The expansive Mughal Gardens, which span a total area of 15 acres and are considered to be the heart and soul of the Presidential Palace, have earned this reputation. The Mughal Grounds of Jammu and Kashmir, the gardens surrounding the Taj Mahal, and even miniature paintings from India and Persia all served as sources of inspiration for the design of these gardens.
It is a feast for the eyes to come across beautiful butterflies and scented flora. In addition, there is a greenhouse, a nursery, an excellent bonsai collection, and an office for a horticulturist. THINGS TO DO AT MUGHAL GARDENS:

This project's overarching goal was to make the President's House a more eco-friendly habitat by effectively using available resources and tapping into alternative energy sources. President K.R. Narayanan worked in conjunction with the Centre for Science and Environment to replenish the groundwater supply on the presidential estate to collect rainwater for storage and use. During the administration of C. Rajagopalachari, a portion of the grounds was devoted to cultivating wheat as an act of goodwill toward resolving the issue of an inadequate food supply throughout the nation. Herbal Gardens, Tactile Gardens for the Visually Handicapped, Musical Gardens, Bio-Fuel Park, Spiritual and Nutrition Garden, and more were some of the gardens President Kalam had created as part of his contribution.
