Lodi Gardens



 


What :

Spreading over 90 acres in the heart of Delhi, Lodi Gardens is a horticultural and architectural tribute to the various rulers that controlled much of Northern India during the 16th century. Lush lawns and hordes of flowers surround the numerous tombs and monuments found in the gardens.

The tomb of Mohammed Shah, the last of the Sayyid dynastyís rulers, is the earliest tomb in the garden. It was built in 1444 by Ala-ud-din Alam Shah as a tribute to Mohammed Shah.

In the middle of the gardens is the Bara Gumbad (Big Dome), which is a gateway to a three-domed mosque built in 1494 under the rule of Sikander Lodi, who the park is named for. Across from the Bara Gumbad rests the Sheesh Gumbad (glass dome). The structure takes its name from the glazed tiles used in its construction.


When :

The best weather to visit Delhiís Lodi Gardens is between October and March. High temperatures between April and June recede after cooling rains in July and September, which make the gardenís plants particularly beautiful.

The garden is a popular space for Delhiís citizensí morning walks, and the early day is a great time to people watch here.


Where :

Lodi Gardens is centrally located in Delhi. Itís best reached by private vehicle departing from your hotel while youíre on one of our luxury tours of India.


Who :

The gardens and numerous structures are simply stunning, and thereís plenty of enjoyment to be had inside Lodi Gardens for history buffs, cultural enthusiasts, and nature lovers who are sightseeing in Delhi on one of our India tours.


Appropriate Attire :

Dress for warm weather, but keep in mind that mosques generally require shoulders, arms, and knees to be covered while on holy ground.

It was a dream come true! I really enjoyed the tour, the people I met, the incredible things I saw and the wonderful well mannered and caring people from India. I have traveled extensively, I consider myself a real gobble trotter, I have participated in a lot of tour company groups but nothing like Easy Tours of India!
I arrived sick, really sick, the medications I brought with me didn't work, I called two doctors at two different hotels, they sure made the difference! They changed my antibiotics, gave me 5 more medications including an anti-allergic one and made me feel better enough, that with some effort on my part, I was able to enjoy and finish the tour.
Ali our guide was sure a gentleman... WOW! he has so much patience he could be a teacher! the gentleman driver was so pleasant and caring, especially when he noticed I was feeling so bad.
I am already planning to go back to visit South India and this time I do not plan to be sick at all.
I love India!
Specially the hotel in MUMBAI, they were the best, they took care of me really well, gave me an upgrade of a beautiful room, let me check out at 8pm and gave me free internet access. They were so and so sweet caring and nice I felt my heart broken when I said goodbye...
Chandni always called concerned about my health, thanks CHANDNI!
