Welcome to my another blog post on the 500-year-old long epic history of India, Lodhi Dynasty that ruled Delhi sultanate way back in the 15th century. At that time there was no Garden created by the Mughal rulers, only the exceptional architectural work was done in the form of Tomb of Sikandar Lodhi, Shisha Gumbad and Bara Gumbad ( Big Dome).

Later on, during the 19th century, the barren land with historic architecture was converted into a beautiful lovely garden full of plants, flowers, and trees which just doubled the beauty of this place and now it became one of the multitasking spots for the people of Delhi and for the visitors also, as this place nowadays attracts many travelers to explore the history of the country and for fitness freaks it has become the best place to do morning/evening jogging also to connect themselves with the nature.

Lodhi Gardens is a historic park spread over 90 acres in the heart of New Delhi and is now becoming a lovers point for couples as lovebirds visit this place to spend some quality time with their partner and also is one of the finest picnic spots in New Delhi. Families visit this place mostly on weekends to relax with their loved ones, to explore the beauty of nature.

Let’s start with my journey to this exceptional place located near Khan Market on Lodhi Road which is about 1.5 km walking distance from Khan market metro station. Before visiting this place I have gone through the history of this place which has helped me to understand the importance of this place in the history of India

It was around 10’o clock in the morning I reached this place, as the weather was perfect for sightseeing, there were vendors outside the main entrance gate of the park selling snacks for the visitors so I bought a pack of potato chips for myself and entered the park and after just walking 100 steps there is a pond with about 50-60 swan in it all were making an explosive snorting sound as it seems they were hungry. Moving forward there came the Tomb of Sikandar Lodi

Tomb of Sikandar Lodi

Sikandar Lodi former sultan of Delhi and the ruler of Lodi Dynasty died in 1517 CE and in the memory of his father the son Ibrahim Lodi constructed the Tomb. The tomb is now in the hands of the archaeological survey of India who take care of the tomb as it is deteriorating due to weathering action but still it looks very nice as the construction with minute-minute details on the wall of tomb makes it more historic and lets us remember the epic history of the country.

Sheesh Gumbad (Glass Dome)

On moving forward from the Tomb of Sikandar Lodi you will come across Sheesh Gumbad (Glass Dome) which was also the last lineage of the Lodi Dynasty and its construction is bit different from the other constructions of the Lodi dynasty as it is in square shaped with blended inscriptions of Islamic and Hindu verses, or the Quranic inscriptions with floral designs.

 Butterflies In Lodhi Garden

As the Lodhi park is not only for joggers or for lovers but many visitors do come here to connect themselves with nature as the park contains many trees also plants with flowers that attract many butterflies to suck the nectar of flowers and the park contains a specific section where there is maximum no of flowers and therefore you can easily watch the butterflies roaming from one flower to another.

Bada Gumbad (Big Dome)

Moving forward into the middle of the park you will see an exceptional work of art construction of Bada Gumbad which is very beautiful as the walls of the dome has Quranic inscriptions as you can see in the picture walls with red sandstone. So it was speculated that the Bara Gumbad was constructed to provide a gateway to the nearby mosque.

These epic monuments retain the history of India forever as my trip to Lodhi garden was a great mixture of history of India, Nature at its best, beautiful garden, peace, and notorious lovers

Address :-Lodhi Garden, Near Khan Market, Lodhi Rd, New Delhi
