3 Eras of Minority Groups in Delhi walk

Delve deep into the story of three different eras, starting from the Moghuls who built this city, the seventh city of Delhi. The concept of Old Delhi and New Delhi came with the British, who wanted to build an imperial city that would last for hundreds of years. Little did they know that their empire would fall off with the second world war and they would have to leave their colony.

Journey Overview

Our journey through time will cross from the Moghul to the British to the modern version of Delhi, all contained within these once tall walls. We’ll explore hidden away monuments from the Moghul era, traces of British culture engraved in the history of these streets, and see how the modern era emerged from this history.

You’ll learn why the British shifted the capital to Kolkata in an attempt to push out Mughal influence and see the mansion of the famous poet who documented the entire transition, Mirza Ghalib, to see how he romanticized language to change the perception from the street level.

We’ll follow the historical trails of Chandni Chowk, which was the backbone of the glorious empire of Moghul. This rich cultural hub had such significance in its time that it was the focus of nearly every western scholar. It was said to have represented South Asia in its entirety. You’ll find everything “from a needle to an elephant” along this historical journey through hidden rooftops, overlooked shrines, and mysterious alleyways.
