The Garden of 5 Senses Delhi

The Garden of 5 Senses

"Rejuvenate your senses with the garden of 5 senses in Delhi"

We all love sitting in a garden, enjoying nature, enjoying the fresh air and of course, meeting new people. Gardens are one of the many things that bring out the charm of every city. Speaking of gardens, have you ever heard of the garden of five senses? Neither have I. It is not just any old park. It is a space with a range of activities, attracting people to interact with each and exploration. The idea was introduced by the Delhi Tourism Transportation Development Corporation, keeping in mind the city’s requirements for leisure space for people to simply socialise and unwind.

This is one place that creates a healthy atmosphere and life to a city. It is open to everyone in society. It is located at Said-Ul- Azaid village and is close to the Mehrauli heritage area in New Delhi.  It is one of the most amazing and gorgeous places.  You must think that it is quite old or rather; it has been around for quite some time. Well, you are not entirely wrong as it was inaugurated in 2003. The king like the stand is silhouetted against the blue sky while the others lie scattered on the ground in a casual yet alluring display of nature’s wonders. It is a special ground that makes a person realise the idea of a public leisure space that does awaken the sensory response and is sensitive to the environment. 
 
The soaring stainless steel birds welcome people into the park. Have you ever gotten such a welcome elsewhere? I didn’t think so.  It is an expansive plaza that is set on the natural slopes of the site. It greets you up the spiral walkway. A temptation to explore the place greets people which of course if you must know include a visual of a troop of elephants, regaling in the water bath.
 
It is often said that people rejuvenate by simply breathing in the fresh air and discovering the wonders of the world. Well, from a certain aspect, if you were to look at it, this particular garden can be called heaven on earth. Anyways, to give you a little more detail about this particular place, let’s just say that this special place is divided into distinct areas. The garden is not alone, it has a few neighbors  like for instance, on one side of the walkway is the Khas Bagh, a garden that is created on the lines of the Mughal Garden.  It paints an amazing picture of the slow moving water which cascades in channels with flowering the fragrant shrubs and trees lined up in its path. Its central axis takes people on to the pathway of a series of fountains. Some of them are lit up by fiber optic lighting systems.
 
It captures the expression of ‘A Fountain Tree’.
Situated away from the core of the garden, people can see a food and shopping court.  The perks of going to the food court are that people can sit on the terraces while eating food.  The heady trail of fragrance which leads a person to the rocky ridge to the north where they are given the chance of being elevated amongst the rocks, a stainless steel sculpture. This particular sculpture, if one must know was inspired a pinwheel that would dance in complete happiness. 
 
There is so much to explore and discover in a garden that is often hard to miss out on. An individual definitely has to spend an entire day exploring the wonders of this magnificent place.  Take a deep breath and wander down the meandering paths to Neel Bagh, where you will find a pool of water lilies that are surrounded by pergolas covered with different colours and textures of climbing plants.   After looking at the description, it is safe to say that the name is perfect. Who would have ever thought of such a magnificent, majestic name? I don’t think I would have, even though I call myself ‘creative’. 
 
The Garden of five senses is located close to the Qutub heritage zone, which is south of Saket.
