90 Acres Of Green & Fresh Air, In The Heart Of Delhi

Tired of picnics at Lodhi Garden or Nehru Park? This green haven is your new picnic spot right in the heart of Delhi!

Do you want to get away from the noise and hustle-bustle of your daily routine? Driving a few hours out of town is not always an option. Well! Now you don’t need to.  You can visit the city’s first arboretum. What is an arboretum? I just found out also – It refers to a botanical garden containing living collections of woody plants and is intended at least in part for scientific study.

 The recently renovated Sundar Nursery is definitely your go-to for your breathe of fresh air and some tranquillity (or not if you’re taking your kids along). It’s been compared to New York’s Central Park. The Time magazine has named it one of the world’s greatest places to visit in 2018. Now doesn’t that sound interesting? 

What’s The Sundar Nursery?

Sunder Nursery located near the Humayun’s Tomb entrance in Nizamuddin has been opened to the public after years of being under renovation. This ‘wasteland’ originally known as Azim Bagh has been transformed into a haven complete with a green cover and restored heritage monuments.
