Co będziecie robić

A popular tourist attraction, the Lodi Gardens are situated in one of the poshest areas of New Delhi. These gardens house monuments and tombs constructed roughly between 1400-1700 AD. Between this period innumerable tales and stories got associated with the Lodi Gardens that came to define Delhi and its various cities like Mehrauli (Qutub Minar area), Nizamuddin and Shahjahanabad (Old Delhi and the Red Fort area). This walk explores some of these stories. Who were the people who constructed these monuments? How did they and others that followed them saw these gardens? For this we will not only try to view the monuments and these gardens as architectural projects but try to marvel at the stories associated with them. We will be talking of tales left behind to us in the texts written by the people who saw these gardens being developed and constructed all more than 500 years old!

These stories will take us on a history tour of Delhi over the ages - from the heyday of the Delhi Sultanate in particular, the rule of the Sayyid and the Lodi Dynasty from 1398-1525 AD and later to the Mughal Empire, British India and Post Independence period.

This walk will also show that the different cities of Delhi were and still are in conversation with each other.

Hi, my name is Karil Soral. I am a PhD doctoral candidate at the Department of History, Ashoka University. I like to walk and I have a deep fascination of studying monuments, art and architectural heritage. To this I add my knowledge of history, training as a historian as well as my research work. I undertake storytelling sessions where I attempt to undertake historical trails and exploring places the way they were in the past. Apart from that, I absolutely love to play and watch football (soccer) and am an ardent supporter of FC Barcelona . I am an artist as well and paint sometimes. I write blogs, collect music and play a bit of guitar as well.

Gdzie będziecie

We'll be majorly focusing on and visiting the Lodi Gardens. The gardens house a group of monuments and tombs built between the 15th-16th centuries. The gardens are situated in one of the most posh regions of Delhi which is home to many diplomats and bureaucrats. We will also be elaborating upon the history of this area (Jor Bagh/Aliganj as it is referred to now).

The experience was way better than I expected! Karil knows the subject matter really well and ensures that the pace and messaging is suited to the audience. All safety measures were in place and it was a delight to walk through Lodhi Gardens, understanding the history of the place, the monuments and the architecture. There are some really interesting stories there, would highly recommend this experience to all (whether you are from Delhi or from any other place!)
