Delhi Tourism took to its official Instagram handle and shared about the event. In the caption, it wrote, “Step into the rich tapestry of Delhi's history and culture with the inaugural walk of the DELHI TOURISM WALK FESTIVAL! “

If you don’t know how to pick from the many available walks, here are a few that you can choose from.

Sham-e-Tughlaqabad

This walk gives you a chance to explore the history of Tughlaqabad Fort. It was built by Ghiyasuddin Tughlaq in 1321. The aim was to build a fort that would defend the Sultanate of Delhi. Therefore, he demanded that labourers build high walls, battlements and semi-circular bastions. This helped in identifying enemies and attacking them.
