- The architecture inside is just astonishing, the sense of the detail, the marble work, the dorures, it is just sublime. There is a very nice ludic path to understand the story behind this philosophy.

- When my daughter from USA visited us recently, we planned to visit Delhi and at that time there were reports in the newspapers that Prime Minister had renamed the Mughal garden with some extra features and so we visited this garden, which is now known as AMRIT UDYAN, which means Garden of Nectar. As per the new procedure, the slot for the visit is to be booked online in advance and my daughter did it accordingly. From Ghaziabad we hired a cab and it took about 90 minutes to reach the main gate of the garden, which has recently been changed for the purpose of parking and security. There was heavy security. We were thoroughly frisked and joined the que for entry to the garden. No food items and bags including ladies purses are allowed to be taken by the visitors inside. Of course, small water bottles were allowed. All visitors are directed to follow que and the route manned by security staff was to be strictly followed. The garden is really very beautiful but it was very much crowded and so the photography is also difficult because of movements of people. There are different sections for different types of flowers and herbal plants in the garden. Origin of all these plants with their names are depicted for students of botany to understand. Some of the plants are of rare variety. We took some photographs with the background of President's house or Rashtrapati Bhavan. The cafeteria is also available that provides many types of snacks, soft drinks, tea and water etc. This garden opens around last week of January or early February, i.e., spring season for about a month every year when the weather is pleasant and always draws a lot of crowd. The entry is free but online booking is a must.Written March 14, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Great birding spot.
some expected species, some good surprises. Amazing rain dance by peacocks, flocks of barbets...Written June 29, 2023
- One of the best childhood memories with all cousins and elders were created here. Simple park, safe and clean, ample swings and very good walk ways. A water pool stretching within the park used to have water and a dummy crocodile (till 1995). The aquarium zone has been fun and that can be made better - add a voice feature to learn about stored fishes. May be put some mechanical puppets, clowns, traditional (life-size) dolls, folks etc. People can pose with them and take photos.
Appu Ghar used to have a clown which used to laugh and move after we dropped in a coin. something like this!
I hope the authorities never make it a contemporary westernized unsafe park in the name of modernization.
The park is walking distance from India Gate and has easy access.
Old park culture symbolizes the purest love and affection we had as kids towards fellow kids and animals in the parks around us.Written February 4, 2023
- This park is interesting place to see an Indian style green space. Playground for children, areas to stroll, nice trees in a variety of species, seasonal flowers.Written February 7, 2023
- Visited today, means first Sunday of dec2023, I did online ticket booking, which was very easy and comfortable one day before. Ample Parking space available at the zoo.
Eatables are not allowed inside the zoo, however water bottles are allowed. I opted Battery operated vehicle to roam around the zoo, which was a nice experience.
Overall good experience, but entry gates are not so flowless, it's a time taking process, long queue and mismanagement observed...Written December 3, 2023

- Located at Connaught Place just across Rajiv Chowk metro station, it is a happening place where people visit with their friends and families. Many cultural and musical events are organized here, the added attraction is the Indian flag. Good place to hangout for a couple of hours.Written May 8, 2021
- Talkatora Gardens was originally ‘Talkatora Bagh’, a Mughal garden named for a ‘taal’ (lake) which was shaped like a ‘katora’ (bowl). Designed in the form of the traditional Mughal garden, the bagh used the gentle slope of part of the Delhi Ridge to create a terraced garden. Like the better-known Mughal gardens at Srinagar or Pinjore (and within Delhi, the Shalimar Bagh), this too has several terraces, each with a water channel flowing down the middle, flanked by flowerbeds and trees.
Talkatora has a historical significance, too: in 1737, an important battel was fought at this site: the Battle of Delhi, in which the Marathas defeated the Mughal forces and took control of Delhi.
Today, little remains of the Mughal garden except the layout, and some ruins at the very farthest end, which include two domed pavilions and some scattered walls. The channel and the pavilion are both new, and alongside the steps leading from one terrace to the other are ramps for wheelchairs and strollers.
Besides the central water channel and its gardens on both sides that stretch over three levels (like a classic ‘stepped’ Mughal garden), there are stretches of lawns, flowerbeds, trees, with the occasional pond and some topiary. There is also a small herb garden at one end, though since this isn’t labelled, it’s of little use to the average visitor. There is also a small cactus house, though this was locked when we visited. There is a small play area for children, an outdoor gym.
We visited in spring, when it was really pretty: there were lots of flowers, both in flowerbeds and on the trees—red silk cotton, white bauhinia, pink tabebuia, etc. The gardens are huge and because they don’t attract the huge crowds that more popular gardens like Lodhi Gardens, Nehru Park or Sunder Nursery do, they are much quieter.Written March 1, 2023
- What a perfectly peaceful place to walk in nature while surrounded by the large city. Many, many birds to find plus cool morning air. For the nature lovers, I highly recommend. Be sure to walk up to the top of the wall for a panoramic view of the city.Written April 1, 2023

- It is based on the concept of Japanese Garden, and it is landscaped well with plethora of flora & fauna.
You can spend an entire day here; however, it is quite a popular place so tends to get pretty crowded. So, it is not as quite or serene as you would want such place to be.
Nevertheless, good place to visit and spend some time.Written August 31, 2023
