about

A traditional fair celebrated in the city of Delhi, the Phoolwalon ki Sair is organized every year in Mehrauli. Literally ‘the festival of flower sellers’ there are weeklong festivities at Qutb Sahib’s dargah & Yogmaya temple, kite flying, qawwalis & wrestling matches. This walk shares stories behind the festival, legends of the Pandavas, the wonders of the dargah of Qutb Sahib & the political turmoil in the Mughal dynasty. We walk through landmarks in Mehrauli Village, like a step well where water smelled of sulphur, a tank where Prophet Muhammad left a mark, a khanqah of eunuchs, a pleasure palace of the Mughals and a still empty grave meant for the last Mughal emperor.
