Old Delhi: 10 Easy Walks

 
Gaynor Barton (Author) Laurraine Malone (Author)
Synopsis

But in spite of the downsides, Old Delhi remains the most intriguing of places to explore. There s so much here that you can never be bored. For the more adventurous tourist or New Delhi resident, walking along at your own pace, with a guidebook in hand, is still the best way of getting to know somewhere really well.

Old Delhi: 10 Easy Walks makes it easy for the traveller to navigate the streets and by-lanes of even the most tucked away parts of the city. Going far beyond the bounds of a conventional guidebook, authors Gaynor Barton and Laurraine Malone provide useful information on getting to Old Delhi itself as well as moving around within it, with individual maps for each walk and historical notes on the landmarks you pass en-route. Popular sites such as the Jama Masjid and the Red Fort have their own individual walks, but so does the Lothian Road, in the Civil Lines, and the bead-shop heaven of Sitaram Bazaar in the southwest of the city. For regular visitors to the old city, Old Delhi: 10 Easy Walks is a useful resource, but for the wide-eyed traveller who is braving the unfamiliar streets for the first time this is an unputdownable godsend.

The book serves as a helpful guide for tourists travelling to the fascinating, bewildering Old Delhi for the first time. It also packs in several pieces of information that the seasoned Delhi inhabitant might not have heard of Old Delhi: 10 Easy Walks is well-researched and provides an in-depth foray into every place and every walk that it deals with. There are details provided about routes along with route maps that have directions marked on them, as well as photographs of all the monuments that each walk describes.

The book is written in an interactive, conversational style unlike the dry informative one of regular guidebooks which appeals to the general reader.
