Overview
More
300 INR per person ($5 equivalent). Delwara, also known as the 'City of Gods', is no ordinary village, and The Delwara Heritage and Community Walk is not your typical walking tour. We invite you to delve into Delwara's rich cultural heritage and gain a broader understanding of small-town India on its path to development! The Walk is in many ways a window into contemporary India, where high caste and low caste, Hindu and Muslim, rich and poor, village and city, tradition and modernity coexist side by side. Unlike other heritage walks, our walk goes beyond physical heritage to explore Delwara's social inheritance. The Walk was founded in 2013 as a project of Seva Mandir's local Youth Center. It is guided by local young adults, and was mainly researched through extensive interviews with Delwara's people. It seeks not only to provide a livelihood to the guides, but to make them owners and teachers of their village, the very definition of empowered and engaged citizens.

Wonderful tour of Delwara with well trained guide Himmat. Gave us a real taste of life in India and the impact an NGO like Seva Mandir can have to give hope to local people. Highly recommend visitors go on the walk.
