Mughal Garden

Mughal Garden, spread over an area of about 320 acres, is situated within the premises of Rashtrapathi Bhavan in New Delhi - the official residence of the president of India. Designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, Mughal Garden is a beautiful blend of Mughal and European styles. The soft English borders, small flower beds and lawns make the garden a virtual paradise.

Mughal Garden is filled with rare and exotic varieties of plants and flowers. Dwarf orange trees and rose plants are noteworthy among them. The ponds with different species of fish and fountains illuminated with multi-colored lights add to the splendor of the garden. Besides, there are four waterways decorated with red stone edges and plots of lawns. The president organizes special tea parties in the lawns of the garden.

The garden consists of three parts including Rectangular Garden, Long Garden and Circular Garden. Circular Garden, also known as Pearl Garden and Butterfly Garden, is attractive with a round pool and segmental flower beds. Long Garden is the only part of the garden with no canals.

Mughal Garden is open to the public from February to March every year, when the garden is in full bloom.
