Talkatora Gardens are situated on the main Willingdon Crescent Road in New Delhi. The place where the gardens now stand once housed a huge walled tank. Although the tank has been replaced by a relatively small swimming pool, it is still named after it (tal means tank and katora means cup). The site of the Talkatora Gardens was once the venue of a battle in which the Mughals defeated the Marathas. The Talkatora gardens are exquisitely manicured and look splendid, especially in spring, with blossoming colorful flowers, shrubs and plants.
Apart from their scenic splendor, one of the major attractions of the
Talkatora gardens is the Talkatora Indoor Stadium. A number of programs,
shows and competitions are held at the Talkatora Garden of New Delhi,
throughout the year. In order to develop the interest of children in the
science of horticulture, regular shows are organized at the gardens. A
perfect picnic spot, these gardens provide all the beauty and serenity
that helps a person to relax and forget all his woes.
