This walk will take you through Sunder Nursery located near Humayun's Tomb. This nursery was originally known as Azim Bagh which contained some of the native and rare plant species of the capital. This 16th century park was converted into a nursery by the British to grow experimental plants to change the landscape of Delhi for a long time to come, hence the name Sunder. The result is the avenue trees of New Delhi as we see them today. This 100 acre garden has had many make overs since then, it even has a large section of the four micro-habitat zones which were part of Delhi's original landscape namely Kohi (ridge), Bangar (alluvial), Khadar (riverine) and Dabar (marsh).

In true fashion of cyclical changes in our part of the world, we focus on the trees of Sunder Nursery as they have witnessed Delhi and ever changing mindsets of our city. We will follow the trajectory of plantation patterns set up by all who have governed us and talk about the unique setting, which now holds a special place in the ecology of our urban background.
