Lodi Gardens

The Lodi Gardens are…gardens. There is a rose garden (not in bloom right now), a bonsai garden (closed today), quite a few tombs (built by various sultans, emperors, and other people of significance, or at least people who thought themselves significant enough to waste–I mean invest–money in a large burial enclosure), a good deal of wildlife (apparently there are a lot of green parrots, but I saw a grand total of two, and they were a long ways of in a tree), and nice landscaping and plantlife abounding.  If you were a botanist or a zoologist, you might be in heaven.  And even if you’re not, it might still be pretty heavenly, at least if you need a change from bustling city life.

A squirrel--there are a great deal of these in India, but especially in Lodi Gardens

Oh, and apparently, dating couples like visiting the gardens.  We did see quite a few couples, hidden amongst the trees or sitting on park benches together.  I suppose it would be rather romantic…?  Although, there is a footbridge…
