Buddha Jayanti Park
Buddha Jayanti Park is one of the most beautiful and popular parks in New Delhi, and was established to celebrate the 2500th anniversary of Gautama Buddha’s enlightenment. With large green spaces, lakes, colourful flowers and the chirping of birds and crickets, Buddha Jayanti Park is the perfect spot for those searching for peace in the city. The large expanses of grass, perfect for resting on, picnicking and watching the changing sky, make it a favourite among families. A pavilion in the centre of the park seats a statue of Gautama Buddha that was dedicated by the 14th Dalai Lama in 1993.
Opening hours: 6am – 8.30pm
