A landmark of the capital and the unique confluence of the lifestyle of urban and old Delhi, Lodhi Garden is something one can never miss while on a trip to Delhi. People staying in Delhi as residents find this place quite amusing and for people like me, who get a very few chances to visit places just for leisure, this place is an abode of tranquility and panorama.

If you are somewhat of a historian and love to visit places that carry interest of India’s glorious history, then you must come to visit Delhi at least once in a life time. The capital of India, New Delhi is something that presents you a whole new bouquet of fresh memories, which are derived directly from the rich past and dynasties of India.

It was my fourth day of stay in Delhi and I was excited to make Lodhi Garden as a part of my journey. I booked a taxi from my hotel and reached the Lodhi Garden in just about 45 minutes. As I stepped down of my taxi, I carried a packet of masala peanuts and chomped a few of them into my mouth.

I went inside the Lodhi Garden which has a rich past. The garden was built somewhere between the 15th and 16th centuries by the Lodhi rulers who were a part of Delhi during that time. The historical monuments present within the premises are worth a watch as they represent the trueness of the art and mastery of artists over their masterpieces.

The Lodhi Garden, as is its name, is a garden which is maintained till now by the ASI and Government of India. The garden can be seen flocked with yoga practitioners and evening/morning walkers running through its length and breadth and sweating profusely. Apart from being a place for recreation, the Lodhi Garden contributes to the rich past of the medieval India. There are tombs and domes placed in the midst of the garden, which were built in the memories of different Lodhi rulers.

The presence of such beautiful places in Delhi makes it a truly amazing place for vacations and leisure.
