It’s spring guys and Mughal Gardens just opened its doors. Visitors can now see the magnificent Mughal Gardens in its full glory at Rashtrapati Bhawan, also known as the President’s Palace.
The Mughal Gardens comprises of 3 successive terraces in different shapes. The first is the Rectangular Garden followed by Long Garden and finally the Circular Garden. All the areas are extremely rejuvenating, the greenery, punctuated by bright colours of flowers being balm to sore eyes. That said we would suggest that the Rose Garden, Herbal Garden and Meditation Garden are the most picturesque. They have a host of fountains everywhere and these are great spots for clicking photographs.
The gardens are not the only attraction here. Towards the end of the tour, there are make shift stalls that display agricultural and horticultural products. There are shops selling seeds and manure as well. We have often bought our year’s quota of plant growth enhancing combinations from the stalls here.
