8 Reasons to Head to Rashtrapati Bhavan’s Amrit Udyan


The iconic Mughal garden of Rashtrapati Bhavan has been renamed ‘Amrit Udyan’ by the central government.
The garden is open to the public for two months from January 31st to March 26th.
The garden is open to the public when flowers are in full bloom.
At this year’s Udyan Utsav, visitors can see 12 unique varieties of specially grown tulips that are expected to bloom in stages.
The floral carpets and beautiful patches of Pasadena, Pansy, China Man, Marigold, Antigone, Pink Parfait, Dahlia, Zambra and Raptosinia flower varieties will make your eyes sore.
Inspired by the Mughal gardens of Jammu and Kashmir, the Mughal Gardens at Rashtrapati Bhavan were designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1917.
The gardens followed the Mughal style at the bidding of Mrs. Hardinge, when the Viceroy’s House was built on Laishina Hill in Delhi after the British moved the capital from Calcutta in 1911.
Spread over 15 acres, the gardens blend Indian and Western architectural styles.
