The light and sound show at Purana Qila was introduced in 2011 and has been a huge hit ever since. It’s surprisingly well done and takes you on a journey from the Mughal era to the British period to current day Delhi.

Let The Show Begin

It’s time peel your eyes away from the Facebooks and the YouTubes of the world, just for a little while and watch this show unfold right in front of you.

Named “Ishq-e-Dilli” {Romancing Delhi}, the show depicts the historical story of the capital, and it starts off with the 11th century {time machine activated}. The animation will show the reign of Prithvi Raj Chauhan, Delhi’s {unknown to many} connection to mythology of Mahabharata and Indraprastha, and finally brings you back to present day, all with super rad laser and projection technology. Some parts are even in 3D!

#LBBTip: Don’t forget to carry a mosquito repellent, they tend to be present for the entire duration of the show.

So, We’re Saying…

If you’re in love with your hearty city and/or with lasers, you need to head over to Purana Qila and catch this bright wonder. We bet you’ll leave with a deeper connection to your precious Dilli.
