PEACE IN DELHI –
A trip to Lodhi Gardens
Delhi’s plentiful parks provide a refreshing respite from the city, and #LodhiGarden is the most extensive. This vast 90 acre expanse is peppered with the remains of a variety of historical monuments from the 14th century Tughlaq dynasty (which ruled the pre-Mughal Delhi Sultanate) up to the 16th century Mughal Period, making it a popular place for sightseeing as well as relaxing. The British developed Lodhi Garden in 1936 as a landscaped setting for the monuments. It was called Lady Willingdon Park but the Indian
Government aptly renamed it Lodhi Garden following independence from the British in 1947. The name reflects the garden’s prominent monuments from the Lodhi dynasty, the last ruling dynasty of the Delhi Sultanate.
