During British Raj, it was landscaped by Lady Willingdon, wife of Governor-General of India, Marquess of Willingdon, and hence named the ‘Lady Willingdon Park’ upon its inauguration on April 9, 1936, and 1947, after Independence, it was given its present name, Lodi Gardens.
As there is little architecture from these two periods remaining in India, Lodi Gardens is an important place of preservation. The tomb of Mohammed Shah is visible from the road, and is the earliest structure in the gardens. The architecture is characterised by the octagonal chamber, with stone chhajjas on the roof and guldastas on the corners.

The tomb of Mohammed Shah, the last of the Sayyid dynasty rulers, the earliest of the tombs in the garden, was built in 1444 by Ala-ud-din Alam Shah as a tribute to Mohammed Shah.
After the 15th century Sayyid and Lodi dynasties, two villages grew around the monuments, but the villagers were relocated in 1936 in order to create the gardens.
Another tomb within the gardens is that of Sikander Lodi, which is similar to Mohammed Shah’s tomb, though without the chhatris, it was built by his son Ibrahim Lodi in 1517, the last of Sultan of Delhi from Lodi dynasty, as he was defeated by Babur.
It is a simple rectangular structure on a high platform approached by a flight of steps. The tomb was renovated by the British, and an inscription mentioning Ibrahim Lodi’s defeat at the hands of Babur and the renovation was included in 1866.
Note:Closest Metro Station : Jor Bagh

Please Note : if you register and confirm that you will be attending and do not turn up, you have denied someone as enthusiastic as you, a chance of the walk. Therefore, please register and confirm only if you are reasonably certain to make it on the day :)

About Bhangarh

bhangarh-fort_1443704897e12

Bhangarh Fort, Rajasthan

Bhangarh fort is located in the ruined city of the same name, somewhere between Jaipur and Alwar, in Rajasthan. The place is so haunted by paranormal activities that even the Archaeological Survey of India has put up a board that restricts people from visiting the fort area before sunrise and after sunset. Legend has it that a tantric named Singhiya fell in love with a princess from the fort. He tried to use black magic to get her to fall in love with him, but it backfired and he died. Just before his death, he cursed the fort saying all who lived within it would die.

Today, villagers who live in the area continue to build roofless dwellings because everytime they do build a roof, it inexplicably collapses. People have also mysteriously gone missing after-hours inside the fort. It’s an hour and a half by road from Jaipur on the Jaipur-Alwar road.

About Alwar

Located in Rajasthan , Alwar’s history dates back to 1500 BC. Located around 160 km south of Delhi , the capital of Rajasthan. A Rajput state for a long time, Alwar eventually fell to the Delhi Sultans in the 12th and 13th centuries. In 1771 AD Maharaja Pratap Singh, a Kachwaha Rajput belonging to the clan of Jaipur’s rulers, won Alwar back and founded a state of his own.

Known earlier as Mewat, Alwar gained reputation as a remarkable seat of art and culture under the patronage of Maharaja Pratap Singh. In the 18th century, Pratap Singh evicted the rulers of Jaipur to the south and the Jats of Bharatpur to the east, and successfully resisted the invasion of Marathas. It was one of the first Rajput states to ally itself with the British Empire. Like all the princely states, this stronghold of the Rajputs also came under British rule and remained so until India gained independence.

Places we will be visiting  Siliser lake, mooch Maharani Ki Chatri and Bala Quila
