Raj Tour

Overview

When the British decided to quit Calcutta and make Delhi the new bastion of the Raj much thought went into what it should be like. There were no two ways about it. To be built far away from the crowded and chaotic streets of Shahjehanabad, the Mughal capital,  New Delhi, the new capital was to symbolize, to the Indian people and the world, Britain’s imperialistic grandstanding as a ruler of this nation The attempt to reinforce imperialist ideals through architecture was embodied in the building of New Delhi and its iconic structures , whether it was the Viceroy’s Residence (Rashtrapati Bhawan), Parliament House, India Gate, the glittery arcade of Connaught Place he bungalows around the Secretariat buildings or the Church of Redemption.

The Raj tour is a truly breath-taking ride down Delhi’s more recent history.

Starting from the narrow labyrinthine back lanes of Old Delhi, passing through quaint old ‘socialist-style’ quarters of government employees and almost magically landing in the midst of a spectacular view of the Presidential Palace and India Gate, encircled by spotless clean, tree-lined avenues – this New Delhi cycle tour, is a very stimulating and comprehensive catalogue of the places imbued with inspirations of the people who steered the fortunes of this great capital.
