Millennium Park

Millennium Indraprastha Park, which is more popularly known as the Millennium Park, has now become a tourist hotspot. Located at the Ring Road, Sarai Kale Khan, the picturesque park stretches for more than 34 hectares, making it an ideal place for family outings. Noted as one of the largest parks of the capital city, it boasts of a perfectly manicured lush green lawn along with vibrant and colorful garden. Chairs, stools and benches are placed between the rows of trees and colorful flowers, offering the perfect place for a hang out with friends. Not just the seating arrangements, cottages with finely designed thatched roofs are sure to attract the attention of anyone visiting the place.

While the well-trimmed lawn offers a visual treat to everyone, the fantastically-shaped bushes add to its beauty. Someone visiting the park in the evening is sure to be spellbound with the water pool and fountains, which are brightened by soft lights, without causing minutest harm to the plants surrounding the area.

The park houses almost everything that one may require for a short outing, viz. five restaurants with one single food court, amphitheatre and children’s park.  Drinking water and toilet facilities are also available for every visitor. It also has ample parking space for visitors coming on their personal vehicles.

History of the Park

The park is located on the Ring Road, just behind the historic Humayun’s Tomb and offers a clear view of the majestic structure. Yet, it is a modern construction developed by the Delhi Development Authority in the year 2004. Later, a World Peace Stupa got constructed in the park and was inaugurated by Lt. Governor of Delhi, 14th Dalai Lama along with the nuns and monks of Nipponzan Myohoji on November, 14th 2007. Sahitya Kala Parishad assists the park authorities to organize different cultural events in the amphitheater located inside the park.

Best Time to Visit

The park can be visited at any time of the year. Yet, it is ideal to avoid the afternoons during summers as it is too hot in New Delhi. While late afternoon or evening is ideal time to visit in the winter months, in summer, it is best to visit in the evening. The park remains open for visitors till 8:30 p.m.  Tourists coming to the park can also visit Nehru Park, Lodi Garden, Jantar Mantar and India Gate, located close by.
