Rashtrapati Bhavan - Review

This building which was completed in 1929 was meant to be the seat of the Viceroy in the British period in India. After the independence however, this stately site became the seat of Indian democracy. Rashtrapati Bhavan is located on Raisina hill and is a beautiful sprawling edifice with 340 different rooms built in to meet any social or political needs. There are beautiful domes and statues and sculptures of animals adorning the building on all sides.

Although the public cannot access this building without special permission it is definitely a sight to be beheld from the outside at the very least. This amazing place holds the highest importance in politics in India and stands in honor of the world’s largest democracy. The tall white Jaipur Column which stands in the middle of the front courtyard is a strong symbol of the country. The Mughal Gardens which are a part of this complex are open to the public in the month of February when the flowering plants are at their beautiful best.
