It is a park on Burari Road close to Nirankari sarovar of North Delhi. It was the venue where Delhi Durbar took place, when Queen Victoria proclaimed empress of India. There is an obelisk on Durbar Park, which commemorate the shifting of Capital of India from Calcutta to Delhi in 1911 in presence of King George V and Queen Mary.... More

This park is of heritage importance and located near Delhi University. Totally neglect by the Government. The coronation park is one of the prime British Heritage of the colonial era. Total neglect of history and heritage. Queen Victoria was declared Empress of India at the Durbar held at this site during 1877.

Delhi has over 170 monuments of various historic periods scattered all over the city and most of them, which do not feature as tourist spots, have been neglected by the authorities. The Coronation Park is one of the prime Britsh heritage spots of the colonial era located near the Delhi University. While local authorities go on erecting garlanded statues of... More

We will visit again the next time we are in Delhi. The park is being upgraded and the British statues were covered to protect them. We were told that next year the work will be finished.

I understand India's ambivalence towards its erstwhile British rulers, and can see why the site of the imperial durbars isn't high on the list of things-to-renovate. I can understand that statues of former viceroys should be consigned to a bare stretch of waste ground somewhere north of Delhi University near the suburb-cum-slum of Kingsway Camp. But what I can't understand... More

This park COULD be nice, if it were maintained and if the construction currently underway turns out as planned. Don't miss the tallest statue of King George IV in the world. I feel kinda sorry for him out here in the middle of nowhere.
