Bird Feeding on the Lawns

Pigeon feeding is a quintessential Delhi activity. Across the capital, citizens stop for a breather from their hectic lives to large flocks of eager birds. Guests at Ambassador get to be a part of this local culture at the hotel’s very own Lutyens Lawns. Whether early in the morning or in the afternoon, our staff guides you to the best spot to invite your feathered friends for a snack. The activity is perfect for some photo ops and a chance to perhaps walk barefoot on the grass.
