Lodi Tomb Tour

 

The Lodi Tomb is positioned in the beautiful Lodi Gardens, which is an outstanding place to drench in the splendor that can be found in the gardens as well as one can take a glance at the dramatic Lodi tomb. Lodi Gardens is a famous tourist attraction of Delhi. Stretch over 90 acres; the park includes Sikander Lodi's Tomb, Mohammed Shah's Tomb, Bara Gumbad and the stunning Sheesh Gumbad as well as the beautiful architectural work of renown Sayyid and Lodis, who were the part of a Pashtun dynasty, which ruled a great part of Northern India during the 16th century. Currently, the place is preserved by the Archeological Survey of India (ASI).

The tomb of Sikander Lodi is more or less similar to the tomb of Mohammed Shah. However, Lodi’s Tomb doesn’t include chhatris, like Mohammed Shah's tomb. The tomb was built by the son of Sikander Lodi, Ibrahim Lodi in the year 1517, who was also the last sultan of the Lodi dynasty as he lost the battle against Babur, First battle of Panipat, held in 1526. This was the turning point of India as the battle became the start of the Mughal Empire.

Lodi Tomb frequently mistaken to be the Sheesh Gumbad, because of its location which is close to the tehsil office in Panipat, near the Dargah of the famous Sufi saint Bu Ali Shah Qalandar. The tomb is the simple rectangular construction, placed on a high podium, reachable by a few steps. Later, the tomb was repaired by Britishers, and a writing stating Ibrahim Lodi's defeat against Babur and the renovation was integrated in 1866. The place is really beautiful and incredible; one should definitely visit Lodi Tomb on their India trip.

After the 15th century, the Lodi and Sayyid empires, two villages were established near the monuments. However, the villages were repositioned in 1936 in order to build the gardens. While the Britishers were ruling the country, the terrain was landscaped by Lady Willingdon, who was the companion of the Governor-General of India, Marquess of Willingdon. This was the reason, why the park named, 'Lady Willingdon Park' upon its launch on April 9, 1936. Further, after India got independence, the park was named the ‘Lodi Gardens’. Since then, the park enjoys a large number of tourists, every year.

In 1968, the place was re-landscaped by the famed American architect, JA Stein, who also designed the adjoining India International Centre. Well! The park still includes a British era gateway, at the entrance of the park. So, do visit Lodi Tomb inside this incredible park, at your next visit to India.
