Sikh Temple in Delhi

After an excellent Chinese lunch, our charming guide Prabhu took us to a Sikh temple.

There is a beautiful square marble colonnaded sacred lake at the temple complex...
...where, as you can see, we wore orange headscarves and fascinated the locals.
This is the huge kitchen where thousands are served daily.

It's a requirement that heads be covered and, of course, tourists are rarely prepared for that, so they issue these bright saffron head scarves to us. Think of it as a test of character, Nona!
