Following are sites that will give you that extra romantic feel to get your hearts on the highway to Love (and other things).

1.Garden of Five Senses


In this lavish garden, you'll experience more than just the five senses. Spread over an extensive area of 20 acres, the garden has been divided into different zones, with each having its own theme. Walk hand in hand as you explore each area and maybe even play a game based on the themes?

Address: Near Saket Metro Station, Mehrauli-Badarpur Road, Said Ul Ajaib Village, New Delhi

2.Lodi Gardens


A ginormous garden spread over 90 acres, this place is also house to some of the most beautiful Mughal architecture in the country. Walk along the pathways that never seem to end, quite possibly the same routes taken by the Mughal rulers and their love interests.

Address: Lodhi Rd, Lodhi Gardens, Lodhi Estate, New Delhi

3.Deer Park


Take a walk with your special one in the 13th century India. Bordered by it, the Hauz Khas ruins are connected to deer park. There is also the Hauz Khas tank, a big artificial lake that is home to many ducks whom visitors feed often. Best to sit at the ruins that overlook the lake and enjoy the sunset. If you ever get hungry or thirsty, Hauz Khas Village is just a step away.

Address: Hauz Khas, New Delhi

4.Damdama Lake


Covering an area of approximately 3000 acres, this lake was built by the British as a reservoir. A mere 50km from the city, it is truly an escape from this concrete jungle. Plan mini picnic and drive over there. Don't forget to carry a blanket, so that you can lie down and skygaze with you hero/heroine.

5.India Gate


This place used to be called All India War Memorial, was built in memory of all the Indian soldiers that lost their lives in World War 1. It's best to visit after the sun has set, because of the lighting, which creates a atmospher and it's romantic at the least. Grab an ice cream each and walk around. We assure you, that you both will find more than enough things to talk about.  Tip: Read up a little about this monument, so you can impress him/her with "did you know" facts and figures.

Address: Rajpath, India Gate, New Delhi
