  • I went for a short walk from the hotel and found this place. At first I thought it was just a park with lots of people enjoying themselves, but then I realised it was much more than that. Stepping in ...  more »

  • This is one of the most maintained gardens in New Delhi. You will find people from different forms of life of all generations enjoying activities. Once you enter the Lodhi Garden, you get to feel the history in its air only. Today it serves as one of the best jogger's park in Delhi. You can find a large variety of people early in the morning at Lodhi garden- some joggers while some fitness freaks practicing yoga or meditation amidst the lush green environment.
  • A place for a perfect family/friends picnic or outing. The Garden is beautiful with many monuments in between. Perfectly maintained park, an open gym, a pond with fishes and all. It's huge. You will find food/snack vendors inside. The best time to visit is dusk or dawn. It's beautiful to watch sunset while sitting on the grass.
  • It's a beautiful garden. Trees are quite good, very green. Cleanliness is the main issue. The walkways we're Sandy, it should be clean. Also lawns doesn't have grass a lot. Very important : Visitors should be control bringing their food and partying there in a groups. Or if not stopped then somebody should monitor and control the cleanliness of this wonderful garden. Put more garbage bins and sign boards to use them.
  • One of the most sought after public parks of Delhi, this well located park is a morning walkers delight. It's well maintained greens amidst some amazing Lodhi era monuments makes it a lovely experience to be spending time in. However, its becoming too crowded over the years. Too many picnickers especially on weekends and public holidays is becoming an irritant. It's a lovers delight too, as there are many cozy corners where you can spend quality and serene time, whispering sweet nothings, while holding hands with your lover!
  • Beautiful garden sprawling over a huge land space in lodhi colony. Encompassing the remains of the historic architecture of the Delhi sultanate era, it has a mosque and tombs of Lodhi rulers and other prominent people surrounded by lush greenery with beautiful flower gardens, dreamy bougainvillea, manicured lawns, majestic palm trees and a lake brimming with fishes and lotus flowers in a dozen colors. This is the place to be on a hot summer day if you are craving for some green refuge in the scorching heat or if you want to witness the past and live it vicariously through these stunning remains of what was a blend of Hindu and Islamic architecture. Apart from tourists, this place is frequented by joggers and photography enthusiasts.
