In this episode of our Heritage Walks series we visit the CHAUBURJA MOSQUE in the Delhi Northern Ridge area. This place is believed to be built by Feroz Shah Tughluq in the 14th Century. The Mughals later added few structures on to the building and during the days of the Revolt of 1857 this was used as a picket and ammunition store by the British! Happy Exploring 🙂
A haunted lake with a bloody past; A girl in white cotton dress; A headless soldier; A lucky infant named Stanley Delhi Force; a battle between rebels and the company! All this and more in this episode of Landmarks of 1857 – remembering the days of the Revolt!
