A660201 qutub minar, kutbuta, Delhi
I prefer to call this city “Delhi” rather than “New Delhi”, because the current capital of India, new China and old, old China and new China, has long been mixed. Generally speaking, the boundary between the New Delhi and the old Delhi is Delhi gate, while the picture and text of Delhi gate on the Chinese website is India Gate, including the famous x encyclopedia and search x encyclopedia. It can be seen that Google will not return in a day, and all living beings will be in a fog in a day.
From the perspective of Google Earth, the wide and straight landscape Avenue in the east-west direction where the Indian gate is located is obviously the central axis of the new city. The large left and right areas of the new city are new areas, with clear axis, regional center points and squares, and the road network radiated along these center points. This kind of urban planning is not a tradition of India. It has a distinctive British trace. And about four kilometers away from the north side of the Indian gate, the ASAF Ali street where Delhi gate is located, is the boundary between new and old India. To the north of this street, the texture of the city is obviously different. The high-density and small volume buildings, the fine streets and lanes, and the graphic logic hidden in the seemingly disordered are the typical old city form of India. The Delhi gate itself is a Mughal style old city gate, which is far lower than the Indian gate imitating the triumphal arch. Now, the Indian gate is also an isolated scenic spot. It is estimated that it used to be part of the old city wall of Delhi.
When entering and leaving Delhi, I finally saw more traffic jams and more chaotic air than the capital after a long time in the car. Motor vehicles, motorcycles, tricycles, bicycles, trolleys, pedestrians… All kinds of motorized, non motorized, industrialized and self-assembled means of transportation are on the streets. They are moving forward at a very slow speed, and the sound of whistle and engine is incessant. Fortunately, Delhi is not like other parts of India, at least we have not seen the wandering of the sacred cow in the streets we walk through, otherwise it is hard to imagine the extent of traffic chaos in this big city. And Delhi’s air pollution makes the city shrouded in haze, everything in front of it is covered with dust, even the leaves are covered with a thick layer of ash. Unlike DIDU, I’m afraid PM2.5 is not the standard here, but PM10.
There is only one day and one night to stay in Delhi. Staying in a hotel has become the most important thing, although such an interesting hotel has no time to really enjoy it. During the rest of the day, there was only enough time to go to a scenic spot, qutub minar. Why do many places of interest choose this? I have been to the red fort of Agra, so I gave up the similar style of the red fort of Delhi; I have been to the famous Taj Mahal, and the tomb of Humayun can be put on; I have seen many famous temples along the way, and the JAMA mosque and the Indian temple of aksam Saddam can be left for the next time; although the Lotus Temple of Baha’i has characteristics, most of my friends have seen Baha’i in Haifa, Israel World Center… Therefore, only gutebta is special and will not cause aesthetic fatigue. From this we can see that Delhi is a place of great achievement, at least the essence of northern India, where almost all can be found.
Delhi is mixed, and the impressions about it jump. There are clean and tidy embassy area, very stylish hotels, and chaotic streets. Bollywood star level fashionable beauties passing by the hotel door; the people in the street laundry see through the glass and iron a shirt to be unimaginably flat; in the restaurant, I saw some handsome Sikhs with Baotou and deep eyebrows, exaggerated head to body ratio, legs under the waist; the worst Chinese food ever eaten… It is these fragments that make up Delhi. It’s chaotic, but that’s the charm.
Delhi’s films, including those shot in hotels, are rare in recent years. It’s not only because of the poor color rendering of the air, but also because I always think it’s just the composition of the basic skills. After several years, I don’t know why these films were such results. Maybe it’s the journey. I didn’t want to shoot at the last stop. Maybe it’s because I think I’ll go back to that city many times. Sure enough, a group of friends of the Rajasthan party later organized several trips to India, going deep into different regions, with the largest number of people entering India. I didn’t follow the next few trips, but the two trips I most yearned for, North Kashmir and the Darjeeling region in Northeast India, have not been implemented yet. I don’t know when I will have a chance to return to this magical country and stop in Delhi again.
This Incredible Country！
entered the urban area of Delhi at first, and a few of them were pinched on the rickety car. There is no way to study the angle light, even cutting is difficult. All the elements of the city, architecture, streetscape, people, plants… The forest is always stuck together, unable to cut out a clear and definite piece. This is Delhi, chaotic, implicated, dusty and dusty.
Delhi is full of modernist buildings and police headquarters.
this area is the embassy area and looks relatively clean and tidy.
Obelisk Waterscape in the center of the circular turntable at the famous Indian gate and road intersection. On the grand axis, the Indian gate is on it. Both sides of the axis are green landscape within a considerable width.
the straight axis, the super wide road, and the office buildings such as the parliament buildings on both sides look huge on their own, and they don’t look huge at this road scale. We are not new to this scale. India is a parliamentary republic, but it also has such a socialist grand narrative A 6033 a 6033 a 60212 a 6033 a 6033 a 60213 a 6033 a 60214 a 6033 a 6033 a 60215 is quite different from socialism, that is, in the green space near the big axis, the people spontaneously move. There are stalls selling all kinds of suspicious food. Most of them are patronized by local people. We and other foreigners lack the copper intestines and iron stomachs of Indians, so we can only have a look. The three legged wooden platform is a bit like a humble version of the British lawn garden party. Many details of life here are influenced by the British imperceptibly. This location is equivalent to the garden stalls on both sides of Chang’an Street near Tian’anmen Square, which is unimaginable in our city.
qutub minar, a 73 meter high red rock pagoda built in the 12th century, is a structure of the Sultanate of Delhi, an Islamic architectural relic, and now a world cultural heritage site. The tower is Persian, similar to later Mughal architecture, but built centuries earlier than Mughal architecture. It can be seen that Mughal architecture is quite influenced by Persian style.
In terms of aesthetics, this tower doesn’t enter my eyes very much. The whole body proportion is a bit like a chimney. The upper and lower five sections, each section of the decorative belt between the separation from the large scale looks not very beautiful. I think its essence lies in the details. The Scriptures, flowers, and geometric patterns of these red rocks are really exquisite. Sandstone, a kind of porous material, is very delicate. It has both the hard and sharp stone and the soft and easy to shape other side, which can express very delicate carving.
There is a mausoleum beside tower . I don’t know who it belongs to. The red rock mausoleum is square in appearance, with a large round hole in the top and a white marble coffin in the center. The inner surface is almost covered with sandstone reliefs.
Gutebta said that it was first established by the kingdom of India. The body of the pagoda was originally made of Hindu statues. Later, under the rule of the kingdom of Sudan, the statues of Indian statues were replaced by those in Arabic. Now some of the sculptures of these Indian gods are hidden in museums. There are many cultural and architectural changes caused by foreign invasion in history. The most famous example is St. Sophia’s Cathedral in Istanbul, which was changed into a mosque after being occupied by the Ottoman Empire. The cultural power is always tied with the political, economic and military power, but the latter is not the only way. The Mongolian Empire is a counter example.
once again, gutebta encountered a uniformed group of students. A large number of primary and secondary school students have visited many scenic spots in northern India. It seems that India’s primary education is far more than a circle in the classroom
before leaving Delhi for the airport, the last meal was in a large indoor shopping and entertainment center in Delhi, and I still don’t know the name and location. Here can be called the “Venetian” of Delhi, just like the ambiguous blue sky of the ancient street of the small bridge and canal, only adding a little Indian element. It wasn’t ugly, and the food wasn’t bad, especially after being fed up with curry all the way and having one of the worst Chinese meals in Delhi. Can’t help but sigh again for the Incredible India!
