The old quarter of Delhi was established by the Mughals in the 17th century. In its heyday, ‘Shahjahanabad’ ranked among the most culturally sophisticated, architecturally impressive capitals in Asia – a city famed as much for the genius of its Urdu poets as its splendid ‘haveli’ mansions, palaces and mosques.
Things have changed a lot since the East India Company’s troops laid waste to the neighbourhood in the wake of the 1857 Uprising, but its warrenous backstreets retain many vestiges of their Mughal past, and we strongly recommend our clients experience the area’s unique atmosphere at some stage in their trip – ideally on foot or by cycle rickshaw in the company of one of our specialist guides.
Tours can last a few hours, or a full day. But whether this is your first or fifth visit to India, they are guaranteed to yield some of the most memorable moments of your holiday – things you will not see anywhere else, and could not possibly find without the help of a local expert. So charge your camera; lace up some comfy shoes; and prepare to be astonished!
