HIDDEN HERITAGE - KITE OVER DELHI
South Delhi’s residential and commercial areas are dotted with remains of Delhi’s Sultanate period (1192-1526) and to a lesser extent, that of the Mughal period (1526-1857). Hidden Heritage Art seeks to visually chronicle these with ‘Kite over South Delhi’. This has been created by the wonderfully talented Shashank Gautam, who has honed his skills at the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), working with Hidden Heritage founder Arjun Kumar.

Among South Delhi’s best kept heritage secrets in this elegant three-bay mosque within a walled compound. It is attributed to the Lodi dynasty, around the beginning of the 16th century CE – a time when mosque building traditions and design hit an acme towards the last part of the Sultanate period. Nearby run the mighty fort walls of Khilji’s Siri.
