Cosa farete

We will start the walk at the citadel gate. After a brief stop at the inscribed map of the monument—where I will talk about the monument in general and give an outline of the walk—we will take a clockwise tour of the ground. We will pass the fortifications before reaching our first stop, the baoli. Stopping briefly to click photos, we will then walk up the stairs to the Ashokan Pillar. The top of the pyramidal structure, which houses the pillar, presents a beautiful view of the entire complex and is a great spot for photography lovers. Our next stop will be at the dilapidated mosque known as the Jama Masjid. After this, the walk will lead on to the corridor known for the worship of djinns. This is the highlight of the walk, where I will talk about how the djinns became an integral part of the history of the monument and the local people. The corridor will lead us to the ramparts that once faced the Yamuna (and currently face Ring Road). This will bring us to the final section of the walk where we will see the broken structures along the right-hand side of the fortification walls. Finally, we will rest on the lawns and end the experience with a brief chat and an interactive session with the participants.
