Sahapedia celebrates World Heritage Week @ Hazrat Nizamuddin Police Station | New Delhi | Delhi | India

Dear Sir/Madam,

Sahapedia, an open-access, online encyclopaedia on Indian culture, heritage and the arts, will hold a series of heritage walks across 16 cities of the country to enlist participation of a wide spectrum of enthusiasts for exploring and preserving the tangible and intangible cultural heritage of the country, as part of World Heritage Week.

Celebrating World Heritage Week- Visit to Nizamuddin Dargah

This magnificent dargah (shrine) in the National Capital invites you for a journey as it spreads the divine light that gives peace to hearts and souls with the essence of rose in the air. It is considered auspicious to be buried near a saint, and this is why there are so many tombs in this corner of Delhi. On our way, we will experience the sights and sounds of the Nizamuddin basti, passing by Urs Mahal, the white-marbled Chausanth Khamba, the little-known tomb of Atgah Khan, and a 14th century baoli. The conversations will revolve around the poetry of Mirza Ghalib, spirituality, qwwalis of Hazrat Amir Khusro and the wonders of the long-gone era.

This guided tour is free.
