Leave any preconceptions at the door and prepare to learn how many Delhiites live.
Sanjay Colony is a small slum built on 18 acres of land located in the south of Delhi near the Bahai Lotus Temple and Iskcon temple. Spend 1.5 hours walking around and visiting small scale businesses, a small temple, a mosque and residential areas.
Learn about working and residential life and witness how despite the challenging living conditions it remains an area charged with
positive energy and community spirit. By the end of the tour you will understand how our NGO, Reality Gives, is working to support local NGOs and bring its excellent Mumbai programs to Sanjay Colony.
In the afternoon we will show you other, more traditional sights that Delhi has to offer. This portion of the tour is also available unguided with a driver. For a list of what sights we
generally see in the afternoon, see our Delhi Sightseeing Tour page. This tour is individually designed for you, and you can do and see as little or as much as you please. The tour guide, who also has detailed knowledge of the more traditional sights, will be with you for the day. He can give some suggestions for what to see, but ultimately, the itinerary is completely up to you.
