City List – The Nehru-Gandhi Archaeological Park, Around Town

Delhi by list.

Hyderabad has the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, Bombay, the Sanjay Gandhi National Park, and Chennai, the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. Our Delhi has well over 60 institutions, landmarks and places named after the Nehru-Gandhi clan, the family that has given India three Congress party prime ministers.

No matter what your feeling may be for this political dynasty, the Nehru-Gandhis have left a mark on history. And perhaps the coming generations will look upon the family with as much awe (or boredom) as we now do in the case of the Tomars, the Mamluks, the Khiljis, the Tughlaqs, the Sayyids, the Lodis, and the Mughals.

The Delhi Walla lays out the dynasty in the first city of its empire.
