The current state is no signal of it's former glory
Mar 2018 • Couples
Coronation Park, on the banks of Yamuna River is one of the most important landmarks in colonial history and it is a shame that the current state is poor. Coronation Park is the site of the coronation of British Monarchs and viceroys and also the site of legendary Delhi Durbars. Delhi Durbars were the meeting of the princes from all states of India and the monarch of UK/ viceroy. The site must have seen some exemplary flair and pomp back in the day, but currently it is just an open ground. The capital city of Delhi got it's existence thanks to the Durbars held at this very place. I was here in March, while visiting Delhi, and came across the park during a visit to a relatives house. The current state was such that it was more of a barren ground where the young played cricket. There is a small memorial and column, but nothing beyond that. There is a lack of information across the board and it is a bit disappointing. I would come back again and hope that the concerned authorities bring more attention to the glory of coronation park rather than just leave it as a barren piece of land.

Origin of Delhi
Sep 2016 • Friends
We can say that the foundation of Delhi is laid here. as this is the place where the capital was shifted from Calcutta during the British time. Now even though is it not a famous place, bit still it has got historical importance

Foundation of New Delhi was laid here. Today it is a desolate place with abandoned statues which are in bad shape.

This Corantion Park saw the British grandeur at its best three times when Imperial Durbars were held at this site on 1st January, 1877 to declare Queen Victoria as Empress of India, on 1st January, 1903 to celebrate coronation of Kind Edward VIII and then, in the presence of King George V, the King of England on 11th December, 1911 announcing shifting of British capital from Calcutta to Delhi and laying the foundation stone of New Delhi here.
This place of the park was to be the Viceroy House but later on this was shifted to present Rashtrapati Bhawan in New Delhi as this place was not found suitable for the new capital.
Today there are 7 marble statues, including that of King George V, which was installed at the canopy next to India Gate and later on shifted here. There are six other statues but there is no description and statues look damaged.
Except for these statues there is nothing else and the place gives an impression of desolation, disuse and neglect. Unless very keen on getting the feel of the place, one can avoid this place.
There is a memorial at the place of Durbar in the form of an obelisk with steps on all four sides, with a badly spelled plaque which misspels common words like allegiance and all U are wrongly replaced by V, making it a bad case of our neglect of history and heritage.
