1857 would always be remembered as a landmark year, as a beginning that had its conclusion after 90 years. Our Mutiny Trail narrates the story of the first war of Indian Independence, a transitional and turbulent period in time when the Mughal capital was turned into a battleground, overnight. The Siege of Delhi was a fight to the death between two powers, neither of whom could retreat, triggered events that altered the course of Indian history.
The monuments dotted across the landscape beyond Kashmiri Gate are surviving relics of its colorful historical past. These structures have seen the sands of time shift from the Mughal era to the days of the British Raj. They continue to stand as sentinels, carefully watching over all that came and went in Delhi.
