“In the G20 year, India is getting ‘world ready’ and the world is getting ‘India ready’,” he said.
Near Kinari Bazar, the haveli can be found in the heart of Chandni Chowk.
The Haveli is on Chandni Chowk, at the intersection of Gali Anar and Chatta Pratap Singh, and it is close to the historic Red Fort and Jama Masjid. The envoys who were there showed that they liked the rich Indian culture and customs.
“I am very fond of Indian culture. This is the first time that I have come here in this Haveli, on this year. It’s very good for a foreigner because when we come to places like here in Old Delhi, it’s secret doors. The gated are closed doors and this is the door to one of the secret. It’s amazing to what Mr Goel has done. I have come here before and I will be bringing my guest here to enjoy that very traditional but very natural, authentic India in hospitality,” Diana Mickeviceine, Lithuanian Ambassador to India, told ANI.
“I think the inauguration is a very commendable effort to open secrets to foreigners like me. It gives an opportunity to people to experience real India and to it bring it closer to the world. The Minister has put it very beautifully, to bring more India to the world and more World to India,” she added.
The restored haveli also has arched entrances, sandstones, and marble pillars, among other notable features. Through its physical characteristics, the haveli’s surroundings bear physical evidence of history.
A multi-affiliated arched gateway, brackets, and balconies all contribute to its aesthetic appeal.
