Delhi : Gol Gumbad

Tuesday, May 19, 2015

This tomb belongs to the Lodhi Period. 

History of Gol Gumbad
This structure is located at the intersection of Lodhi Road and Lal Bahadur Shashtri Marg. It is in the premises of Centenary Methodist Church.
Gol Gumbad
It is a square shaped structure with a dome on top of it.  Though the structure is intact. The paint has peeled off the walls of the structure. Trying to figure out if it’s the rain, that has given this effect on the walls or as always the Govt has done nothing to maintain it. Entry inside the structure  and to the terrace is locked with a lock. So you can only see it from the outside. Nothing is mentioned in regards to whose tomb it is. Which I believe should be written next to it.

We then headed off to Sabz Burj.

hi
though what you have written is correct. But to add on this our school Vikas Bharati Public School has adopted this monument last year. We had yoga session for kids there and various other activities for kids like drawing competition.
