Rashtrapati Bhavan's iconic Mughal Garden has been opened for the general public. This year, you can expect to find 137 varieties of roses, 10,000 tulips and over 70 types of seasonal flowers in this the 15-acre garden.
Bulbous flowering and exotic flowers imported from Netherlands are some of the major highlights this season. In this garden, you'll find carpets of flowers like Pansy, Pink Parfait, Dahlia, Marigold, China Man and more that'll be a guaranteed treat to your eyes. A corner for succulents and cacti, a herb and bonsai garden, a musical garden and a garden displaying plants significant to all religions are some of the other attractions you should look forward to. Organic veggies and fruits from the President's farm and air-purifying plants will also be displayed.
Moreover, this is the first time ever that an online booking facility has been introduced for regulating entry into the garden. The visiting hours for the same have been divided into seven hourly slots for weekday online booking (i.e. 9am - 3pm) and three hourly slots for weekends (9, 10 and 11am). Each slot allows entry of 1000 visitors on weekdays and 2500 visitors on the weekend.
If you're someone who wishes to avoid last minute hassle and long queues, do book your visit online (otherwise walk-ins are also permitted).
