About the Event

A special long walk for the Heritage Lovers. This sunday, we explore the part of Munirka, which we now know as R.K.Puram. The locality is now home to 8 beautiful tombs, a baoli a well and few mosques. We will start from Sector 5 in R.K. Puram, exploring the Wazirpur Gumbad Complex and then walk for about 600 meters to reach the Munda Gumbad in Sector 4. A short stay at the headless tomb and then we walk another 600 meters to catch a glimpse of the Bijri Khan's Tomb in Sector 3. These structures belong to a common period, yet each monument is different in architecture and has a unique story to tell.
