New Delhi, Feb 14 (ANI): The Mughal Garden of Rashtrapati Bhavan will be opened for public viewing from February 15 to March 16.


It will remain closed on Mondays for maintenance.


Entry into the Gardens will be open only up to 4 p.m.


The main Mughal Garden is in bloom having annual flowers such as roses, lilies, tulips, double pansy flowers and eye catching velvet green lawns intercepted with lotus shaped fountains and blue base water canals.


The Mughal Gardens, contiguous to the main building of Rashtrapati Bhavan, cover an area of 15 acres.


They were designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens inspired by the beautiful gardens of Jammu and Kashmir, the garden around the Taj Mahal and Persian and Indian miniature paintings.


The Mughal Gardens comprise three parts: the first is the Rectangular Garden adjacent to the main Rashtrapati Bhavan building, which is divided into four quarters, each with terraced gardens on either side. The central lawn here is the venue of numerous receptions and 'At Homes' hosted by the President. (ANI)
