About in Lodhi Gardens
The Lodhi Gardens are located 7.2 km by road to the South of New Delhi Railway Station. The gardens are open from Sunrise to Sunset every day of the year and entrance is free. This is a very popular spot for local people to walk in and as a location for family picnics.
The buildings at the centre of Lodhi Gardens date back to last Sultanate of Delhi, the Lodhis, who reigned from from 1451 to 1526. The most impressive of these buildings is the Bara Gumbad, which means ‘large dome’ and as the name suggests this is building with a large domed roof, which also leads onto a mosque with three smaller domes. Opposite the Bara Gumbad is the Shisha Gumbad which is another large domed building. There are also some smaller but still impressive buildings in the gardens which were used as tombs. All these buildings are historically important as few other buildings from that period remain intact, and they are the best example of the architectural style of that period which blended Hindu and Islamic features into the overall design of each building. The park around the buildings, which covers an area of over 360,000 square metres, was added later during the 1930s by the British. Following the demise of the Lodhi Sultanate the area around the buildings had been settled, and two entire villages were removed, and residents evicted, to create the Lodhi Gardens. The gardens are a wonderful cool shaded green space near the centre of one of the world’s most polluted cities. We suggest that you visit mid-morning when the weather is cooler to better appreciate the Lodhi Gardens and the buildings within.
