Walk with us to the North Delhi Ridge, where the Rebellion of 1857 was played out in a do-or-die battle that decided the fate of India. The Ridge was a major hideout used by the sepoys, and the different landmarks that mark the region are a testament to the historic mutiny of 1857. After the mutiny, the crown used the area to demonstrate its authority, as a result of which many military and civil settlements came up in the region. This period of turmoil shaped and reshaped the area, giving it a new meaning. Amidst the bloodied and ever-changing history of the region, there are a few other important sites to note, such as a Tughlaq-era baoli, the hunting lodge of Feroz Shah Tughlaq, and an Ashokan Pillar.
This guided tour is free.
