Sahapedia Heritage Walk - Celebrating the Kite Flying Festival in Nizamuddin

Flying kites is a typical childhood pastime in India, yet when we grow older, we tend to forget how much fun it can be. You have to admit, when you look up and see a kite soaring in the sky, it brings a smile on your face instantly. Not only is kite flying a great way to enjoy the outdoors, but it can also offer a few health benefits that you might not realise. Walk with us to enjoy this unique pastime and also explore fascinating monuments, namely Kalan Masjid, Imam Bargah, Alvi Chauk, Phool Wali Gali, Khwaja Hall, Dargah Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya, Dargah Hazrat Ameer Khusrau, Urs Mahal, Chausath Khamba and Tomb of Mirza Ghalib.
