It was a lovely day for a view of Delhi after the rains had cleared the sky.
Delhi--sprawling, giant city that it is--goes as far as the eye can see.
And the Parikrama (meaning "to go around") restaurant gave us a perfect panorama as it revolved on the rooftop of one of the higher buildings in the skyline.
As I ate roasted eggplant curry and biriyani with fresh lime soda, I recognized some famous spots:
The minarets of Jama Masjid towering above office and apartment buildings.
The golden domes of Bangla Sahib Gurudwara.
And what a view of just how expansive the Connaught Circle is.
It looks pretty cool at night as well.
I went back another evening with some friends to see how it looks 240 feet over the ground after sunset.
Skylines are cool.
