Delhi is a cosmopolitan city and reflects the secular nature of India. People of all religions live in harmony. India is a holy land and many wise and divine souls are born here. Accordingly, the Indians are strong believers of religion and God. Some men can even build places of worship across the country to show their love for God. New Delhi is in such places. Today, these holy places have become religious and historical heritage of India. Places of worship of all four major religions coexist harmoniously in a tour of Delhi, namely, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism and Christianity.
There are several churches in Delhi, but the two most famous are the colonial churches of the Cathedral of the Redemption and the Church of the Sacred Heart, both designed by Henry Medd.

We must see the crowds in those churches during Christmas and other religious feasts.
