After renaming the Mughal Garden in Rashtrapati Bhavan, the opening ceremony of Amrit Udyan was organized today at Rashtrapati Bhavan.
President Droupadi Murmu celebrated the opening of Amrit Udyan today.
In keeping with the theme of ‘Amrit Mahotsav’, marking the 75th anniversary of India’s independence, the central government renamed the Mughal Gardens to Amrit Udyan on Saturday.
The garden will open to the public on January 31st and will remain open until March 26th, 2023.
Main attractions of Udyan Utsav 2023
At this year’s Udyan Utsav, visitors can see specially grown tulips in 12 unique varieties expected to bloom in stages. People can scan a QR code placed in the garden to get more information about a particular flower, plant or tree during their visit.
Rashtrapati Bhavan has a variety of gardens. Originally they included East Lawn, Central Lawn, Long Garden and Circular Garden. During the tenure of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam and former President Shri Ram Nath Kovind, more gardens were developed namely Herbal-I, Herbal-II, Tactile Garden, Bonsai Garden and Arogya Vanam.
This time the gardens (Herb Garden, Bonsai Garden, Central Lawn, Long Garden and Round Garden) will be open for about 2 months.
Date of visit to the garden
The gardens will open to the public on January 31, 2023 and will remain open until March 26, 2023 (except on Mondays and March 8 due to Holi maintenance days).
From March 28th to 31st, the garden will be open as a special category on the following dates:
– March 28 for farmers,
– March 29 for disabled people,
– On March 30th, in the case of officials from the National Defense Forces, paramilitary units, and police,
– For women, including the SHG of the March 31 tribe women.
Another step in making Rashtrapati Bhavan accessible to more and more people is to increase the capacity of each time slot.
Visitors can visit every 6 hours between 1000 and 1600 hours.
Capacity for 2 morning slots (1000-1200 hours) is 7,500 on weekdays and 10,000 on weekends in each slot.
The capacity for the 4 afternoon slots (1200-1600 hours) is 5,000 per slot on weekdays and 7,500 on weekends.
