A repository of some of the most significant architectural remains from the Sayyid and Lodhi dynasties of medieval Delhi. The Lodis and the Sayyids were the last two dynasties of the Delhi Sultans, ruling from 1414-1526. They command the period between the sack of Delhi by Tamerlane in 1398 to the conquest of India by his descendants, the Mughals. While the antique left by them may not be as magnificent or numerous as the monuments the Mughals left behind, their legacy is an integral part of the rich tapestry that chronicles the history of our city. Circa 21st century The Ashok trees lining the entrance to the park are alive with the sounds of birds calling, best experienced early in the morning or a couple of hours preceding sunset. The Kufic caption on the ruins of the mosque, the blue tilework on one of the domes, the massive octagonal bases of the tombs are majestic in the slanting light of the sun. The summer months see the bright yellow of the amaltas, while the winters are the best time to sit in the sun. There’s also the lake and that big flock of geese loitering about it, that’s a beautiful corner to go to when the other parts of the park have been taken.
