Lodhi Garden, situated near the Khan Market in New Delhi, is
constructed during the Lodhi era in the 15th century. Covering
around 90 acres, Lodhi Gardens is the resting place of the two popular leaders
Sikander Lodhi and Mohammad Shah. Lodhis were the rulers of Punjab and north
India in the 14th and 15th centuries. Currently, the
Archeological Survey of India is responsible for the preservation and security
of the area. The garden is an ideal destination for tourists and Delhiites. In
addition to being a tourist spot, it is often considered as the best area for a
morning or evening walk. The serene surroundings and a pleasant atmosphere
around the lush-green garden fill you with positivity.
Located right in the center of the Lodhi Garden is the big
dome (Bara Gumbad). The Gumbad served as the main entrance to the three
attached mosques at that time. Near the central courtyard, tourists can spot
the remnants of the huge water tank. Lodhi Garden also houses a Shisha Gumbad,
which has graves. However, the people resting in these graves are not known.
Since only a small portion of the ancient architecture has
remained, Lodhi Garden is considered an essential area for preservation.
Mohammad Shah’s tomb located in the gardens is so clear that it could be
spotted from the road as well. Overall, the site is a wonderful example of the
Muslims and Hindu style of architecture. Fortunately, Lodhi’s garden is open
throughout the year. Tourists can schedule a visit to this tourist location
anytime they want. The architecture depicts the wonderful job of Lodhis and
Sayyidis. Earlier, the park was recognized as Lady Willingdon Park. After India
got Independence, it was renamed. Explore the Islamic and Hindu architecture at
Lodhis garden or take a stroll around the park for some serene time.
