About Rashtrapati Bhavan, Delhi

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.

Rashtrapati Bhavan, Delhi Reviews

  • It looks as beautiful at night as in the morning. Right next to India Gate, it is a nice place to click pictures. Although, there might be entry restrictions and can only click from outside. The area surrounding the president house is also very beautiful with a lot of greenery and nice fountains around.

  • It's big and beautiful.. reminds us of the British Era.. have never been inside but from outside it's looks just beyond anything.. belongs to the head of nation.. the president.. although he is not the head here.. in India its lead by prime minister. Heard it's the biggest bungalow you can call it with 100's of rooms and the staff you can can't in one go.. that's the perks of being the president of this nation.. wonderful

  • One of the most beautiful unsaid places of Delhi. The recently opened museum is the main attraction. One can know everything about the president's life at this museum. Also the museum has some pretty good tech fr info that is awesome. The guided tour is good too. Also the gifts from diff countries that were received by the president are exhibited. Overall the place is great and well maintained.👌

  • Rashtrapati Bhawan Delhi India The office of the President of India. The First Citizen of India. The enacted laws are approved here by the President of India. Very prestigious office.
