Lodi Gardens, Qutb Minar and Humayun’s Tomb
 
Tour description:  This tour takes you to three historic locations in south Delhi, covering the Delhi Sultanate as well as the Mughal period.
Qutb Complex (built at the site of Lal Kot, the first city of Delhi) is a UNESCO World Heritage site that marks the arrival of Islamic rule in India. Created by the Slave Dynasty who ruled India for nearly a century, the complex is a grand cultural statement marking the beginning of a new religion that transformed the country.  In the initial phases, the new rulers demolished Hindu and Jain temples, but reused the pillars and stones, creating structures unique in the Islamic world.
The Lodi Gardens are a favourite spot for Delhi’s morning walkers, joggers and yoga enthusiasts. There are several beautiful buildings here that date from the 13th to the 16th centuries, when Delhi was ruled by five successive Sultanates. Later, the British developed the area into a garden dotted with medieval tombs, mosques, a water body, a bridge and other ruins. The charming hesitancy of Indo-Islamic architecture in its nascent stages, combined with the British love of landscaping, makes walking through Lodhi Garden a unique experience.
Humayun’s Tomb: Humayun was the second Mughal Emperor who ruled present  Afghanistan, Pakistan, and parts of northern India from 1530–1540 and again from 1555–1556. His tomb, built in 1570, is of particular cultural significance as it was the first garden-tomb on the Indian subcontinent. It inspired several major architectural innovations, culminating in the construction of the Taj Mahal. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage site
