Heritage walks are often the most interesting way to experience a city, its culture and develop a deep understanding of its people. The walks are opinionated, they depend on the tour- guide to help you understand and see a place through their perspective. A perspective which changes with every guide and brings out something different in every place.

Brought to Kanpur by ‘India Heritage Walks’, this trip down Shivala Bazaar is something every Kanpurite or tourist visiting Kanpur need to take.

As a city that was the epicenter of the Indian freedom struggle, Kanpur has a rich past which is culturally significant and defining in the overall history of the country.
