This walk takes you on yet another thrilling journey to explore the city within cities. It is accompanied by an interesting session of storytelling around the history and myths surrounding the Mehrauli Archaeological Park, which holds in its recesses centuries of heritage from the Sultanate to the Lodis, and from the Mughals to the British and Sufis.
Our Heritage Walk will cover the following –
a) The 19th century Metcalfe House, which was a 16th century Mughal Tomb, and was used as a guesthouse by the British, for couples on their honeymoons.
