Don’t hesitate to reach out to us! We are ready and waiting to hear from you.
Leave any preconceptions at the door and prepare to learn how many Delhiites live.
Sanjay Colony is a small slum built on 25 acres of land located in the south of Delhi near the Bahai Lotus Temple and Iskcon temple. Spend 2 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. 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: you can do and see as little or as much as you please. The tour guide, who also has detailed knowledge of the main sights, will be with you for the day. He can give some suggestions for what to visit; but ultimately, the itinerary is for you to craft.
*Please note that it’s not possible to take photos while in Sanjay Colony to respect the residents’ privacy
Many Sanjay Colony families work in the clothing industry. See how materials are painstakingly separated to be recycled and then observe the many factories making the finished items.
Visit a small Hindu temple where you will learn about the importance of religion in the residents’ lives.
Uncover the realities of residential life as you wander the narrow lanes with your guide.
Learn about education in Sanjay Colony, what local NGOs are doing to fill the gap and what Reality Gives is doing to support the local education ecosystem.
In addition to getting an overview of the maze-like tour route, you will get a stunning view of Sanjay Colony!
The list of sights to see is endless, and you certainly won’t be able to fit them all into one afternoon. Lodhi Gardens, Qutab Minar, Humayun’s Tomb, President’s Palace and Gandhi Smriti are just a few of them.
As this is a private tour only, we will pick you up and drop you off at your hotel / residence
