Want to take a stroll down a colourful path amid a backdrop of greenery in the lap of nature's exquisites, where the first citizen of the country walks every morning?


Then you can, from Friday, as Rashtrapati Bhavan is opening the gates to the sprawling 15-acre Mughal Gardens for around a month with special attraction being floral wall of dahlias encircling the circular garden and tiny China oranges.

Over 2,500 Dahlias, which have been raised by 35 dedicated staff gardeners of the President's estate with extra help from 120-odd temporary staff, will showcase the colour theme of yellow and white.
