One of the world’s greatest urban parks, the treetops are aflutter with birds: black drongos, Indian tree pies, mynahs, red-vented bulbuls. The park is also a functional playground: joggers in track-suits rest on crumbling mausoleum stairs; yogis do sun salutations beside the pond; vendors proffer glasses of cool jal jeera—salty limeade with cumin and mint—while picnicking families keep an eye on greedy macaques. (Wild monkeys are a growing nuisance in Delhi’s parks; the city has hired a corps of a hundred monkey-catchers to solve the problem.) Address: Lodi Rd.
