Where there is a will,

there is a way

may not be even aware of its existence, let alone know about a small wonder named Dharampura in Old Delhi. An old and dilapidated haveli here has been restored to its original glory. Now known as Goel Sahab Ki Haveli, it is perhaps the first step to showcase to the world the architectural wonder that Dharampura was once known for.
