Golden Triangle Tour With A Human Face Today, proceed on a unique slum tour

In the slums of Sanjay Colony, the sky is only as wide as the lane below. Stacks of matchbox houses rise three or four storeys, a few feet apart from each other. This appears like jagged strips similar to machines at the garment factories where many residents of this slum work. In our special tour, the focus is not on the poverty – the idea is to engage with the local community and see their way of living. Through this tour, visitors also witness a wide range of activities like: embroidery, bakery, clothes recycling as well as manufacturing, and many more. These items are created in innovative ways and in very small spaces!! One could learn a lot from the people in the slums. There is a sense of community that exists in the area. A lot of people have come here from different parts of the country to live in this tiny neighborhood of Delhi, and this diversity is apparent in the temples and mosques that stand side by side. At the end of this inspiring session, the tour would give you a delicate insight into human relationships, and, the indomitable human spirit that seeks to survive as well as thrive against the harshest challenges posed by destiny.

Then, we will continue our expedition with a drive to the Lutyens Delhi which is considered to be the corridors of power and serenity. Our tour includes a drive pass through the Rashtrapati Bhawan, this vast, intricate work of mixed Mughal and Western architecture is one of the largest presidential residences in the world We will also visit the Parliament House as well as witness the majestic India Gate – a powerful tribute to our brave soldiers.

Following our drive pass to the Lutyens Delhi area, we will now visit the Humayun’s Tomb (1586), built by the Emperor’s widow Hamida Banu Begam, also known as Haji Begam, commenced the construction of his tomb in 1569, fourteen years after his death. It is the first distinct example of proper Mughal style, which was inspired by Persian architecture.

Later, we cross the city and into the walled gates of the Old city with visits to the Jamma Mosque (1650) and drive through the fabled area of Chandni Chowk (aptly translates to Moonlight Square) where the throngs of shoppers and vendors meet in the oldest area of Delhi. Visit the Raj Ghat and nearby ghats where the founder of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi and thereafter Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi were cremated.

The highlight of this tour would be a ride on cycle rickshaws. Now these are 3-wheel cycles with a sofa seat at the back. The Rickshawala (Rickshaw driver) sits on a small cushion in the front and two passengers on the sofa seat behind. This is a remarkable way to explore and picture the hustle and bustle as well as the color of the narrow winding streets bursting with people and pavement shops selling wares of all description - including a laughing set of dentures. The ride would be accompanied by peals of laughter both from the passengers as well as the onlookers. (Please do accept that some shops are closed on Sundays)
