Delhi is a very modern Indian city with amenities that can be compared to any big city of the world. But as one of my VT friends had put it, Indian roads cannot be imagined without animals, Delhi too is no exception, or should I say, it is full of animals all around! In Delhi, just keep an eye for it and you will come across horses (and horse drawn carriages), cows (and cow-pulled good carriages), buffalos, camels, goats, donkeys (with loads on their back), monkeys (ofcourse), apart from cats, dogs, pigeons and crows that are all around as usual. Delhi seems to have too many of them, and I guess it must be interesting for tourists, if ofcourse, you are not too nosy and choosy about surroundings. This is life in India, and we are just so used to it that we don't even notice.

Kabuli or Khuni Darwaza -- To the left of Chandni Chowk; there was once a gate across the road that was called Khuni Darwaza or the Bloody Gate. The British reoccupied Delhi on 20 September 1857 after fierce resistance by rebels. On 21 September 1857 Bahadur Shah surrendered to Hudson at Humayun's tomb. On 22 September three Mughal princes, Mirza Moghul, Mirza Khizr Sultan and Mirza Abu Bakr were brought by Captain Hudson in a bullock-cart and shot dead at Khuni Darwaza near Delhi Gate. He ordered the princes to take off their upper garments and killed them one by one. The three bodies were carried to the Kotwali and stripped off all the clothes except a rag around their loins, and laid on stone slabs outside the building before they were buried. The reoccupation of Delhi was followed by massacre and plunder and it was even suggested that whole city be razed to the ground. Mirza Ghalib, the great Urdu Poet, who was a witness to the killings and plunder wrote in his Dastambu: "GOD ALONE knows the the number of persons who were hanged. The victorious army entered the city along the main road. Whomsoever they met on the way was killed." The "Khuni Darwaza" still stands in its solitary grandeur exactly opposite the main gate of the Maulana Azad Medical College.
TOMB OF SAFDARJUNG
Safdarjung's Tomb is a garden tomb in a marble mausoleum in Delhi, India. It was built in 1754 in the style of late Mughal architecture. The top story of the edifice houses the Archaeological Survey of India. The garden, in the style evolved by the Mughal Empire that is now known as a charbagh, is entered through an ornate gate. Its facade is decorated with elaborate plaster carvings.
It was built by the Nawab of Avadh for his father, Safdarjung.
Inside are two graves- that of Safdarjung and his wife.
