The garden also houses a big dome namely Bara Gumbad amidst it. It is a large rubble like structured dome which poses as a gateway to other three domes. These were built under the reign of Lodi Dynasty during Sikandar Lodi’s rule. The central courtyard has a hall or a mansion where traces of a water tank can be found.
Lodi Shish or Sheesh Gumbad (Glass Dome) is sited just opposite to the Bara Gumbad. It has been named so due to excessive use of tiles in its construction. Its reason of construction or family to which it belongs is still a mystery. The only known detail is that this was also constructed in the rule of Sikander Lodi.
The magnificent Garden also has the remains of a watercourse linked with Yamuna River. It passes close to the tomb of Sikander Lodi. Athpula – the eight pierced bridge was constructed close to Sikander Lodi’s tomb. This was the last building constructed in Delhi under the reign of Mughal Emperor Akbar. The central tomb is the largest and has 7 arches. Mohammed Shah’s tomb is among the first one being constructed here. It came into being in the year 1444 by ala-ud-din Alam Shah.
Lodi Garden is considered among the places to be preserved as it contains the tombs of great rulers India has ever seen. With magnificent architecture and carvings imbibed on them, it finds a place in the architectural history of India.
