A Museum of 300 Trees!
The gardens were the first architectural expression of the Mughals in Hindustan. It was not just a reflection of their love for nature but the gardens were also used as territorial markers to demonstrate their new presence. This nursery is now home to almost 300 trees.
Heritage Buildings From The Mughal Era
The walk will take you through the heritage buildings in the nursery which date back to early Mughal Era like Sunderwala Bud, Lakkarwala Burj, Azimganj Sarai, Sunderwala Mahal, and Bateshewala Complex (which features a mausoleum of Akbar's son-in-law). The main attraction of the walk is the central axis - a combination of Mughal water gardens and Persian carpet patterns.

The walk will be led by Gaurav Sharma, a faculty at NIFT Delhi who has done extensive research in the field of the Indian art and culture. His experience of researching on historical personalities has also lent him enough credentials to narrate historical events in the form of a story backed by facts.
