It’s literally the best time of the year now, and we’re totally getting into the festive feel! With so many Dussehra celebrations going on in the city, we’re personally super excited to go attend the one at Shri Ram Lila Committee for a special reason!
According to legend, Bahadur Shah Zafar, the Mughal Emperor, started this Ramlila celebration around 180 years ago, making it one of the oldest Dussehra celebrations in Delhi!
Their Ramlila show is unique and performed in the traditional way. The dressed-up actors parade through Old Delhi every day prior to every Ramlila show. Though the residents of Old Delhi might have lost interest in this parade, visitors find it to be quite the show!
Since we haven’t been a part of this celebration till now, we’re oh-so-excited to go attend it and be a part of this!
