Forget The Lodhi: Delhi's Got A 90-Acre Heritage Park Right Next To Humayun’s Tomb

Delhi just got another heritage park to rival the existing Lodhi Garden – the Sunder Nursery. It’s a massive garden, spread across 90 acres of lush greens and has 15 Mughal monuments, 280 tree species, 80 bird species, 36 butterfly species.

New Picnic Spot?

We get excited like little children whenever we happen to go to a park, let alone massive gardens like the Lodhi or Nehru Park. So, when we got to know about the Sunder Nursery opening to the public, we had to go check it out.

We entered the garden to sprawling greens, symmetrical walkways, and an ancient Mughal monument right in the middle of our line of sight—instant Insta. On the other side of the monument, geometric flowerbeds and fountains made of marble made the view.

We had to walk quite a bit just to get an idea about the scale of this garden; but it was well worth it. Sunflowers, Sweet Williams, Marigolds and so many more colourful flowers {we forgot to learn the names of early in school} populate the whole park.

The Aga Khan Trust for Culture {AKTC} gave this old Mughal garden a facelift and reopened it as a heritage park {the process of which had been going on for about 10 years}. They also plan to add a cafe, washrooms, and garden houses to exhibit the wide variety of flora.
