extra:
The second octagonal tomb in Lodhi Garden is built over the grave of Sikandar Lodhi. This 16th century ruler of the Afghan Lodi dynasty was handsome and brave, but also ruthless and bigoted. That personality is reflected in the tomb. While blue tiles deck the chhatris and battlements, its outer wall spreads out into the grassy expanse in fort-like ramparts. Commissioned by Sikandar’s son Ibrahim, it is India’s earliest surviving enclosed garden tomb (1517).

When Edwin Lutyens designed the new capital of British India, New Delhi, in the 1920s, he aligned the central vista, now Rajpath, with Purana Qila. [4]  During the Partition of India, in August 1947 the Purana Qila along with the neighbouring Humayun's Tomb, became the site for refuge camps for Muslims migrating to newly founded Pakistan. This included over 12,000 government employees who had opted for service in Pakistan, and between 150,000–200,000 Muslim refugees, [5]  who swarmed inside Purana Qila by September 1947, when Indian government took over the management of the two camps. The Purana Qila camp remained functional till early 1948, as the trains to Pakistan waited till October 1947 to start.

The Mughal Gardens are perhaps the most visited part of the estate, spectacular in Spring. Laid out along the lines of the gardens in Kashmir and Agra, the Mughal gardens are known for their large varieties of flowers, especially the beautiful tulips, humongous dahlias, giant roses in so many colours - including green, grand lilies and the rare but stunning Iris. But the most mesmerising sight of them was the Circular Garden, with its terraced bowl flower beds, each blooming with a different variety and burst of colour
