Walk to Lutyens Delhi: A journey of the making of an Imperial City Great cities often come up at the cost of smaller hamlets. And New Delhi is certainly not an exception. In 1911, when the British decided to transfer their capital to Delhi from their de-facto base Calcutta, nearly 150 villages in Delhi, mostly inhabited by farmers had to forsake their land holdings. The designs were to symbolize the grandeur and power of the British Empire which was quite apparent at the beginning of 20th century. It was derived from the best traditions of the European renaissance fused with Indian styles of architecture as well as enlivened by a detailed design of plantation composed of carefully chosen varieties of indigenous trees and other vegetation. The buildings and their compounds, as well as the roads, were laid out according to the very generous standards befitting an imperial city. Special features of this walk- Lutyens Delhi is not only representative of an unparalleled heritage, but it offers a constant voyage of discovery in which the past fuses into the present and is projected into the future.

I'm Shashank Gupta, based in Delhi as a walking tour guide from last four years and currently pursuing Master's in Medieval History from Jawaharlal Nehru University. I belongs to a city called 'Khurja' which is 90 Kms south east in the state of Uttar Pradesh, famous for it's traditionally made terracotta/ceramic products, traditional houses and street food. As a heritage enthusiast, I see Delhi as a mystery of thousand years history, roaming around kingship, power, citadel, tombs and people's past etc. but all of them have a reason behind, who knows from an old alley to a name of road what can amaze you more than anything in this city. I really feel immense pleasure to unravel those mysteries through heritage walks and research in this field. You're welcome to have an unforgettable historical evening in the heart of Delhi
