Mirza Ghalib was a legendary classical Urdu and Persian poet of India. The writings of this 19th century poet are distinguished not only by creative excellence, but also by the in-depth knowledge of philosophy, ethics, theology, classical literature, grammar and history that they exhibit.
The famous Haveli of Mirza Ghalib is located in Gali Qasim Jaan in Ballimaran, Delhi. Ghalib lived in this Haveli for a long period of his life after he came from Agra. While staying at this Haveli, he wrote his Urdu and Persian ‘diwans’.
This lavish Haveli was built in traditional Mughal style of architecture and consisted of arched corridors on three sides enclosing an open courtyard. Some of the unique features of the Haveli were its Mughal Lakhori bricks, sandstone flooring, wooden entrance gate and chhajja in the courtyard. Over the centuries, the Haveli has been considerably renovated and in 1999 a memorial museum has been set up within the premises. Dedicated to the great poet, the museum houses various important things related to Mirza Ghalib, which provide a great insight into his life.
