From Hauz Khas To Kinari Bazaar, Delhi Tourism Starts Heritage Walks On 6 Circuits

Delhi — the National capital of India has a lot of heritage sites that are worth visiting. The place was ruled by dynasty after dynasty, and every emperor of India has adorned the city with distinctly-styled architecture. Delhi, or Indraprastha (according to the epic Mahabharata), is now an important place for the country as most central government agencies are located here. But coming back to ancient heritage sites, it is necessary to recognise and keep them alive. And the Delhi government is doing the same! On Saturday, 25th March, Delhi’s Tourism Minister Atishi launched the Heritage Walks at the Hauz Khas monument.

Heritage Walks Launched By Tourism Minister Atishi

On March 25th Saturday, the Honourable Tourism Minister of Delhi, Atishi, launched the Heritage Walk at Hauz Khas monument. Along with her, there were Shri Somnath Bharti (MLA), Ms Niharika Rai (Secretary (Tourism) and MD and CEO of DTTDC), officers of Delhi Tourism and citizens at the launch. But why choose the Hauz Khas monument to start with? Well, the place has a wonderful history to it along with ancient important sites.

Hauz Khas is an ancient water reservoir for the royals built by Alauddin Khalji and was used to supply water to the residents of Siri Fort. The place houses a tomb and a mosque from his time. Apart from this, the place has become a hotspot for tourists and backpackers. And lodging and shops have increased significantly in the area. With easy access to the Delhi metro and several monuments, it was a perfect place to start the heritage walk.
