Second round of Metro 'Heritage Walk' to begin tomorrow

NEW DELHI: Delhi Metro is all geared up to organise the second round of its month-long 'Heritage Walk' programme this Saturday, to give people a taste of the rich history of Old Delhi.
A statement by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) released on Thursday said the event is being organised in collaboration with Delhi Walks, an organisation specialising in conducting curated walks, and will cost Rs 500 for each walk.
The eight thematic walks will be conducted on Saturdays and Sundays this month.
In this pilot project, trained guides take people on 'culture' walks starting from various Metro stations in Old Delhi area. These walks cover several historical locations, complete with associated stories.
"The walk on Saturday will be titled 'An Empire's Tale through the Blooming Red'. As part of the project, eight such walks with different themes will be arranged on all weekends of the month of November," the statement added.
'Masjid-e-Jahanuma', 'Sair-o-Shahjahanabad', and the 'The Tales of the Traders' are the other topics which will be covered during the walks. The project may be carried further depending on the feedback of the participants, it said.
The 'Heritage Corridor' of Delhi Metro was thrown open May 28, by extending the Violet Line further from ITO station till Kashmere Gate station.
The name was given because several monuments and ruins of historical importance are located along these stations.
Bookings for Heritage Walk can be made by calling on 9899692790 or via email at share@delhiwalks.in.
