When we talk about a convention, conference, or a gala evening, the word venue springs to mind, and before we know it, as event planners and corporates, we dial the phone numbers of our sales representatives from fancy five-star chains to block the dates, also keeping in mind the season and festivities in Delhi.
While we have no doubts about the 5 or 4-star hotels as venues, here’s the question: how often do we consider thinking outside the box, even when the Delhi weather is cheering us on?
There are gala nights held at historic libraries (such as in Zagreb), historical tramways, and fortress ruins in Europe as well. Apart from five-star hotels, the European tourist industry is geared toward promoting and maintaining these landmarks.
Therefore Delhi is the place you should go to! Our nation’s capital is an idyllic place that offers a comprehensive dose of history, heritage, culture, and tradition. However, you must receive several authorizations, but the locations will stun you. A haveli in Old Delhi, a venue so majestic that the Qutub Minar acts as a backdrop, and many other things.
Here’s a list to get you started:
The world’s tallest brick minaret, the Qutub Complex, which includes the Qutub Minar and the surrounding ancient and medieval monuments, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The tower is situated in the Mehrauli neighborhood of Delhi, India, with open space in the gardens. It would be ideal to have a cultural program that could be based on a theme related to your culture, representing yourself as one of the emperors and queens, creating an awareness of our heritage, followed by classical music and dance. The touch of history at the beginning of the event will eventually make attendees learn more about the lost history of our country. One will need 15-20 days to process an application. However, no food is allowed.
Unwind in a peaceful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Haveli Dharampura offers lasting cultural experiences, majestic archways, and classic Indian architecture while providing royal treatment. Historically, the Haveli was a residential zone, but it has now become a commercial hub. The approach to the building is a 5-foot-narrow alley that gives the impression of a nostalgic memory lane. The Haveli’s backside has the narrowest gali. The physical elements of the Haveli’s surroundings still bore the marks of history. Brackets, balconies, jharokhas, multifoliate arched gateways, carved sandstone facades, and a wooden entryway all contribute to the visual beauty of the course.
Purana Qila (Old Fort)
Purana Qila is one of the oldest forts in Delhi. Its current form was built by the Afghan king, Sher Shah Suri, on a site that was perhaps that of Indraprastha, the legendary capital of the Pandavas. Sher Shah raised the citadel of Purana-Qila with a huge city area surrounding it. The fort’s gates and cornerstones are both adorned with white and blue-tiled marbles, contributing to the fort’s visual attractiveness. Purana Qila is a heritage site because it resembles Rajasthani architecture as well as the Islamic architecture of the Mughal Empire.
The National Handicrafts and Handlooms Museum (NHHM), also known as the National Crafts Museum, is one of India’s largest crafts museums, located in New Delhi. The Ministry of Textiles, Government of India, is in charge of it. The museum is located on the Pragati Maidan’s corner, facing the Purana Qila complex. The museum’s galleries include the Tribal and Rural Craft Gallery, the Gallery of Courtly Crafts, the Textile Gallery, and the Gallery of Popular Culture, among others. The museum also has a 5-acre (20,000 m2) village complex with 15 structures representing village cottages, courtyards, and shrines from several Indian states, as well as trivial objects on display. The entire village complex was built in 1972 as part of a temporary exhibition on the theme of rural India. Several traditional craftsmen in residence at the museum can now be seen working in a designated space within the museum complex, selling their wares. The museum also has research and documentation facilities, a reference library, a conservation laboratory, a photo laboratory, and an auditorium in addition to the collection. Except on Mondays, it is open from 9.30 a.m. to 5 p.m. It may be reached via the Pragati Maidan Delhi Metro Station.
The Bottom Line:
As India’s capital, Delhi provides the basis for the multicultural lifestyle of its people. The people here blend modern values and lifestyles with traditional ones, and the culture is infused with a slew of celebrations and events.
