Late 19th Century Delhi heritage walk with a historian to relive Delhi in its twilight years

Delhi has always been the center of action for India. It has been the crown jewel of the Mughals and the likes before them. During the reign of the British Empire between 1858 and 1911, Delhi for the first time in more than a century was not the capital of country. The British East India Company had set up its headquarters at Calcutta (Kolkata).


Delhi was in the shadows and was reduced to a district of the Punjab province. The dwellers of Delhi started to flee the city in search of jobs and prominence. The trade was at a loss. The Brisit East India Company on the other hand began the process of transforming the look and feel of Delhi.


There were a lot of changes in laws and governance. The Mughal Delhi was sought to change completely. The domes and Minarets were reduced to mere symbols of an era that once existed. The same was a concern by a prominent Urdu poet of the era (till 1869) who lamented the change through the violent transformation.


This tour will be a combination of car drive, rickshaw ride, auto ride and walking. Please be prepared.

Notes: There would be restricted access to toilets. A water bottle and sun tan lotion are advised to be carried at all times. The price of 400 dollars is fixed for a 8 person group. There are fixed walks organized from time to time. Which are priced at 25 dollars per head. This space is continuously updated for date regarding fixed walks. Booking facility is also provided.
