Take a walk through Delhi, Mumbai, and Bangalore, and discover their ancient hidden history

Delhi, Mumbai, and Bangalore. Every one of these cities is a megacity in its own right. New Delhi is the official capital of our country. Mumbai is the financial and  ‘filmy’ center. And Bangalore, the technology capital.

They may have a whole new look now, but these cities have been around a lot longer than we have. Long before their modern reputation preceded them; Delhi, Mumbai, and Bangalore, were famed for their highly decorated historical background.

If you’re a local who has more exploring to do, or if you’re planning on visiting these cities – be sure to witness the living landscape through a historical lens these heritage walks provide. Get a feel of the city before the curtain of modernity descended upon them, and learn about its immense history!
