An Evening with Djinn’s of Hazrat e Dilli
October 7 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm UTC+0Rs.300
With the arrival of October, Delhi steps into a more pleasant weather and hence begins a perfect time of exploring this city the djinns loved so much that they could never bear to see it empty or deserted.
On 7th October, Saturday, as the Karavan walks around the ruins of the fifth city be prepared to be mesmerized by the stories of mysticism, legend and history. It is a place where belief is stronger than logic; and devotees write letters, stick coins on the walls of the mosque offering sweets and milk to appease the unhappy spirits.
Built by Ferozeshah Tughluq in the year 1354, it has the ruins of a palace, a baoli, dungeon cells and the Asoka pillar stands tall as if a witness to the history that flowed through here like the Yamuna once did. For most the Kotla is just an address of a cricket stadium but remember it’s also where an author fell so much in love with this city that it inspired him to write a book.
NOTE: Presentation will be done only in Hindi/Urdu

( agar aap aane ke khwaishmand hain aur aap apni pocket bhi dekh rahe hain jo apki taraf palat kar keh rahi hai ki nahin dost tum nahin ja sakte to aap bejhijhak chale aayen, kyunki humara khata khuda ke saath chalta hai to aap uss khate ke tehet tashreef laayen. “apki khuddari humari khuddari” 🙂
ESSENTIALS TO WEAR & CARRY:
