The staff here had also done the same.
It was extremely saddening to discover how Covid has affected such a delightful and aesthetic place like this. The pandemic has led to the closure of some shops thus making people lose their businesses and jobs. Handicrafts and Arts like these do not have may outlets to showcase their richness and cultural heritage. Hence, we should support such small businesses to preserve our cultural diversity in such forms. Delhi tourism is putting in full efforts to sustain this place to the best. Let us all decide to travel to such places and make some cherishable memories alongside helping the artisans. This is an initiative by Travel Links to promote ecotourism.
