The Coronation Durbar Park, also known as the Coronation Memorial was the venue of the Delhi Durbar in 1877 after Queen Victoria was declared the Empress of India. In 1903 the park was later used to celebrate King Edward’s assumption of the throne in 1903.

It was at the same place that the coronation of King George the fifth as Emperor of India took place as well in December 1911. The park is also home to the tallest statue of King George the Fifth which used to be under the Canopy near India Gate and was later removed from there in the 1960’s and placed here.

The park which was initially in a state of neglect has been restored by the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage and the Government of Delhi.
