Send to LOCAL LENS BY JAMES ADAMS n OLD DELHI, INDIA Icaptured this busy street scene in the Old Delhi area of Delhi, India, in 2018. Now a popular tourist destination filled with shops and food stalls, Old Delhi was the capital of Mughal India from 1648, when it was founded as a walled city by Emperor Shah Jahan, until 1857. (At that time, the British Empire took over and established their imperial capital in what is today the New Delhi part of Delhi.) Once filled with the mansions of nobles, Old Delhi is also known for its Islamic architecture and Jama Masjid, one of the largest mosques in India. n James Adams is a Foreign Service regional medical laboratory scientist currently serving as director of laboratory programs and services in Washington, D.C.
