Amrit Udyan” new name given to Mughal Gardens at Rashtrapati Bhavan

Debjit Mukherjee: The iconic gardens at Rashtrapati Bhavan in Delhi – which were known as Mughal Gardens – will now be known as “Amrit Udyan”. The new name has been given by President Draupadi Murmu as part of “Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav” festivities, to mark 75 years of India’s independence, deputy press secretary to the President, Navika Gupta, told reporters on Saturday.

She further announced the gardens would be thrown open by the President on Sunday, and they will then open for public for about two months this time – from January 31 to March 26. Apart from this, a few days have also been reserved exclusively for differently-abled people, farmers, and women, she added.
