Popularly known as the “soul” of the Presidential Palace, the Mughal Gardens are located inside the Rashtrapati Bhawan Complex. Designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens in the year 1917 for Lady Harding, the gardens cover a vast area of 13 acres and are a wonderful incorporation of Mughal architecture with that of British style. Inspired by the Mughal Gardens in Jammu and Kashmir, the ones in Delhi have succeeded in replicating the same charm and creating the picture perfect verdure panorama. The entire complex is a breathtaking combination of Circular, Spiritual, Bonsai, Herbal, Tactile and Musical Gardens. The gardens feature an extensive variety of seasonally blooming flowers and present a spectacular euphoric picture altogether.
Mughal Gardens boast of rare and endangered varieties of over 159 floral species including tulips, daffodils, Asiatic lilies, hyacinth, viscaria etc. Besides, the complex houses four water tanks, with sparkling water fountains coming out of lotus bases made of red sandstone. This wonderful example of nature’s majestic beauty is open to the public for a specified duration in the month of February and March at the time of the festival of Udyanotsav.

I definitely could not take my eyes off the beautiful rows of flowers when I visited Mughal Garden last year. Blue, lilac, golden yellow, crimson red- Mughal Garden has flowers of all colours. I had never been to a place so delightful and beautiful before. The sweet fragrance of flowers mingled with the cool breeze simply lifted up my mood. What I liked most was the fountain dancing to the tunes of the national anthem.The small ponds surrounding the flowers simply added to the scenic beauty. We were not allowed to carry any bags or bottles inside the garden. Also, towards the end I had some really delicious food at nominal rates of Rs.20 and Rs.30. Winters and spring are an ideal time to visit the park when the flowers are in full bloom.
