Didn’t know of the morning and evening ragas at Nehru park…although I have been to the Nehru museum and planetarium in the vicinity. Thanks for this insider tip 🙂 Other parks in the list are awesome. I particularly like Lodhi Garden for a regular visit.

All the gardens look beautiful and worth visiting. I’d favorite the Garden of Five Sense. I’m in love with the name. Never really been on a tour of gardens, but if I’m ooprtune, I won’t mind a trip to India to do this.

Flo

The concept behind evoking 5 senses in a garden is so unique! I’d love to visit some of these gardens in Delhi one day – it would be incredible to people-watch, especially if they’re practicing Yoga!

The building in Lodhi Garden grabbed my attention. I feel like all of the pictures show a different side of gardens I don’t think I’ve seen. Thanks for sharing!

Ada

Every time I travel I normally don’t go to any parks or gardens. I feel like there’s always must seen places I have to see before I leave so I don’t wanna waiste time for taking a moment to relax and enjoy the nature . Which is probably not the best thing as some of them are so beautiful and I am missing out!! Thank you for sharing those! I hope I will make it to Delhi one day and if I do I’ll try to visit at least one of those wonderful gardens !!

Eve Kay

These gardens look really nice! Good to know Delhi has a number of beautiful gardens like this. I really like seeing historical things so Lodhi Garden and Mughal Garden would be very interesting. Deer Park also looks amazing with those cute deers!

Rosie

I had no idea there were so many gardens in Delhi! Beautiful photos! We’re visiting next year and will definitely check these out – I’m sure it will be a well needed break from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Bruce Schinkel

I love the breadth of garden experiences on this list! Each place has some really great features to offer its guests and I’d really love to visit each of them

Danish, I really appreciate your blog. I am from France and never have been to India but the pictures that I associate with India naturally are thousands of people bathing in a river, people dying in a mass panic and generally the image is not overly positive per se (not negative neither, don’t get me wrong, but it’s normally bad news we are hearing over here) but your blog show so much more of India and I am really changing my perception thanks to your blog. I would have never imagined that you have such beautiful gardens and so much green! Thanks a lot for your work 🙂

    Danish Akhtar
