Partly built over a rocky terrain, the garden has various theme areas, including a section on the lines of Mughal Gardens, plus pools of water lilies, bamboo courts, herb gardens and solar energy park.

Located just off the Mehrauli-Badarpur Road, in Said-Ul-Azaib village, close to the Mehrauli heritage area, The Garden of Five Senses is a park developed by Delhi Tourism Transportation Development Corporation. Inaugurated in February 2003, the garden is designed to stimulate our five senses with its beauty and attractions and give us a chance to touch, smell, hear and see our natural surroundings. The garden serves as one of the prominent cultural venues of the capital, as programmes are organized here round the year. The Garden tourism festival (February), food festivals, different melas, Dandiya festivals and other cultural programmes are held here at different times.

As the relations between India and Mexico are warming up, India has recently unveiled a replica of the Labna Arch at Garden of Five Senses in New Delhi as a goodwill gesture. The arch was built by the millenary culture of the Mayans located in Yucatan, Mexico and built in the Late and Terminal Classic era. A date corresponding to AD 862 is inscribed in the palace.

The Labna Arch in the Garden of the Five Senses in New Delhi was inaugurated on 16 September 2013 by the Mayoress of New Delhi, Madame Sheila Dikshit and the Mexican Ambassador Jaime Nualart. The replica constructed by Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage, was made with stone from Rajasthan, similar to the stone found in the Puuc region of Yucatán, and worked by expert Indian stonecutters. The project was initiated by Julio Faesler-Carlisle, Mexican Ambassador to India (2001-2004)and entirely funded by private enterprises, three Indian and three Mexican. The Arch will serve as a venue for cultural events.
