A Custom Walk - Tawaifs of Chawri Bazar

City Guided Tours English/Hindi 2 hrs

Chawri Bazar Metro Station: Delhi,
Gate no 3, Kaccha Pandit Main Bazar, Chawri Bazar Metro Station, Delhi, NCR 110006, India

This walk is an effort to correct widespread misunderstandings about the Tawaif (highly civilized courtesan) culture.

It is important to recognize that the last 5000 years which spanned the Harappan age, the Vedic era, the Mahajanpadas, the Delhi Sultanate, the Mughal and the early British era, each had its public women who were the repository of dance and music while working in the capacity of professional entertainers.

Chawri Bazar remained a promenade street of old Delhi which housed sprawling mansions of Tawaifs. The charm of these Tawaifs brought kings, nawabs, poets and sahibs to their doorsteps. In this walk, we will try to identify the last remaining symbols of Kothas (Bordellos) in the street of Chawri Bazar and will unravel the phenomenal stories of celebrated Tawaifs such as Rupmati, Anarkali, Rana Dil, Lal Kunwar Nur Bai, Chamani Ram Jani, Uttam Bai, Firdaus Jan, Ad Begum, Alfina and Punna Bai. We will trace the downfall of this institution which was a result of the moral censorship on part of Christian missionaries, the misconstrued notion of civilizational inferiority on part of western educated Indians, and the greed to acquire the prized properties of the Tawaifs which ultimately forced them out of city limits to Brothels or Red light areas.

Meeting/Start Point: Chawri Bazar Metro Station, Gate No. 3.
