“The city of Delhi, built hundreds of years ago, fought for, died for, coveted and desired, built, destroyed and rebuilt, for five and six and seven times, mourned and sung, raped and conquered, yet whole and alive.. Yet the city stands still intact, as do many more forts and tombs, and monuments, remnants and reminders of old Delhis, holding on to life with a tenacity and purpose which is beyond comprehension and belief.”
– Ahmed Ali, “Twilight in Delhi”
In the heart of one of the city’s upscale localities lie scattered remains of the Delhi Sultanate’s fascinating history. In an earlier walk we had explored the Hauz Khas complex, this time we shall walk through the Hauz Khas Necropolis, which holds a rich cultural and civizational heritage.
This coming Sunday we shall understand how ‘Tarabaabaad’, at its zenith flourished under the patronage of the Khilji and Tughluq era until Taimur’s invasion finally crippled the Sultanate paving the way for the Mughal era in coming years.
In this walk we will attempt to connect to that bygone era by visiting some of the remnants of this Necropolis –
●Daadi Poti ka maqbara
●Bagh-e-Aalam ka Gumbad
●Hauz Khas lake
