I hope my Lodhi Garden Photoblog inspires travelers to visit this garden and spend a few quiet hours here.
Lodhi Garden Photoblog
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.
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.
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?
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.
