Weekend Excursions and Trips

Trip to Taj Mahal – Weekend One 
On the first weekend, volunteers will be going to Agra to visit the world famous Taj Mahal which is also among the Seven Wonders of the World. The Taj Mahal is considered to be one of the finest examples of ancient Mughal architecture. It is one of the most popular tourist sites in India and is also visited by almost all the volunteers who join our programs in Delhi.
 
Delhi Sightseeing Trip – (Weekend Two)
Volunteers will discover Delhi and go on a tour to some of the most famous spots of cultural and historical significance in Delhi.
 
India Gate: At the centre of New Delhi stands the 42 m high India Gate, an "Arc-de-Triomphe" like archway in the middle of a crossroad. Almost similar to its French counterpart, it commemorates the 70,000 Indian soldiers who lost their lives fighting for the British Army during the World War I. The memorial bears the names of more than 13,516 British and Indian soldiers killed in the Northwestern Frontier in the Afghan war of 1919. 
 
Lotus Temple: South East of Delhi, this temple is built in the shape of a lotus flower and is the last of seven Major Bahai temples built around the world. Completed in 1986, it is set among the lush landscaped gardens. The structure is made up of pure white marble. The architect, Furiburz Sabha, chose the lotus as the symbol common to Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Islam. Adherents of any faith are free to visit the temple and pray or meditate. 
 
Humayun's Tomb: This magnificent garden tomb is the first substantial example of Mughal architecture in India. It was built in 1565 A.D., nine years after the death of Humayun, by his senior widow Bega Begam. Inside the walled enclosure the most notable feature are the garden squares (chaharbagh) with pathways water channels, centrally located, well proportional mausoleum topped by double dome. It has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 
 
Qutab Minar: It is a soaring, 73 m-high tower of victory, built in 1193 by Qutab-ud-din Aibak immediately after the defeat of Delhi's last Hindu kingdom. The tower has five distinct storey's, each marked by a projecting balcony and tapers from a 15 m diameter at the base to just 2.5 m at the top. The first three storey's are made of red sandstone; the fourth and fifth storey's are of marble and sandstone. At the foot of the tower is the Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque, the first mosque to be built in India. A 7 m-high iron pillar stands in the courtyard of the mosque. It is said that if you can encircle it with your hands while standing with your back to it, your wish will be fulfilled.
