A glimpse of Delhi’s heritage
Haveli Dharampura by WelcomHeritage opens with great excitement among the travel industry. Located close to the Jama Masjid, it is a unique experience for all heritage lovers.
is where Tree Leaf steps in. I believe that many small standalone properties lack the ability and band-width to position their property effectively on social media and in the online space, both of which are critical for success. Branding, reputation management, website development and up-gradation are also not given the importance they deserve,” says Anand.
Haveli Dharampura by WelcomHeritage recently opened its doors at Chandni Chowk in New Delhi. The haveli in particular dates to 1887 AD. It has 13 rooms which include three Jharokha rooms, four Diwan-e-Khas rooms and six Shah Jahan suites. It has two restaurants, ‘Lakhori’ and rooftop ‘Baradari’, serving Indian, Mughlai, Continental and local street food.
Talking about the USP of the property, Siddhant Goel, Owner, Haveli Dharampura, says, “it’s not exactly a hotel but a monument in itself. It will be a very different and new experience for all the guests. This is a place where one can stay, eat, organise exhibitions and cultural programmes. One can feel calm amidst the chaos of Chandni Chowk.” Goel says they are involving travel agents to attract foreign as well as domestic visitors.
Vijay Goel, President, Heritage India Foundation, and Former Member of Parliament recalls that they took over the two centuries old property when it was in a deplorable condition. “With six years of hard work, we have been able to restore it. One can experience the true ambience of a haveli here as we have included outdoor activities like kabootarbazi (pigeon flying) and patangbazi (kite flying),” he says.
Sunil Gupta, CEO, WelcomHeritage Hotels, says to flag this haveli is a moment of pride for them. “WelcomHeritage is right now operating 42 properties. Our current agenda is to spread the brand and open properties in locations where we are not present like in Karnataka, Odisha, UP and MP,” he adds.

Sunil Sikka, HeadMarketing & Business development, WelcomHeritage Hotels, is optimistic about this property in the heart of the national capital. “We are happy that we have something in the heart of the city which we never had. Everybody is thrilled about the property and I am sure that this haveli will be the most popular one in Delhi and will definitely do well.”
