    Awesome

    A very informative book by S Liddle. I will highly recommend this book to those who are interested in knowing Delhi by simply having a walk.
    My walk of 'Qutab Minar Complex' and 'Mehrauli Archaeological Park' was really awesome and I had the chance to see everything written in the book.
