Located near the Safdarjung tomb and Khan Market of Delhi, the Lodhi Garden is a luscious garden that houses the tombs of Sayyid ruler Mohammed Shah and Lodhi king Sikandar Lodhi. The construction of this great work of architecture took place under the Lodhi reign sometime in the 15th century. In addition to encompassing the final resting place of two great leaders, the Lodhi Garden also has the Shisha Gumbad and Bara Gumbad within its perimeter. The architecture here shows a mix of work by Sayyidis and Lodhis and is the epitome of magnificent engineering that echoes of Delhi's illustrious history. Currently, this place is maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India.
Lodhi Garden was once known as 'Lady Willingdon Park', but was renamed after India gained independence from the British. The contrast of sombre mausoleums against the lush greenery of the gardens makes it a favourite among tourists and locals alike. Along with being an architectural site, it has also become a hub of morning and evening exercise routine for people living nearby.
An Eight Pier Bridge close to Sikander's tomb, one of the last Delhi constructions resides here as well. Built by the Mughal Emperor Akbar, this construction has seven mighty arches amongst which the central one is the largest.7. Heritage Walks and Guided Tours
