Join DBF for an evening of a mixed bag of experiences at the final resting place of the patron saint of #Delhi....Mazzaar-e-Khwaja Nizamuddin Auliya.…where the chaotic, the mundane and the mystical blend seamlessly as we jostle amidst crowds who sell kaftans & kebabs, flowers & ‘ittars’ (fragrances), masalas & mithaais…

We will meander lanes steeped in more than 700 years of history & divinity...streets which once saw the great Saint tread on them, and where the living & breathing Sufi tenets of spiritual healing continue to teach us lessons of universal love, brotherhood & hope....where the mundane and mystical blend seamlessly as they jostle amidst crowds who sell kaftans & kebabs, flowers & fragrances, masalas & mithaais…Where the 'Rekhta' (Shayari/Poetry) & Sufiyana music of Khwaja Amir Khusrau still resonates gently....mesmerising people with its uplifting tunes and where we share hazaar stories as you discover some spectacular monuments from a bygone era!!
A must-do for Dilli history buffs who wish to know more about Sufism and lovers of visual/photography experiences. The Heritage & Culture Walk will be conducted in a mix of Urdu/Hindi and English.
