About the walk

Reading the poets of Agra can make one realise that language is not a barrier but a tool to establish human connections. Be it Nazir Akabarabadi, Ghalib, or Mir Taqi Mir, the city and its culture has been documented beautifully in poetic verses. This tradition has continued with new poets emerging and evolving from different languages and communities.

Join us on this poetry walk across the old city as we visit the birthplaces of some great poets, read and talk about the poetry of Agra, and try to understand the submergence of language within the city’s unique cultural richness.

This guided tour is free.
