"Sprawling Historic Gardens"

Rolling across acres, the tranquil Lodhi Gardens are as historic as they are picturesque. This sprawling garden carries within its very fabric inextricable traces of the Lodhi dynasty. Mottled with a tracery of manicured lawns, verdant foliage and mammoth trees, the gardens are steeped deep in both, natural magnificence and antiquity. A string of time-worn, enigmatic tombs are dispersed across the course of the garden, tombs which are a solemn homage to the Sayyid and Lodi sultans (kings) who ruled north India in the 15th and 16th Centuries. The Bara Gumbad sits nestled right in the heart of the garden, and gives way to a spectacular three-domed mosque, whereas the Shisha Gumbad carries within itself remnants of an ancient family; the tomb of Muhammad Shah looks nothing short of a palace, while the tomb of Sikandar Lodi features a majestic walled enclosure accentuated by lush green lawns. These tombs, with their sharp arches, glazed tiles and structural domes, are yet another testimony to the sheer genius and glory of Mughal architecture. The garden is further nourished by a tracery of water features, including trickling rivulets, and a placid lake dotted with pristine white ducks. Considered a favorite among Delhi picnickers, joggers and families, the garden is located within close proximity to Humayun's Tomb. These gardens are particularly breath-taking in the evenings, as the monuments are beautifully illuminated.
