  1. How gorgeous. Goodness it is key to have a retreat close to a major city. Especially a city as busy as Delhi. One of my blogging buddies who lives in Delhi visited NYC for the first time a few weeks ago. I met him there. He basically noted how NYC was nothing compared to the hustle and bustle of Delhi. Enter this peaceful, serene retreat. Tweeted for you.
