A Historical and Spiritual Escape in the City of Cities!
January 12, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm UTC+5.5500INR
In this first event of 2019, Delhi Karavan brings to you a special heritage trail. Though we would be walking in one of the most popular areas of the city, yet we will be visiting some historical gems that still remain less explored. This part of Delhi has shown its significance since the ancient times and even dates back to the era of Mahabharata. Some of the most revered Sufi saints and mystics have had their spiritual abode here. Because of its importance, the place is also surrounded by a number of Mughal era tombs of emperors and other royalties.
Let’s make the most of this walking season as we cover a stretch of around 6 Kms. and visit numerous lesser-known, but noteworthy, monuments and sites 🙂
