“A great getaway. Take a half day and go RELAX!”
An oasis is the perfect description, this huge garden complex is right in the middle of all the craziness of Delhi. Though some of the noise of the city is still audible, overall, it is a great escape. The grounds are beautiful, and the existing ruins of old buildings add an exotic backdrop throughout the gardens. Plan on a few hours, and buy some drinks and snacks to take in with you just outside the gates. There are areas such as bamboo gardens, bonsai gardens, small lakes, forts, etc to be explored. As mentioned by others, this is definitely a place used as 'lovers lane' so avoid weekends or evenings if possible as I hear that is worse.
The gardens are very close to Qutab Minar, so don't miss out on that if you are already doing Lodi.
