Since walk-in entry into the Mughal gardens is prohibited as a precautionary measure due to the prevailing Covid-19 pandemic, visitors are allowed to see the Garden only through advance online booking. Not only through the official website, but visitors can also now book their tickets to Mughal Gardens using the Delhi government's 'Dekho Meri Dilli' app.
Launched in September 2021 with an aim to boost tourism in the national capital, the app along with its many user-friendly features offers six unique ways to discover Delhi. It also helps to plan a city tour ranging from half a day to even six days. It also provides access to Google maps to the required destination when you search for one along with its operational days, timings etc.
"The Delhi government’s mobile app 'Dekho Meri Dilli', developed by the tourism department, can be used to book a visit to Mughal Garden, opening for visitors from Monday, and other major tourist spots," says Swati Sharma, Delhi government’s tourism secretary.
Sharma says, “The app can be used for booking tickets to major tourist destinations and tourists will not need to stand in queues to get the tickets."
'Dekho Meri Dilli' recently added the ‘Biodiversity Parks’ developed and maintained by DDA and also the ‘Bharat Darshan Park’ developed by SDMC with complete information to give users a holistic experience of Delhi.
She further tells, “It will take the users to the respective sites of the tourist locations where tickets can be booked instantly. It will help people avoid crowds which is an important aspect of coronavirus pandemic management.”
The tourism department designed the mobile application to facilitate a longer stay of tourists in the Capital by providing them with all the information on one reliable platform.
