is being sung continuously and broadcast throughout the temple, with the verses displayed on giant screens. The musicians are not referring to any script. They know it by heart, an impossibly complex musical accomplishment.
