The acquired portion of the Haveli has been restored to its original splendor. Originally the Haveli consisted of arched corridors on three sides enclosing an open courtyard. However now only a portion of it is open for the visitors but a lot of care and effort has been put so that the visitors can relive and experience the nineteenth century grandeur. The special features of the Haveli have been highlighted like the Mughal Lakhori bricks, sandstone flooring, wooden entrance gate and chhajja in the courtyard.
One must not skip the museum inside the haveli which houses various personal belongings of the maestro that provide an insight into his life. It contains letters of Ghalib written in his own hand in both Urdu as well as English. There is also a photograph of the poet with a hookah in his hand, which is considered to be his last photograph. Besides all this, one can also find a chronology of events, selected couplets from his works (in Urdu Only), books and some other personal belongings of the poet.
Address – Gali Qasim Jaan, Ballimaran, Chandni Chowk, Delhi
How to Reach – The best way to reach here would be to take a Metro to the Chandni Chowk station and hire a cycle-rickshaw from there. One could also take local buses or hire an auto rickshaw (not recommended due to the chaotic traffic situation in Old Delhi).
