Lodi Gardens, Delhi

Lodi Gardens, Delhi

Lodi Gardens are a real heaven of tranquility and peace from the hustle and bustle of Delhi. These gardens are very beautiful and home to a wide variety of trees and plants. The gardens derive their name from the fact that these gardens were laid out in 1936 around four monuments built during the Lodi dynasty, the last of the Delhi Sultanate. Ibrahim Lodi, the last of the dynasty was defeated by Babur at the battle of Panipat and thus started the Mughal rule in India. The Lodi monuments add to the serenity of the environment of the gardens. Hotels of Delhi provides tour packages and arranges travel to the Lodi Gardens.
 
Another fascinating construction is the Athpula bridge (eight bridges) built in the16th century. The bridge derives its name from the eight piers it rests on. Though not much is known about the bridge, it is believed to have been built during the reign of Mughal emperor Akbar. These gardens were relocated in 1936 on a site that was previously a village. Originally known as the Lady Willingdon Park, it was renamed Lodi Garden after Indian Independence in 1947.
 
The monuments around which the gardens are laid out are Muhammed Shah's Tomb, Sikander Lodi's Tomb, Sheesh Gumbad and Bara Gumbad. The tomb of Mohammed Shah, the last of the Sayyid rulers, is the earliest of these and was built in 1444 by Ala-ud-din Alam Shah to pay a tribute to Muhammed Shah.
