October Magic in Delhi

These weeks of Oct as the weather turns in Delhi we bring you our city’s many  heritage & eccentric flavours!

SECRETS OF A CURSED FORT!

ADVANCE REGISTRATION IS REQD. TO ARRANGE FOOD, SO CLICK HERE TO REGISTER.

Delhi’s ‘Cursed Fort’ lies forgotten, almost a silent, massive sentinel on the South-western approach road to Delhi, mute spectators to the rise & fall of empires for the past 700 years.

Yes!!! Delhi has a fort which has been standing guard for the past nearly 700 yrs…but which was never completely lived in because of a powerful ‘curse’ that consigned its fate forever to ruins…!

As the weeks of good and cozy wintery weather kicks off in Delhi, join Ramit Mitra, our co-founder, as he explores the wide expanses of our city’s largest fort complex…and the obscure tales of a fort which seems to have been frozen in the pages of time since the 14th Century!

Walk, stroll, or jump & run like a child on ramps & paths where once richly caparisoned elephant climbed with their Sultans & Princes; crawl over fort walls, palace ruins and wild greens inside the sprawling Tughlaqabad Fort ruins on a slightly cool Delhi Sunday morning…topped up by a typical Desi Nashtaa !!!
SO ARE YOU GAME??!!!

A good opportunity for families with children, photographers and nature lovers.

DAY, DATE & TIME: Sunday, 20th October, 8:30AM
MEETING POINT: Tughlaqabad Fort Ticket Counter
CHARGES*: Rs.650 per person including brunch-style snacks!
*Children below 8 yrs are allowed free and we accept only 50%, Rs 350/pax for the 9-14 yrs age group & Senior Citizens!
*Entrance Tickets are to be paid directly.

ADVANCE REGISTRATIONS IS NEEDED TO ARRANGE FOOD, SO CLICK HERE
GROUP DISCOUNT: 4 or more people get to join at Rs550/person,

In case of any queries please call us @9871181775

ESSENTIALS TO WEAR/CARRY:
1- Our city is choking on plastic waste, so we hope you will avoid buying branded bottled water off the streets and instead bring your own bottle of drinking water.
2- We will walk almost 2 kms, so wear good pair of easy flip-flops or open sandals/floaters.

DRIVING INSTRUCTIONS: If coming from Gurgaon, take MB Rd and after crossing the intersection of Batra Hospital, go for another 2 Kms and on your left side you will see the massive walls of the Fort. Tughlaqabad Fort complex on MB Rd has adequate parking space for those in their cars.

Chk GoogleMap directions from South Extn1- http://goo.gl/maps/khv1

PUBLIC TRANSPORT: Nearest Metro Stn is Govindpuri, on Violet Line (Badarpur Track) and a 5 KM Auto-rickshaw ride will bring you to the Fort. DTC buses also ply on Mehrauli-Badarpur Road with regular frequency.


Deedaar-e-Djinns: In search of Djinns of Delhi

Exploring Tales of Sultans and Fakirs…and History and Mysticism in Delhi’s 5th City, Ferozshah Kotla or Kushk-i-Firuz…

The air is heavy with the smell of ittar (Indian flower extracts’-based perfumes) and the fragrance from the heaps of rose and marigold petals. The smoke from the incense sticks float upwards eerily, dancing it seems to the flickering light of the lamps and seemingly carrying heaven-wards the prayers by the devotees in the dark cavernous chambers below one of Delhi’s lesser known fort complexes….

Author-Historian William Dalrymple calls Delhi the ‘City of Djinns’.…but have you ever wondered why? Who are these Djinns of Delhi? Where can they be found? Where do they come from and go to?

Yes the “DelhiByFoot Time Machine” will this Saturday transport you to that dark, shadowy & mysterious world of Black Magic, Tilismi Djinns & Fakirs…a place where devotees come and write letters to the Djinns, stick coins to the walls of the mosque and offer milk, sweets and even meats to the Djinns….All with the single objective of appealing to the Djinns and their magical powers…in the 5th city fort of Delhi, the sprawling Ferozshah Kotla Fort!

Also known as Firuzabad, this lesser-known fort of Delhi never ceases to amaze, with its numerous monuments, mysteries and peculiarities and we invite you to explore the connections between that era when royalty went hand-in-hand with spiritual mysticism…to a notion that maybe is more modern than we think it is !!!

(The walk presentation will be done in English, Hindi and Urdu)

DAY, DATE & TIME: Saturday, 12th October, 3:30PM
CHARGES: Rs 400/person (All who join pay for their own monument entrance tickets).
GROUP DISCOUNTS: Rs.350/person for groups of 4 or more.
* Children below 10 yrs are best left at home!

TO REGISTER: Mail to <explore@delhibyfoot.in> OR WhatsApp/Call +91 9650515135

ESSENTIALS TO WEAR & CARRY:
1- The terrain sometimes involves climbing atop few walls and sometimes walking sedately on rolling grass, so preferably wear a pair of good walking shoes. Not that we will stop any flip-flop wearers from joining us!
2- Delhi is reeling under excessive plastic waste, and DBF discourages use of plastic bottled water, so request you to carry your own bottle of drinking water.
3- A cloth covering/cap for head, dupatta etc

MEETING POINT: Ferozshah Kotla Fort Ticket Counter, on Bahadur Shah Zafar Road, near the Times of India Office Building.(Google Maps reference: http://g.co/maps/6u7nm)

BEST WAY TO REACH: Nearest Metro Stn is Delhi Gate Stn on Violet Line (Faridabad track) and you can walk to the venue in 5 mins. Pragati Maidan station on Blue Line (Dwarka Track) and a 1.5 KM Auto-rickshaw ride will bring you to the Fort. Those driving in can easily park their vehicles as there is ample parking space.
Once you reach or in case of any queries to reach please call us @ 9650515135

  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
