Mughal Garden, New Delhi

The Mughal Garden is located within the Rashtrapati Bhavan which is the residence of the first citizen of India- the President. It is one of the famous and beautifully maintained parks and gardens in Delhi. The Mughal Garden is further divided into three sub-parts which are rectangular garden, long garden and circular garden. It depicts an amalgamation of ancient Mughal style with modern British design. The garden has four waterways in it with uniquely designed fountains at the intersections. It also has huge red sandstone discs that look exactly like lotus leaves giving it a mesmerizing sight. You can see many small gardens, like Pearl garden, butterfly garden, etc within the Mughal Garden.

The Rectangular Garden section of the Mughal Garden is the closest one to the Rashtrapati Bhavan main building. The Central Lawn of the Rectangular Garden is very important as it is where the annual ‘At Home’ ceremonies are hosted by the President of India on The Republic Day and The Independence Day. Long Garden is mainly a 430 feet long rose garden containing 16 rose beds. Long Garden is also known as Purdha garden, since it is enclosed with walls of about 12 feet high. The circular garden is the place which is adorned with multi-tiered flower beds and is considered to be the perfect place to spot vibrant butterflies. Mughal Gardens will now be open for the public from August till March, so don’t miss a chance to see the lush green gardens while visiting the Capital.
