“EIGHT CITIES OF DELHI WALK-FEST”

NOV AND DEC 2018

Starting with an alternative-narrative walk on why Mehrauli has endured over a millennium we embarked on our DBF- Delhi’s 8 Cities Walk-Fest, last Sunday!

Our series of absorbing new walks on the medieval cities of Delhi, but with a TWIST…. Check out the amazing walks we’ve curated at Delhi’s medieval cities over Nov & Dec…not just historical monuments, but we will literally walk you through 1200 yrs of tales of our city, monumental architecture, the people, culture, customs and cuisines, planned over the next 7 weekends.

We are headed into week #2 of the Walks Fest with another intricately nuanced walk led by a young Architect & fellow history lover as she takes you on a journey into the life & times of early 14th century…This exploration of tales of the 2nd city of Delhi will touch upon architecture, eccentricities of two remarkable Sultans, political climate & flourishing of #Delhi as a beacon of art & learning this coming Sunday.

This is the 2nd walk of DBF’s “Eight Cities of Delhi Walk Fest”

WALK #2: KISSA-E-HAUZ KHAS

Tareekh-e-Khilji to Taleem-e-Tughlaqi

Sunday, 19th Nov, 8:30 AM

Hauz Khas or HKV as it is popularly known today, is crammed with chic fashion boutiques and fresh culinary experiences, many of which boast a stunning view over the ruins of a medieval ‘madrassa’ (Islamic educational institution). These dead ruins, often mistaken to be the walls of a historic fort, stand next to what used to be the water source for the 2nd city of Delhi- the 13th C Siri, built for the dynasty of the Khiljis by the most powerful of them all, Allauddin Khilji.

About 50 years later, around it developed a bustling centre of theological studies and artistic inspiration- hosting scholars & researchers from the fallen city of Baghdad and crowning the glory of an orthodox Sultan Ferozeshah Tughlaq.
From students enjoying the genial climes of the lake and the prevailing winds from the forests to succumbing to the devastating sweep of the Turkish Amir Timur ‘The Lame’, this lake and its surrounding ruined multi-domed and pillared complex have seen it all.

Let a young architect and history lover walk you through the life and times of one of the most ‘notorious’ Sultans to have ascended to the throne of Dilli. Explore the multifarious reign of Sultan Allaudin Khilji who inspired admiration and resentment in equal parts, recently portrayed as the villain in a Bollywood film. Having risen to power by deceit, he was known for his unbending and austere ways. But history also remembers him for his notable economic & administrative reforms, an example of which was to remove religious interference in matters of the state, unheard of before him, which in turn made him popular amongst his ‘Awaam’ (Citizens)

Explore an architect’s perspective on the earlier phases of Islamic architecture in the Indian subcontinent against the backdrop of the existing Hindu and Jain vocabulary. This walk will offer glimpses into some of the building techniques and raw materials used in medieval India and methods of cooling and aerating buildings using simple technology.

Come explore with us yet another group of romantic ruins in our city as you enjoy the same timeless breeze that few of the most brilliant and some devious minds did in 14th century Delhi.

The presentation will be done in a mix of English and Hindi/Urdu.

  3. Hi Guys, just came across your site… and realised that i’ve missed the walk for the 21st… can you let me know of future walks please… i just love history…

    1. Hi Ayushi,
      Thanks for writing in with your concerns. We do not charge money for providing any travel mode to any participant.
      First let me explain what happens in a typical walk event we organise. People meet at a given point and then guided by us they embark on a short walking tour experience of 2-3 hours which covers a small specific theme/monument/cultural aspect of our city of Delhi. During this walk we share the historical facts of the monuments, then we recount interesting anecdotes about the people, both present and past and share our learnings about the cultural aspects of the city. Contsantly our team update ourselves with interesting trivia, stories and to do all this regularly, safely while maintaining a certain level of quantity is the reason why the money charged is for. I now hope it is clear to you and we will wish to see you, very soon on our walks…
      Thanks
      Ramit Mitra
      Co-Founder and Chief Explorer
