They take you to the majestic campus of the Red Fort in this walk.

Did you know that behind these imposing walls are hidden sad and often romantic stories of the Mughal princes, their wives, princesses and their mistresses? The gardens of the Red Fort were often the rendezvous of the amorous lovers. These meetings were kept secret from the Mughal Emperor. Do you know why?

And what fate befell on those unfortunate souls who were caught in that embrace by the 'Hijras' who guarded the imperial harems?

Do you know that the spirit of one such unfortunate Mughal princess roams inside the ramparts of a Mughal jail 300 years after she died?

Oh, these and many other stories await you when you assemble for this walk. Gripping session on the affairs of the Mughals with their wives, mistresses and other ladies. Secret liaisons that sometimes were punished with death or jail. All of this set in Red Fort.

As part of this experience, you will tour the majestic Red Fort, the adjoining Salimgarh and also a couple of gardens within the fort premises. You will imagine the scenarios when the princes met their beloveds in these gardens and what happened to them when they were found out by the Badshahs.

You will also take a tour of the Meena Bazar which used to be a favourite haunt of the lovers in those bygone days.

Price includes: Snacks (2 samosas), tea/ coffee/ cold drinks. In case you want to stay away from oily food, you can have aloo chaat.

Suited for:
Students, travellers, people interested in stories of Delhi, history lovers, people interested in stories on love and romance, fans of Mughal era.

Notes:
Since you'll walk quite a bit, please wear comfortable shoes and clothes.
