The best time to visit the Lodhi gardens is late February and early March. The flowers are in full bloom, there is still a nip in the air and generally, you will find quite a few happy faces here.

If you are lucky, you may even spot some music and dance performances.

These gardens are so named because a couple of Lodhi dynasty rulers are buried here.

This building has several beautiful arches. If you have an HDR enabled camera, then you can take superb photographs.

Look at these beautiful arches. There is symmetry here.

There is a similar looking mosque in the Mehrauli Archaeological Park but this one takes the honors.

My guess is that this so-called Mosque was a Hindu palace/ temple earlier. Look at the pillars; these have Hindu motifs.

Here is another view of the central chamber of the same mosque.

If you know Arabic or Persian, then I would request you to translate this script for me, please.

Also, notice the small sunflower pattern on one of the sides of this arch. Interesting, isn’t it?

I am not sure whether you can notice the blue tiles on this building. These are 500 years old and have survived all these years.

The tall towers on the terrace are called ‘flower pots’ or ‘guldastas’ and are found in many Mughal/ Muslim buildings of Delhi.

The Lodhi dynasty ruled North India from the 1480s till 1527 when it was defeated by the Mughals in the First Battle of Panipat.

The yellowed leaves of the Neem tree in Sikandar Lodi’s tomb have made these steps look beautiful

When I climbed up these steps, I found man, a woman and a drone!
