Mughal Garden Renamed As Amrit Udyan- A New Name For An Old Landmark

The famous Mughal Gardens at Rashtrapati Bhavan will now be called 'Amrit Udyan,' according to an official announcement published on Saturday.
The beautiful gardens are only exposed to the public once a year and this time the date has been declared as January 31.
President Droupadi Murmu will attend the opening of Rashtrapati Bhavan's gardens - Udyan Utsav 2023 - on Sunday, according to a release.

On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of India's independence, known as 'Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav,' the President of India is happy to rename the Rashtrapati Bhavan gardens 'Amrit Udyan'.

Three other national capital landmarks had their names changed previously by the government: Raj Path was renamed Kartavya Path, Race Course Road was renamed Lok Kalyan Marg, and Aurangzeb Road at the India Gate hexagon was given the name of the late president and Bharat Ratna APJ Abdul Kalam. The renaming of the stretch and other facilities is consistent with the Centre's stated goal of eliminating all traces of colonial thinking.
