City of Stars

Join us for our upcoming walk of the Qutub Minar Complex, part of our ‘City as Museum’ series led by historian and author Swapna Liddle. This walk leads us through one of Delhi’s most important historic sites, its structures spanning several centuries of Delhi’s history. A special focus on the development of forms and motifs, and a discussion of little-known inscriptions, will help trace the contours of the development of a North Indian style of architecture, and its social and political underpinnings.
The participants have to buy their own entry tickets separately. The event ticket cost only covers the walk.

Swapna Liddle is a historian and author of several books on Delhi. For 25 years she has also been leading heritage walks in the city, and works for the cause of preservation of historic sites.

City as Museum Series: The programme reimagines the city as a museum with a life of its own and its visitor as the flâneur, a mindful passerby. Each walk will be unique in itself and led by an expert thoroughly knowledgeable in the subject matter and the specific urban site of concern. The series will locate and bring into discourse specific zones of engagement in Delhi and the National Capital Region that have served as a repository of local history and creative inspiration to a community of individual artists. Each walk will aim to revisit and engage with certain urban spaces as a means to claim a piece of the shared lived experience through an approach using oral dissemination and immersive participation.

Participants will have to buy their own ticket to enter the Qutub Minar Complex. The event ticket only covers the curated walk
