Amrit Udyan has reopened for the general public today. People can visit the iconic place for one month till September 17 except on Mondays. Amrit Udyan located within the Rashtrapati Bhavan, is one of the most famous parks and gardens in Delhi.

Visitors can visit the gardens from 10 am to 5 pm (last entry at 4 pm). Entry will be from gate no. 35 of Rashtrapati Bhavan, near North Avenue. Entry to Amrit Udyan is free of cost. Bookings can be made online on the Rashtrapati Bhavan website. A noteworthy highlight of this year’s opening is the exclusive entry privilege extended to teachers on September 5, celebrated as Teacher’s Day in India.

This is the first time that the iconic gardens at Rashtrapati Bhavan will open for the second time in a year. The Udyan Utsav-II aims to showcase the blossom of summer annuals to visitors. This year, Amrit Udyan was opened from January 29 to March 31.

The Centre in January this year renamed the Mughal Garden to Amrit Udyan keeping in line with the government’s theme of ‘Amrit Mahotsav’ marking India’s 75 years of independence.

The Mughal garden was designed by Sir Edwin Lutynes who designed Delhi for British Raj. It occupies an area of 13 acres and sports a blend of the formal Mughal style with the design of a British Garden.

President Droupadi Murmu visited Amrit Udyan on Monday.
