Govt Rechristen Delhi’s Mughal Gardens ‘Amrit Udyan’


New Delhi : The Mughal Gardens in New Delhi’s Rashtrapati Bhavan have been rechristened “Amrit Udyan” following a decision made by the Central government on Saturday.

Amrit Udyan was formerly known as Mughal Gardens, but the Central government of India decided to rebrand them as Amrit Udyan in order to better reflect the spirit of ‘Amrit Mahotsav,’ an event that celebrates India’s 75 years of independence.

On the occasion of the celebrations of 75 years of Independence as ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav,’ the President of India has given a common name to the Rashtrapati Bhavan gardens as Amrit Udyan. This was announced by Navika Gupta, who is the deputy press secretary to President Droupadi Murmu.

The Amrit Udayan will be inaugurated on Sunday, January 29, by President Droupadi Murmu, and will be open to the public for a period of two months, beginning on January 31 and ending on March 26. When the flowers are in their prime, typically between the months of February and March, the garden is open to the general public for viewing during that entire month.

According to Navika Gupta, in addition to the two-month window that has been made available for the general public to view the garden, the government has also planned to keep the garden open for viewing by special groups, such as farmers and people with different abilities.

Every year, the Mughal Gardens are typically accessible to the general public for one full month. The Mughal Gardens are comprised of a number of distinct gardens, including the Herbal Garden, Musical Garden, Spiritual Garden, and Rectangular, Long, and Circular Gardens, which can all be explored by guests.
