  • Harassed at every step, by touts, hawkers, beggars, and even our Indian government tour guide tried to bully us into making donations to the mosque and to buy red thread to make "wishes" - a hard sell that continued even when I explained that the wish-casting went against my religious beliefs. It's an amazing mosque but they made me feel like a target at every step. I was physically ill by the end -- and worry I may catch COVID as the hawkers got right in my face, until I finally had to shout at them. Sadly, it was the only thing that worked, time and again. I left there angry and upset, with my heart pounding with adrenaline, ready to punch the very last seller who almost touched my nose with his face, instead of thinking about the amazing history I'd just had the privilege to witness. Here's the coping strategy I'd recommend: when you hire your guide, if you so choose, tell then they must act as your body guard and keep all beggars and touts away, or they won't get paid. Sadly, I wanted to buy a couple things, if only to support the local economy that has been so hard hit by COVID, but I didn't dare stop because each time I did, I was mobbed. I'm glad to be out of there.
