3 LODI GAR­DENS

Business Traveler (USA) - - 4 HOURS -

Next, en­joy the cool, lush beauty of Delhi’s best-loved park, Lodi Gar­dens, home to rare ex­am­ples of In­dian ar­chi­tec­ture in royal tombs, mosques and mon­u­ments that date as far back as the 15th cen­tury.

Cov­er­ing 89 acres, it is an oa­sis away from the dust, crowds and chaos that can make the cap­i­tal over­whelm­ing. It’s also the spot to watch Dil­li­wal­lahs, as the city’s in­hab­i­tants are known, at play.

Sari-clad ma­tri­archs gos­sip over cups of chai while cap­tains of in­dus­try jog past huff­ing and puff­ing, and chil­dren play in the foun­tains or among the pic­turesque ru­ins from the Lodi Sul­tanate that ruled be­fore the Mughals.

Open daily from sun­rise to sun­set.
