Haveli Dharampura

Last updated: 27 December, 2023

Painstakingly restored from dereliction, this 19th-century haveli, or merchant’s mansion, is tucked away in the narrow atmospheric lanes and alleys of Old Delhi near Chandni Chowk.

Distinguished by its central courtyard overlooked by balconies and galleries, fluted archways and colonnades lead off into heritage-style rooms and suites. Many of these have their own decorative pillars and arches, and all are equipped with solid vintage-style furniture.

The roof terrace offers views across the Old Delhi skyline to the Jami Masjid, while in-house experiences range from classical dance and music performances to kite-flying and neighbourhood walks.

Staying in the old town offers the chance to really immerse yourself in an authentic part of the city, but most of the main sights are a taxi ride away.

Surrounding area

In some ways Old Delhi is not for the faint hearted. Many of the streets around Dharampura are narrow, houses and buildings are packed cheek-by-jowl, while the space and greenery of New Delhi seem almost of another country.

Yet Old Delhi is extraordinarily atmospheric and vibrant, its overall feel several notches closer to the medieval world of its Mughal founders when it was known as Shajahanabad. In the midst of all this, Dharampura is a veritable oasis.
