Delhi - Lodi Gardens

Delhi's loveliest escape was originally named after the wife of the British Resident, Lady Willingdon, who had two villages cleared in 1936 in order to landscape a park to remind her of home. Today named after their Lodi-era tombs, the gardens, favoured getaway for Delhi's elite and courting couples, contain the 15th-century tomb and mosque, the strikingly different tombs of Sikander Lodi, and the Athpula (eight-piered) bridge across the lake, which dates from Emperor Akbar's reign.
