The experience is an opportunity to share the different narratives that shaped this lifeline of Delhi. Its historical and religious, and more recently, its environmental imperatives are of great significance on this tour.
The Yamuna River the sacred waterway which supported the earliest known vestiges of Delhi, of Indraprastha fame, near the Purana Qila, is intrinsic to the city history and heritage to this day.
The route that you will follow is an ode to this river that has been a silent witness to Delhi’s history and is now a recurrent victim of its excesses. Starting from the little lanes of Shahjehanabad, while the city is still sleepy in its proverbial stocks passing along the magnificently formidable walls of the Red Fort we find ourselves on the meditative quiet banks of the Yamuna at Nigambodh Ghat. A visit to the famous ghats – migratory birds circling above the calm waters – unravels the ritualistic devotion with which the Hindus treat the historic river.
Despite its current struggles with pollution, the Yamuna is a goddess to the eyes of her devotees. Concluding with a memorable view of the Jama Masjid back through the streets of Old Delhi, the Yamuna Route is a true experience in the stimulating contradictions that is India.
