Find your very own small paradise in Delhi at the iconic Mughal Garden. The lush green garden at the presidential palace will open its gate to visitors from February 6 to March 10, 2019. Inspired by the Mughal Gardens in Jammu & Kashmir, the Mughal Garden is home to 10,000 varieties of tulips, over 130 varieties of roses, and many many varieties of seasonal flowers. If you're a nature lover, you really are in for a treat. 

To make things more convenient for you, an online book facility has been opened on this link. There are seven hourly spots everyday starting from 9 AM to 3 PM on weekdays and three hourly spots from 9 AM to 11 AM on the weekends. A fair bit of caution, the hourly booking can put a strain on your wallets with the prices at INR 1,000 for a weekday and INR 2,500 for a weekend. Another option for those who do not want to dive into their pocket is to go through a direct walk-in entry which is free of costs. We must warn you though that the queue here will be an extremely long one.

If you are booking your spot, do remember that only a maximum of 10 visitors can register in a single booking for a weekdays and a maximum of 5 for a weekend. If you are confused about how to book, watch this demonstration video to get a better understanding of this simple process.

The highlights this year are the exotic imported flowers from the Netherlands and Japan. Known as the soul of the presidential palace the garden does have a few dos and don'ts that you must be careful to adhere to. Camera, eatables, water bottles, handbags are not permitted within the garden hence we advise you leave them in your car. Do enjoy the sublime array of colors on display.
