New Delhi: The renowned Mughal Gardens of Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi will now be referred to as "Amrit Udyan." President Draupadi Murmu announced the new name as part of celebrations for "Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav," which marks 75 years of Indian independence. The former "Mughal Gardens" road sign was removed, according to Deputy press secretary Navika Gupta.
The Rashtrapati Bhavan contains three gardens styled by Mughal and Persian gardens. The public and government began dubbing "Mughal Gardens" the garden inspired by the same-named garden in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir. However, the gardens were never formally known as "Mughal Gardens." The 15-acre Amrit Udyan has frequently been described as the heart of the presidential palace.
