On Monday, the University of Delhi changed the name of the North campus Mughal Garden. Now the garden will be called by the name of ”Gautam Buddha Centenary’. Earlier, on 29 January, the Rashtrapati Bhavan renamed its Mughal Gardens as Amrit Udyan.
According to the notification of 27 January, “Delhi University competent authority has given the approval to the new name of the garden ‘Gautam Buddha Centenary’ Garden.” University also said that the garden doesn’t have any mutual design. Moreover, the statue of Gautam Buddha has been standing in the center of the garden for 15 years.
As per officials, Mughal Gardens have some special features by which one can know this is related to the Mughals. Such as a pond, fountains on either side, flower plants, and trees. Mughal gardens especially have peach and litchi fruit trees but North Campus Mughal Garden doesn’t match any of these characteristics.

Flower Show in March 2023
University has talked about the timing of changing the name of the garden. It said the university may host a Flower Show in March this year. Therefore, the name will be changed in that event. Also, the recommendation has been sent to the Vice Chancellor in mid-January.
Further, the officials said, “We will like to prepare pamphlets for the flower show that will be held in March. 15 days back, we sent the recommendation to the DU Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Singh for changing the name.” Additionally, it is a great coincidence that the Mughal Garden was also renamed.
