Winston Churchill once said, ‘we shape our buildings and then they shape us’. So was the case with Delhi Ridge. Ridge was a major hideout used by the sepoys and the different landmarks that mark the region are a testament of the historic mutiny of 1857. After the mutiny, the crown used the area to demonstrate their authority and as a result many military and civil settlements came up in the region and north of Kashmere gate. This period of turmoil shaped and then reshaped the area and gave it a new meaning. This walk will demonstrate the way in which the area has acquired a new political meaning.
This guided tour is free.
