Indian Government Renames Mughal Garden at Rashtrapati Bhavan

The Indian Government has recently renamed the iconic Mughal Garden at the Rashtrapati Bhavan (the official residence of the President of India). The garden has been renamed Amrit Udyan ( the garden of holy nectar). 

The scenic Mughal Garden was built in 1928-1929 by Sir Edwin Lutyens. It is a cluster of 15 gardens that will be together known as Amrit Udyan from now on. India recently celebrated Republic Day on 26th January and is celebrating 75 years of Independence. This celebration is called "Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav '' (elixir of energy of independence). The government revealed that to keep up with the theme of the celebration, the Mughal Garden was renamed.

While some people welcomed this decision with positivity, many did not appreciate it. In an article, The wrote that this is one more step towards India's decolonization. Whereas many politicians from the opposition criticized the renaming of the garden by saying it is an attempt by the government to divert people's attention from ongoing issues within the country. 

This Garden is 15 acres long and it is inspired by gardens around the Taj Mahal, paintings of Persia and India, and the Mughal Gardens in Jammu and Kashmir. This garden is said to have an international touch as visitors can get to see flora and fauna like Brazilian Orchids, Tulips from the Netherlands, Cherry Blossoms from Japan, Water Lilies from China, 159 varieties of Roses, and many more from around the world. Geometric flower beds, Mughal Canals, terraces, European-style lawns, and different varieties of flowers are the main highlights of this garden.

This garden is open for visitors and tourists once every year so they can enjoy the amazing view of this garden. This year, it will be open from 31st January onwards.
