Nicknamed as ‘Mecca of lovers’ or ‘Joggers Paradise’, this 90 acre garden is beautifully landscaped with well laid pathways and plants all along .The design of the garden, planting of trees and the placing of pathways was done in such a way that the structures stand out and has been laid on the principles of the English landscape. Monuments in the garden include:
Muhammad Shah’s Tomb, built in 1444 by Ala-ud-din Alam Shah,
Sheesh Gumbad, with beautiful glazed blue tiles,
Bara Gumbad, with a massive dome and a mosque on one side and a rest house on the other built in 1494 during the reign of Sikandar Lodhi,
Sikandar Lodhi’s Tomb built in 1517 in the middle of a fortress,
Athpula bridge built during Mughal Emperor Akbar’s reign, etc.
One of the best ways to spend your weekends here with friends and family. As we walk through the winding paths within the gardens, we take a step back in time to understand how the Sayyid, Lodhi, Mughal and British Eras shaped the history and present blueprint of Delhi.
The Lodhi Garden is known for its beautiful landscape and flora. It attracts people from all walks of life and ages. Nestled within the gardens are monuments from four historic eras, which give a glimpse into the history of Delhi. Each monument has a unique signature of the architecture of that period. It is rightly said by a historian, Lucy Peck, that the climax of the Sayyid and Lodhi tombs can be clearly found in the tombs in the garden.
The Lodhi Gardens is a haven of natural heritage including a hundred species of trees such as Bottle palms, Palaash, Mango tree, Jamun tree etc, many birds including parakeets, mynah, woodpeckers, barbet, hoopoe, kingfisher etc, flowers and butterflies. There are many things that the place offers such as National Bonsai Park and the butterfly conservatory.
