Our expert hosts, known as Monument Friends®, Heritage Heroes™, Kathakar®, Heritage Enthusiasts®, Tourprenuer®, and Heritage Walk Leader®, will lead you on an unforgettable adventure through the Northern Ridge. This area is packed with landmarks related to the mutiny, providing you with a unique opportunity to witness the physical aftermath of this significant event.
As you walk with us, you’ll hear fascinating stories and incidents related to the uprising, which has been considered the First War of Independence. You’ll learn how this event assumed national importance with the participation of people from different sections of society from all over India.
The Northern Ridge, which was once a reserved forest fenced in by the British, is now home to the earliest cantonment of the British, much of which has been taken over by Delhi University. You’ll get a chance to explore this area and see how it has changed over the years.
The 1857 Mutiny Trail is an incredibly moving experience, particularly when experienced under the morning light or the setting sun. The summer of 1857 shook the nation and its colonial rulers so violently that it led to a broad restructuring of the nation, which was soon to be passed into English hands. Our tourism ecosystem endures value through culture and heritage, involving communities to reveal India’s past.
