  • The large number of visitors was impressive and so we saw it very quickly from the outdoor gardens, from an architectural point of view the structure is large and particular. It is a symbol of Delhi.

  • I thought it was made of metal, made of panels, and it turned out to be made entirely of white marble. They don't let me in, they're beautiful outside, they're a kilometre away, I won't go again. So I saw a time for a tick.
