Day 2

Half Day City Tour of Old Delhi

Your exploration of Old Delhi begins with a visit to the Red Fort, a symbol of Shah Jehan's Mughal power and elegance, also known as the greatest wonder of all the cities of Delhi. India's history has been closely linked with this fort. It was from here that the British deposed the last Mughal ruler Bhadur Shah Zafar, marking the end of a three-century long Mughal rule. It was also from its ramparts that the first prime. Minister of India, Pandit Jawharlal Nehru, announced to the nation that India was free from colonial rule.

The Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, after ruling from Agra for eleven years, decided to shift to Delhi and laid the foundation stone of the Red Fort in 1618. For its inauguration in 1647, the main halls of the palace were draped in rich tapestry and covered with silk from china and velvet from Turkey. With a circumference of almost one and a half miles, the fort is an irregular octagon and has two entrances, the Lahore and Delhi Gates.

Your tour continues with a visit to India's largest mosque Jama Masjid, originally known as "Masjid-I-Jahan-Numa", meaning "The mosque with a commanding view of the world". This mosque was commissioned by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jehan and was completed in 1656. For your next adventure, a special mode of transportation has been arranged, brightly colored cycle rickshaws, the best way to navigate the narrow, bustling alleyways. Your ride takes you through the fabled "Chandni Chowk" literally translated as "Silver Square", which was designed by Jahanara Begum, Shah Jehan's favorite daughter. It was commercial hub of the Mughal era and at that time inhabited by the well-to-do families of the city.

Your tour ends with a visit to Raj Ghat, a simple square platform of black marble found on the banks of the Yamuna, at the spot where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated following his assassination on 31st January 1948. The memorial has the epitaph "O' Ram", or "Oh God", believed to be the last words uttered by Mahatma Gandhi.
