The first thing you’d probably notice in Delhi is the greenery, especially for a metropolitan city. Trees that line up the roads here will accompany you wherever you go. But if you want to stroll around, or sit and absorb the lush greenery of Delhi, there are plenty of well-maintained parks and gardens for you to explore. And if you’re lucky, you might even encounter a little piece of history in some of them. Here are some of the popular parks and gardens in Delhi:

  • Lodhi Garden: A huge garden complex that nestles the tombs of Muhammad Shah and Sikander Lodi, this one is immensely popular among Delhiites and tourists alike. Other popular structures here include domes like the Bara Gumbad and Sheesh Gumbad. You will find fitness enthusiasts here in the mornings and evenings, lots of groups who come here for picnicking and some history buffs exploring the architecture of the place. Lodhi Garden also houses beautiful bridges and a pond, which sometimes even has ducks to complete the picture. If you’re into celebrity spotting, you might find yourself in the company of some high-profile Members of Parliament and Delhi socialites.

  • Buddha Jayanti Park: Commemorative of Buddha’s 2500th anniversary of attaining nirvana, Buddha Jayanti Park holds special significance amongst buddhists.

There are classes on Buddhism, which are regularly organised here, which are very popular among foreign tourists as well. Take a stroll, surrounding by lush greenery and water-bodies and if you’re there around Spring, you might be able to catch their special Flower Show as well.
