  • This place is figuratively heaven. Just heaven. If you love nature, you will instantly fall in love with this place. I travelled 7+ monuments and historical places in one day and this was more mesmerizing than all of them. You should visit this at least once every month. Place is kinda popular for couples as it offers a lot of stuff for an amazing date. You'll be amazed to see that places like this exist and are available for you to visit any time.
  • Had an amazing time visiting this historic place. It is beautiful and peaceful. Really good for walkers. They have benches under trees which give you the most peaceful and soothing experience. Kids and family friendly. Just bring out your picnic stuff and enjoy.
  • If you follow the outer most running track in the garden, then you will have run approx. 2.25 km. It's full of trees and is well maintained. I'm grateful for the king, whoever it was, who first curated this garden 100s of years ago and to all those subsequent people including the govt. the civic authorities the gardener's the police and the cleaners who make it clean, safe and beautiful so that people can enjoy the awesome experience it provides for no cost at all.
  • Amazing Gardens. I was very impressed with this park. Not only is it a free admission and a space that is big enough to run and exercise in, but there are also a host of monuments and ruins contained within its borders. The gardens seem well maintained. The monuments range from ruins to being fairly complete. The park seems to be a favorite of locals, both people looking for a scenic photo shoot and those looking for a moment of romance
  • I was very impressed with this park.here I came to know what is the real natural beauty. Really this place is very very beautiful and peaceful. This place is green in all directions. Must visit place.and full enjoyment both family member and group frndsss. As people can come here for running, walking, or if you want a beautiful scene of sunset, so many couple go for ore wedding photo shoots etc. On weekends this place is full of locals as people visit there with families and kids can play and have fun. Though it’s a nice place for couples trying to get some romantic time.

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists. For budget accommodations, consider the neighborhood of Paharganj, just west of the New Delhi railway station. Noisy and packed with peddlers of every kind, the area offers some of the least expensive rooms located relatively near major attractions. Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors. Always call or visit the website in advance to check on prices and amenities included.
