Mughal Gardens

Gardens in New Delhi

The extravagance of these glorious gardens is such that Mountbatten, India’s last viceroy, was said to have employed 418 gardeners. There are fountains, cypress, bougainvillea, climbing roses, symmetrical lawns and wandering peacocks. If you're in town when the gardens are in flower (the same months they're open), they're not to be missed.
