Overview

The Shah Jahan Tour is a classic option for an exhilarating glimpse into the life and times of the great Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan and the 1500 acre expanse of his capital – Shahjahanabad in the 17th century. 

Highlights

  • A history tour into the times of the Mughals, when they ruled the capital know as Shahjahanabad back then.
  • A guided tour of all the landmarks of historical importance.
  • See the Red Fort, Jama Masjid, Spice market and Civil Lines.
  • Visit former British colonial area as a sharp contrast to hectic Old Delhi.

 

Detailed Overview

Today, when you pass through its four-hundred-year-old web of alleys held together with great big meshes of electric cables and infused with the smell of brewing tea and simmering breakfast curry, you see a mind-boggling co-existence of the past and the future, competing for your attention.

Emerging from this rainforest, thick with traditional architecture- typical of Shah Jahan’s time, you will find yourself in a Delhi of another time while you also see the Red Fort, Jama Masjid, the Spice Market and tranquil Civil Lines, the former British colonial area as a sharp contrast to hectic Old Delhi.
