Lodhi Gardens, The Garden of Five Senses… and others

Although Delhi is considered one of the most polluted cities in the world, the capital has some parks and gardens for fresh air.

The Lodhi Gardens were built by the Sunni dynasty of the same name in the 15th century.

This park covers nearly 36 hectares and contains the tombs, or rauza, of influential sultans, including those of Mohammed Shah and Sikandar Lodi. Octagonal, domed, and surrounded by several kiosks with cupolas, the tomb of Sultan Mohamed Shah is unique in Indo-Muslim architecture. In the south of the city, albeit a bit further out, is the Garden of Five Senses, which contains various floral installations on the theme of awakening sensations. It will surprise you with its tranquillity and serenity. You traverse a Mughal-style garden, a vegetal rainbow, a bamboo courtyard, a garden of stones...

Finally, head towards gigantic Deer Park where a bucolic stroll awaits you in bohemian Hauz Khas village. You may come across deer, monkeys, parrots, and rabbits.
