"Kiss of the sun for pardon. Song of the birds for mirth. You're closer to God's heart in a garden than any place else on earth."

The green color attracts weary minds just like magnet attracts iron filings. It always has a soothing effect on the eyes and on the heart. And what can be the best way of refreshing oneself than to visit a garden cloaked in greenery punctuated by colorful flowers. Delhi is one such place which reverberates with several wonderful gardens, each having its own unique charm. It is a historic city where several rulers ruled and apart from building fine architectural structures, they bestowed the city with some beautiful gardens also.
