Claim:

Mughal gardens have been renamed to 'Dr. Rajendra Prasad Garden'.

Fact Check:

The claim is false. No such reports stating the name change were found.

The official website of the Rashtrapati Bhavan still states the gardens as Mughal Gardens.

"The rumours have been viral for quite a while, maybe four or five days, but it is not true. There has not been any name change of the kind as yet," BOOMLive quoted an official at the Rashtrapati Bhavan as saying.
