Lodhi Garden

“A morning walker paradise”

The Lodhi gardens were laid out in 1936 around four monuments of the Lodhi dynasty - Mohammed Shah's Tomb, Sikander Lodhi's Tomb, Sheesh Gumbad and Bara Gumbad. It is spread over 90 acres of land. It contains, Mohammed Shah's Tomb, Sikander Lodhi's Tomb, Sheesh Gumbad and Bara Gumbad architectural works of the 15th century by Lodhis, an Afghan dynasty, that ruled parts of northern India and Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of modern day Pakistan, from 1451 to 1526. Bara Gumbad and an adjacent mosque were constructed in 1494 during the reign of Sikander Lodhi. Sheesh Gumbad, which stands opposite, was built around the same time. And the tomb of Sikander Lodi was built by Ibrahim Lodi in 1517. It has a striking resemblance to the tomb of Mohammed Shah except for the chhatris which are found along the dome.

Lodhi garden was re-designed meticulously by JA Stein and Garrett Eckbo in the year 1968 and that's how it got the present shape. This site is now protected by the Archeological Survey of India.
