    The Mughal Gardens, often called as the soul of the presidential palace, was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1917, but the landscaping was done and the trees were planted only around 1928-29.

    Former President, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, had inaugurated a 'fragrant rosery' on one of the three terrace gardens during his tenure.
