New Delhi: Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Saturday launched a Metro Adventure Club to promote adventure and sports activities among its over 8,500 employees.
The adventure club was launched by taking out a ‘Heritage Walk’ from Chawri Bazar Metro station that holds the distinction of being the deepest Metro station of the Delhi Metro network.
Located in the old city, Chawri Bazar Metro station is also known as ‘Time Machine’ station because the swanky Metro station below the surface, complete with escalators, lifts, air-conditioning and all major amenities, is in an area that is marked by centuries old buildings and densely packed streets.
The Heritage Walk organised in association with Delhi Walks was flagged off by DMRC managing director Dr Mangu Singh who also joined it. The Walk covered historical landmarks including Jama Masjid, Red Fort, Gauri Shankar Mandir, Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib and the famous Paranthe Wali Gali.
The Delhi Metro Adventure Club will organise a visit of Yamunotri and Gangotri next month.
