You have probably heard of the British Durbars – now find out more! To unravel Delhi’s history in 1911 and learn about the transfer of the British Capital from Calcutta, we explore heritage sites associated with “Temporary Delhi” in and beyond Civil Lines. This is the capital as it existed in 1912-31, predating the New Delhi we are familiar with. Includes high tea at a homestay connected with the British Raj.
Surekha Narain is a hard-core dilliwala and has grown and evolved out of Delhi’s unique heritage. Surekha leads Heritage walks in and around Delhi and has over 30 walk routes, in Delhi. As a conservationist, her objective is to create awareness about our natural heritage and designs walks of well-known and lesser-known areas of Delhi and its surroundings.
