First in the installments is the Kashmere Gate area of Delhi and stories associated with the same.
So here’s NICHOLSON’s CEMETERY for you!
The last episode of our video series about the Landmarks of 1857 brings us to the Mutiny Memorial in Delhi. Check out this quick video to know more about how this memorial is associated to the revolt of 1857!
One of the two Ashokan pillars in Delhi is at Northern Ridge. It stands on the road between Mutiny Memorial & Hindu Rao Hospital. Built by Ashoka during ancient times, transported to Delhi in the 14th cent by a curious king & then interpreted by the Orientalists.
Here’s a video which talks about this pillar – as we explored the Landmarks of the Revolt of 1857 at the Northern Ridge!
In this episode we make a quick visit to an old building, a Guard House from the 19th century, standing in the Delhi ridge… and we also discover more about the stories of the Revolt of 1857! Happy exploring..
In this latest series about the Revolt of 1857 (also known as the First War of Independence in India) we visit the Flagstaff Tower within the Delhi University ridge area. Let’s explore how this tower is associated with the revolt!
Starting with our new Heritage Exploration series that will refresh the memories of the REVOLT OF 1857!
Not many are aware that the RIDGE area in the DELHI UNIVERSITY North Campus houses some of the key places associated to the revolt. Here in EPISODE 1 we get introduced to the place and to how it is linked to the mutiny/revolt. We also make a quick trip to the Vice Chancellor’s office which was the VICEREGAL LODGE back then during the days of the Raj!
Hope you’ll like the series 🙂 Cheers!
