Begin your weekend with a specially curated heritage metro experience hosted by ‘India City Walks’ in collaboration with DMRC that connects you with the present day relevance of DMRC, the backbone of the capital city, packing you off on a journey that ends at the haunted precincts of Firoz Shah Kotla, the abode of Delhi’s djinns.
Kotla was once the opulent royal citadel of Firozabad, the fifth Delhi. Visitors, invaders like Timur and contemporary chroniclers have given glowing descriptions of its architectural grandeur.
