Vedic Odyssey's spiritual adventure takes you to New Delhi, India on the cultural and photographic tour titled Gems in the Desert.

India's capital

New Delhi

Aaaah....New Delhi! It brings a wave of emotions. This capital is a concoction of mixed experiences for the traveler. Spiced with rich history and over salted with modernity, New Delhi is a curry to sample but not indulge in. Our stay here is brief. It is our meeting ground. An opportunity to gather our wits, get to know our fellow travelers and begin our spiritual adventure.

That said, there is much to see in New Delhi. During our brief stay here, we will visit Old Delhi, meander its crowded alleyways and explore the local markets. And it is a little shoppers paradise here. We will also visit Akshardham, the magnificent 100-acre complex built by members of the Swaminarayan group in love of their founder (pictured at the very top).

Local Markets

A walk through the local markets is purely for your senses. The range of fruits, vegetables and spices on display is something to experience in person and the market scene is active from dawn to dusk to say the least.
