An Excellent, Dog Friendly New Delhi Outing: Sunder Nursery

sunder nursery dog friendly

New Delhi can be very dog-unfriendly.

It’s hard to walk canines here, and most restaurants and cafes don’t allow furry companions.

So we were excited today to discover that Sunder Nursery, a recently opened park that friends have raved about, lets you bring in pooches – provided you clean up after them, and keep them leashed, and off the grass (humans must also stick to most pathways).

Located near Humayun’s Tomb in central Delhi, it opened earlier this year after being renovated. It houses a 16th century tomb, various gardens and lawns, and is meticulously maintained. You can find it on Google Maps here.

An added bonus: There’s a farmers’ market every Sunday between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. You can buy coffee and juices, snacks, produce and more. There are tables to sit down and eat, as well.

The complex is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day. There’s a small admission charge for entry.

You can find more info on the Sunder Nursery Wikipedia page, and on TripAdvisor. Scroll down for pics — and a photo of the rules posted outside the entrance stipulating that canines are allowed in.

Highly recommended by us – and Ginger.

    Video: New Delhi Street Dogs are Totally Unflappable 

    ​I often pass this group of street dogs near our office building in Connaught Place. 

    These mutts are totally unflappable. 

    Honking cars, pedestrians weaving between them, bicycles, horses, you name it. 

    They could care less. 

    They just keep dozing, sunning themselves as New Delhi buzzes all around them. 

    A level of zen I can only one day hope to attain!

    Previously: a super-enterprising street dog I saw back in August.
