Baoli

New Work - Nizamuddin Baoli by Matt Treager

Back in June of 2014, Sacha and I were finishing up our 10 weeks of travel in New Delhi, India. And heatwave (+110℉ temps) be damned, I was determined to get out of our comfy A/C'd hotel and see the city. So I set out to the Nizamuddin District to view the tomb/shrine of the famous Sufi saint, Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya. What I didn't expect to find was a 700+ year-old spring-fed pool right next to the shrine. With a crowd of locals coming to bath in the holy waters (and escape the blazing heat), I worked my way into the baoli (pool) area, and spent the better part of an afternoon there taking photos.
