About the Event

We will meet at the Adam Khan's Tomb, locally known as Bhool Bhulaiyya. We will proceed to Jahaz Mahal, Jharna and finally come and sit at Zafar Mahal, where we will discuss about the evolution of Delhi. On our way out, we will visit Gandhak ki Baoli and discuss about the Water Supply system few centuries back.
Official govt records say that Delhi was started by Tomars back in 8th Century. However, the name Dhillika is much older. Also, Indraprastha and Kalkagarhi gets no mention in official records. We shall sit in the last palace built by Mughals and discuss these topics in detail.

The walk will be split in two parts:

  1. Heritage Discussion: This is for the history enthusiasts. We will take significant halts at places and discuss the history of that place
  2. Photowalk: This part is for the photography enthusiasts. While we will give enough time for photography at each location, the photographers will be free after Jahaz Mahal. They may join us for the discussion at Zafar Mahal, or simply continue on their own for photography.

How to Reach

We shall meet at Adam Khan's Tomb, locally known as Bhool Bhulaiyya. It is opposite Mehrauli Bus Depot (not to be confused with Bus Stand at Qutub Minar). As you reach Qutub Minar, keep heading towards the Mehrauli Village. After few turns, the road will reach an open area, with a huge tomb on your right, which will catch your attention from distance. You can get ample parking space near the tomb. If coming by metro, get down at Saket Metro Station or Qutub Minar Metro Station and take a rikshaw/feeder bus.

Precautions

Please carry water/snacks and wear comfortable dress/shoes that can help you walk for a kilometer or two.
