  • I was very impressed with this park. Not only is it a free admission and a space that is big enough to run and exercise in, but there are also a host of monuments and ruins contained within its borders. The gardens seem well maintained. The monuments range from ruins to being fairly complete. The park seems to be a favorite of locals, both people looking for a scenic photo shoot and those looking for a moment of romance. One of the best stops if you are doing Delhi on a budget or are looking for something free and different from Red Fort or the other usual attractions.
  • This place in the middle of Delhi is a wonder. It's a joggers park with lots of greenery and a small pond/lake. Many noted personalities come here for their morning evening walks. You will also find families having a small outdoor picnic, kids playing, people taking their dogs out for a walk, couples enjoying the corners. There is also some exercise equipments also available inside the park.
  • This place is one of the best and oldest fine dining options in delhi. It maintains its charm over the years. Food is excellent, and service is very professional. It is difficult to get outdoor seating without reservation.So a reservation is preferred. Must visit this place in winters.
  • It's a beautiful peaceful place where people from good backgrounds come here and relax,do recreational activities like yoga and all. It has a beautiful fish ponds where you can find swans too. Many monuments,different types of plants and herbs too you can find. It's a good place for pokemon go players.
  • In the midst of the concrete jungle that Delhi is, Lodhi Gardens are a life saver for Delhi's residents. The lush green, beautiful parks along with the beautiful tombs of the Sultanate era, this place has something to offer for everyone. A perfect place for family or group picnics, playing outdoor games or jogging or just simply idling around; this place, with it's history and nature, magically transcends the madness of the city, as if stuck in a time warp and will help you catch your breath and take control of your mad, super fast life. The Lodhi Gardens are the support system of this heavily polluted city and it won't be wrong if I compare it with the Central Park of New York or London's Hyde Park. It's a must visit for everyone living or stopping by Delhi.
