ARTS & CULTURE

Tughlaqabad Fort Hike

We hike through the desolate fort of Tughlaqabad, looking at the ruins of the various structures that encompassed the supremely well-engineered palaces and citadel, finally delving into how a Sufi’s curse destroyed its fate to what it is today. Duration: 3.5 hours

City of Jinns Walk

Feroz Shah Kotla, a 14th-century fort complex, became touted to have been an abode of jinns ever since the fort was abandoned. We delve into the history of the fort and the prosperous Sultan who ruled here and how this complex largely inspired Shah Jahan to shape the landscape of his new city nearby. The fort also has some nasty tales of treasury and betrayal associated with it and we then look into how it’s now an abode of jinns and fairies, frequented by locals, who pray to the jinns. We talk about the supernatural beliefs, the myths and mystics surrounding jinns and see the various customs prevalent here till date. Duration: 2.5 hours

Zafar Mahal Walk

We visit the last summer palace of the Mughals followed by the shrine of the first Sufi saint of Delhi, whose histories are quite inter related. The palace although in crumbling condition now, still showcases the grandeur of Mughal architectural motifs. We discuss the life and times of the later Mughal regime when the Emperors were just puppet kings actually governed by British residents and how their lives and royal customs changed from their era of glory till their downfall.

SHOPPING

Chandni Chowk Walk

This walk aims to give the audience a glimpse of Old Delhi from an insider’s perspective. The Chandni Chowk stretch has many structures hidden in its nooks and corners which miss your eye. From ancient havelis to unexplored monuments, this place is a reservoir of history and culture. We walk through the stretch till the chowk and then delve right into the narrow lanes of the city, cruising through bazaars and landing at a myriad of concealed structures which are sure to awe the travellers. Duration: 3 hours. We make some stops here for Old Delhi’s classic chaat and street food options.

DAY TRIPS

Nizamuddin Necropolis

The area around the shrine of Delhi’s patron saint, Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya, has been a royal necropolis since centuries as the Sultans and Badshahs of Delhi were devout believers of the city’s extraordinary Sufi influence. We walk around the area, exploring the monastery of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya where he lived and prayed and then exploring many other (4-5) royal mausoleums and their stories and how they came to be built in this area. We end the walk at the shrine of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya, with some soulful qawwali. Duration: 3 hours.

Hauz Khas Necropolis:

When talking about heritage in Hauz Khas we mostly keep ourselves restricted to the Hauz Khas Fort and Lake Complex. But there are a myriad of other scattered monuments located all around the area which have major significance and stories about royal life and the protocol of commissioning monuments during the era of the Sultanate. We traverse 6-7 such structures and then enter the lake complex, delving into its importance as one of Delhi’s main reservoirs and finally enter the Hauz Khas Fort complex which actually was a world class 14th century university, complete with classrooms, hostels and assembly halls. Duration: 3 hours.
