“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
●Chhoti Gumti
●Sakri Gumti
●Barakhamba
●Bagh-e-Aalam ka Gumbad
●Kaali Gumti
●Hauz Khas lake
●Munda Gumbad

The Nirvana trail : “A Heritage Walk and Sound Healing Meditation Session at Ahimsa Sthal & Azim Khan’s tomb.”

In this unique tour we’ll walk in the neighbourhood of the land of peace – Ahimsa Sthal! We’ll make an attempt to know more about the enlightened one and also soak in the tranquil surroundings of the place.

We’ll walk up to the mystical tomb of Azim Khan and listen to stories and anecdotes right from the ancient times of Lord Mahavira, through medieval times of Jains, Mughals and the British and how the hillock that once formed the Metcalfe Battery House today stands tall as the address of peace and tranquility in the heart of Delhi!

This would be a journey within, along the path traversed by the several enlightened masters of this land and a sip of a modern-day Sufi samaa, as we take a dip into meditation and zen with a quick Sound Healing session.
