Being an ancient tomb monument, Lodhi Gardens is famous for housing many ancient tombs, including Mohammed Shah’s tomb, which dates way back to 1444 and Sikandar Lodhi’s tomb. The two tombs were the last remaining octagonal tombs from that period of Indian history. The Lodhi Garden was formerly known as lady Wellington Park. The park contains a jogging trail that is well maintained and an extensive garden surrounding the tombs where visitors can wander. The tombs might be the main attractions for people who are interested in history and architecture. The gardens also have mosques and bridges built during the Sayyid and Lodhis period in the 15 th century.
Another attraction is Qutab Minar, which is a tower of victory. Qutab-ud-din Aibik built it in 1193 after Delhi’s last Hindu kingdom was defeated. This tower has 5 unique stories. The Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque is located at the tower’s foot. It was the first mosque that was built in India.

The tomb is located near Nizamuddin in east Delhi. This magnificent 16thcentury tomb was the earliest large scale of Mughal architecture. In 1993, the tomb was recognized as a UNESCO World heritage site. This tomb is also famous as the first garden tomb to be built in the Indian Subcontinent.
