The Mecca of all the lovers, without places to go and extra money to
spend in Delhi, is the beautiful and serene Lodi Garden. Its original
purpose was hardly that however. It was designed over two dynasties
the Sayyids and Lodis (15-16 th century) to be a sort of
everyone-take-one graveyard for their families.
During the British times the garden went under the moniker of Lady
Willingdon Park, all that stopped with the Independence when they
reverted back to being good old Lodi garden. In 1968, the gardens were
spruced and relandscaped by JA Stein and Garrett Eckbo. There are
several tombs in this area. You can climb to the top of some of them.
However the steps are very steep and dark so it's strictly not
recommended. Apart from breaking your neck, you might end up being
bitten by a snake or something ('nuff said!).
