In January 2019, Shangri-La’s – Eros Hotel, New Delhi in partnership with local charitable organizations launched Reviving the Shangri-La of Delhi to highlight the importance of the destination’s cultural heritage.
On January 18, the hotel held its first educational series with children from Bal Sahyog, an organization that helps underprivileged and orphaned children. Colleagues led children to the Humayun’s Tomb, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the top cultural and historic sites in the city. Built in 1570, the tomb was erected for Mughal Emperor Humayan and was the first garden tomb on the Indian subcontinent. The tomb inspired several major cultural innovations, culminating in the construction of the Taj Mahal.
“The kids and hotel colleagues enjoyed the first series of this walk and learned the cultural significance of Humayun’s Tomb,” said Rasshe Goswami, communications manager of social media marketing at the hotel.
Thank you to the hotel’s dedication in highlighting the destination’s colorful heritage with members of the community!
