Formerly known as Azim Bagh or Bagh-e-Azeem, Sundar Nursery is now introduced as Delhi’s heritage park. The place I saw was first on Instagram and was amazed to see the collection of beautiful flowers. Flanked by the world heritage monument, Humanyu Tomb, the park was originally built by Mughals. But with time, this park lost glory and now once again the government has decided to return its glory. (ALSO READ: A Walk Through Isa Khan Tomb)

Oh I had told you the other day that I visited #humanyutomb and then I even went to Sundar Park which is a heritage park. And when I was walking in the garden, this sight caught my attention. This is such a rare sight nowadays. And all thanks to extinction of the gardens. 🦋 🦋 🦋 🦋 🦋 When was the last time you saw butterflies visited your garden? In my childhood days these were common and I clearly remember running in the garden behind them just to catch them. But nowadays they are not seen anywhere and i feel really sorry. Our need for more space has basically made them homeless. 🦋 🥀 🥀 🥀 If you agree then ponder about this and try to plant some plants in your home so that they can feel home is not far @sundarpark @delhitourism @humanyutomb #lifestyle #italianboy #instalike #instagram #photoshoot #photography #travel #traveler #travelgram #picoftheday #wanderlust #nature_brilliance #dm_photolife_nature #nature_love #nature_perfection #bestnatureshot #ig_naturelovers #sundarpark #delhitourism #flowers #honeybees
Located on the Mughal-era Grand Trunk Road, the garden is spread over 90 acres. The heritage park comprises of 15 heritage monuments of which 6 are UNESCO World Heritage sites, including Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) protected Sundarwala Burj, Sundarwala Mahal and Lakkarwala Burj.
When I entered this park, I thought that it will be like any other park but I was wrong. The huge park is well planned and all the monuments are on the distance. The park is home to many people who come there to relax, enjoy and even to create Tik Tok videos. Good numbers of youngsters were seen making Tik Tok videos.
After renovations, the nursery was reopened to the public as a heritage park in 2018. It has over 300 types of trees, flowers, making it Delhi’s first arboretum. Not many know that during the British rule, the nursery was established to grow experimental plants, which gave it its current designation as a nursery. The “Sunder” part of the name comes from the Sunder Burj tomb located at the same premises.
While walking in the heritage park, I spotted so many butterflies making the garden more beautiful. There is a soothing feeling when you are in this garden. Everything is so calm and clean that you will always wish to come back here.
UNESCO World Heritage status has been given to the following six structures within Sunder Nursery – Sunder Burj, Sundarwala Mahal, Lakkarwala Burj, Mirza Muazzafar Hussain’s Tomb, Chotta Bateshewala and the Unknown Mughal’s tomb.
I saw almost all the monuments but the most beautiful I found is Lakkarwala Burj. When I was heading towards the tomb, there was a beautiful rose garden with every colours and all in full bloom. You just cannot stop yourself from taking a selfie with them. In this modern era where everything on social media where you can experience some me-time with yourself and even with your loved ones.
