It was established in the 15th-16th century by the Sayyids and Lodis. The gardens are more like a park and nice to stroll in, but it is the buildings that catch your eye. Medieval monuments lend a charm to these gardens.

In 1968, J.A Stein and Garrett Eckbo re-landscaped these gardens giving them their present form. The several tombs situated in the garden belong to the Lodi and Sayyid Era and include Muhammad Shah's Tomb and Sikander Lodi's tomb. These tombs boast of excellent architecture, and this style was later used in the construction of Taj Mahal.  This garden is known for its fountains, ponds, flowering trees, blossoming shrubs and artificial streams. In the middle of the garden is Bara Gumbad (Big Dome), a mosque built in 1494 and Sheesh Gumbad (Glass Dome).
