    Arvind was a godsend during our trip to India. He helped streamline our hectic travel schedule which allowed us to relax and enjoy the trip. I would highly recommend his agency to anyone traveling to India.

    a peep into the erstwhile posh corner of old Delhi. Houses still preserve the ancient and unique architecture very well

    When the Mughal Emperor Shahjahan shifted his capital from Agra to Delhi, he built the Red Fort and the Jama Masjid as two pivotal structures for the new city of Shahjahanabad. Members of the royal family, especially Shahjahan’s wives and daughters, added further structures, including mosques (Akbarabadi, Fatehpuri), a sarai (Jahanara Begum’s sarai), and gardens. Of the last-named, one of the major gardens (others were laid out by Jahanara and Akbarabadi Begum) was the one laid out by Roshanara Begum, one of Shahjahan’s daughters. Roshanara would go on to be a confidant of her brother Aurangzeb and a support when he rebelled against Shahjahan and made a bid for the throne.

    Later, when Roshanara died (in 1671) she was buried here, in the garden she had laid out. Her tomb, in the form of a four-sided pavilion with a simple grave in the centre, is in the middle of this sprawling park. Only the tomb enclosure is within the jurisdiction of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI); the rest of the park is handled by the DDA. The outer sections have lots of trees, some play areas and outdoor gyms, a large playing field for football matches etc, and so on. If you walk around the back towards the large depression there (this was once a water channel, and they’re now planning on making it an artificial lake, with boats for hire), arm yourself with a stout stick: there are aggressive monkeys around.
    No entry fees is charged.

    If you only visit Roshanara’s tomb, which is very close to the entrance, it won’t take you more than ten minutes or so. If you’re interested in Mughal architecture, do follow the dried water channel leading from one side of the tomb to gate #2 of the park: this is a Mughal era gate, and the outside of it has traces of some beautiful and unusual tilework.

    The foot loose stands for great dance type. The dance troupe and teacher would make the team dance very well by their time tested dancing and teaching techniques
