EPIC FACE-OFF: MUGHALS V/S SURS

HISTORY, ARCHITECTURE & THE TALES OF THE SWAYING FORTUNES OF THE EARLY MUGHALS IN THEIR QUEST FOR SUPREMACY IN INDIA FOR 3 DECADES BETWEEN 1526 – 1556 CE

ADVANCE REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED, SO CLICK HERE TO REGISTER.

About 493 yrs ago, a stocky, battle-hardened Turko-Mongol decided to attack Hindoostan (North-Indian Subcontinent) after coming through the icy passes of the high Hindukush mountains with his small, yet well-trained army, and thus laid the foundation of the longest, greatest and richest royal dynasties of the medieval world, the “Mughal Dynasty”….
 
In 1526 CE, when above-mentioned invader, who history refers to as “Zahiruddin Babur” reached India, Dilli had already seen the passage of 6 dynasties and their 5 imperial capital cities built over a span of 300 years.
 
But it was the 6th fortified capital city of Delhi, ‘Dinpanah’, whose citadel the “Old Fort/Purana Quilla”, built by Babur’s son, whom we know as the 2nd Mughal “Humayun”, which is witness to the shaky beginnings and the subsequent epic face-off between the “Mughals” and the “Afghan Surs”!
 
There are perhaps more impressive forts than the Old Fort in the vast historical landscape of Delhi but none which tell the saga of the see-sawing fortunes of the early 3 Mughals who laid the foundations of the Mughal dynasty, and riveting battles with the Afghans led by Sher Shah ‘Sur’ who snatched away the throne of the Mughals to (almost!) make his own “Sur Dynasty” paramount in medieval Hindoostan!!!
 
This Sunday, join our co-founder, writer & heritage activist Ramit Mitra at this twin-location stroll into the pages of history, helping you make sense of the various layers of history you see, as he will weave stories of those dramatic 3 decades which saw the meteoric rise and almost-extinction of the Mughals, before the 13-yrs old son of Humayun, Akbar could regain his stronghold in India and give shape to his dream project for his father, Humayun’s Tomb, the first grand Mughal garden mausoleum of India.
 
The presentation will be done in English with some use of Urdu.
 
HIGHLIGHTS:
1) Old Fort: Having probably seen habitation for almost 3000years now, the Old Fort near Pragati Maidan has many an interesting tale, mythological as well as historical to share!
2) Explore one of Delhi’s most beautiful large mosques inside the Old Fort!
3) Appreciate the superb architecture of the 1st grand Mughal Tomb in India, the Humayun’s Tomb, including the Mughal Charbagh garden tomb concept.

‘बनारसी ताना बाना ‘ – BANARSI TANA-BANA 2019

An immersive dip into the eternal river of mythology, mysticism, history, spirituality & cuisines!

21st Dec – 24th Dec 2019

The history of a country is at times epitomised in the history of few of its principal cities. The city of Benaras perhaps indisputably seems to represents India – ancient, intellectual, spiritual, secular, a cultural and musical treasure trove!!!

There are few cities in the world of greater antiquity than Banaras, truly reflecting the Indian ethos of “Atithi Devo Bhava,” after all this ancient city, located on the northern shores of the Holy Ganga, bounded by the streams of Varna and Asi, two Ganga tributaries forming the city’s borders has always embraced a culture of intellectual debate, and the diversity of Hinduism, Islam, Bhakti and Sufism. It has welcomed with open arms mystics, artisans, musicians and people of all colour and race. And through this warm embrace, has also imbibed a diverse array of culture, music and cuisines.

DelhiByFoot…Adventures Unlimited!!! & Parwaz invite you to this great city this winter… to explore ‘Holy Kashi’ … as it emerges from the mists of time, and experience one of our typical in-depth, experiential and culturally-vibrant expeditions!
Full of stories, insightful walking explorations, photography opportunities and of course lip-smacking foodie delights!

We will experience the subtle touch of craftsmen working on their art, see how & where Tulsidas imagined & wrote down his epic ‘Ramcharitmanas’; immerse in royal history as we enjoy rambling around in the ‘Ramnagar Palace/Fort.’ We will listen to the soothing strains of ‘Kabir’s Dohas’ at the same places where he used to stay and preach.
We will “lose” ourselves in the warp & weft of the world-famous silk weavers of Banaras, who dole out worldly-wise gems of life philosophy, , myriad anecdotes and an enchanting world of lost tales as we venture out in serpentine alleys, bazars and famed ghats of Varanasi. We shall “find” ourselves in the tranquility of Sarnath at the spot where Gautama Buddha first taught the ‘Dhamma’, after his enlightenment. And, most definitely, we will enjoy the culinary experiences of the Delhi By Foot kind!

A kaleidoscopic journey into the many layers of Varanasi awaits you!
WILL YOU BE THERE?

DATES: Saturday, 21 Dec till Tuesday, 24 Dec

Limited seats, so hit us quickly for details on <explore@delhibyfoot.in>

  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
