Viceroy's Palace Garden


RBhavan Mughal GardenThe Viceroy's Palace Garden, located in New Delhi, India is considered one of the most beautiful in the world.  It is part of the property of Rashtrapati Bhavan, the official residence of the President of India

The garden covers 13 acres.  It was designed in the late 1920s by Edwin Lutyens.  There are beautiful ornamental fountains, walls, gazebos, flowering trees, gorgeous flowers, and shrubs.  Indians call it "God's own Heaven."                                                 

The gardens are open to the public only two weeks out of the year, in late February and early March.  Expect security to be tight, but it is certainly well-worth the visit!

  1. There are some fabulous things to see in India, but I've also known everyone who travels there gets sick. Sadly, I shall probably miss some fabulous places.

    1. I have students who go there all the time. I guess if you're from India, the germs don't bother you.

  2. Hi Sherry - Lutyens was an amazing architect ... and was responsible for 'New Delhi' situated within the metropolis of Delhi ... lots of influence around Britain and elsewhere ... I bet the gardens are worth seeing - cheers Hilary
