Do you ever wonder why ‘Twilight’ is considered to be such an uniquely ‘eerie time’ globally….Twilight when as it is said in Hindu Mythology ‘Na Din hai Na Raat’…When the hostile spirits of the ‘Undead’ trapped between life & afterlife come out to make their presence felt…when the Djinns seem to be the most active…And ‘Diyas’ (lamps) are lit to appease the ‘Unknown’…
Into that Twilight Zone we will walk into this Sat, as DBF will take you on a whole new way of experiencing our bustling metropolitan city…..When the golden glow of the most glorious sunset you can witness in Delhi gives way to the pale, ghostly orb of the moon, the forest trail takes on an eerie avatar and a strange white-darkness envelopes us all….
While we unfold old tales from the age of the Rajput kings of Delhi….of a time when ‘Fakirs’ would pray & perform rituals to control ‘Djinns’…when bandits would rule the jungles beyond Mehrauli…to the times when the British took over in the 19th century and turned the place into a slaughterhouse for criminals!
Re-live the gory battle scenes around the oldest fort walls of Delhi,..and where Delhi’s oldest forests on Southern Ridge are lit by the flickering city lights, and where a flash of your torch can seemingly transform the most innocent looking tree into the abode of the supernatural and scary!
This uniquely designed walk, the only one-of-its-kind in the city, is conducted in a mix of Hindi, Urdu & English.

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, has always embraced a culture of intellectual debate, embraced 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 & Parwaz invite you to the 3rd edition of our immersive, experiential and culturally-vibrant expedition to that great city of “Kashi”, a 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…Full of stories, insightful walking explorations, photography opportunities and of course lip-smacking foodie delights!
We will experience the touch of craftsmen working on their art, or meet at the crack of dawn wrestlers as they hone their skills, all the while as they dole out worldly-wise gems of life philosophy; see how & where Tulsidas imagined & wrote down his epic ‘Ramcharitmanas’; immerse in royal history as we enjoy rambling around the Ramnagar Palace/Fort. Glide on the grand river of India on our exclusive boat and feel the energy of Kashi permeating every cell of your body as the sun rises on the edge of the water; enjoy an exclusively designed evening on a royal-style ‘Bajda’ listening to the soothing strains of ‘Kabir’s Dohas’ as we row past the famed ghats of Banaras at sunset.
We will “lose” ourselves in the warp & weft of the world-famous silk weavers of Banaras and encounter myriad anecdotes and an enchanting world of lost tales as we venture into 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!
