The Garden of Five Senses in Delhi is a paradise for nature lovers, away from the city centre. It is an amalgamation of natural beauty and man-made art.

It is a park sprawling over 20 acres; built partly on rocky terrain and partly on a plain area. This spectacular park has trees, flowery bushes and other plants. And you’ll also come across water fountains and pools. Different artworks and sculptures too, are found in the Garden of Five Senses Delhi.

The garden also has a food court and an amphitheatre for cultural programmes. It hosts various other events; the annual flower show (in February) is worth seeing.

Why is it called the Garden of Five Senses?

The Garden of Five Senses evokes the five senses of the human body.

The contemporary artworks and rock-carved sculptures invite you to touch. The colours scattered around please the sight. The flowers trigger the sense of smell; the sounds stimulate hearing. And the food court excites the sense of taste.

The garden invites you to interact and explore. And the five senses are balanced to soothe you and help you relax while you're here.

Where is the Garden of Five Senses?

This 20-acre site is in Said-Ul-Azaib village, opposite Saket. It is close to the historic heritage area of Mehrauli where you can visit the towering world heritage monument Qutub Minar. You'll also find various art galleries, designer boutiques and lavish food joints.

History of Garden of Five Senses

Garden of Five Senses Mehrauli is designed by Pradeep Sachdeva, an architect from Delhi itself. The idea was to build a leisure space where people can interact and socialise. The park was developed by Delhi Tourism Transportation Development Corporation, and it took over three years to complete. It was opened in February 2003.

Architecture of Garden of Five Senses

The Garden of Five Senses is divided into several sections.

A plaza with low walls separates this beautiful garden from the main road. The entry gateway has stainless steel birds installed on slate-clad pillars. And the walls are built with sandstones by craftsmen from Rajasthan, in Mughal architectural style. These sculptors also carved the huge elephants of stone, which you see as you enter the garden area.

A paved, spiral walkway leads you into the garden. And towards the right, you'll see Khas Bagh. It is inspired from Mughal Gardens and it has lush green lawns dotted with vibrant flowery shrubs. Small waterfalls forming a free-flowing stream of water and many water fountains are also here.

And as you move forward, you’ll come across the food court and shopping plaza. Only a few steps ahead you'll find various stone silhouettes, and then Neel Bagh. It has a variety of colourful and fragrant flowers and a small pool of water lilies.

The Garden of Five Senses also has an open-air amphitheatre to organise shows, cultural events and art workshops.
