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.

  • This is where the president of India lives and entertains state guests. Generally it is not open to tourists (one needs to get a pass in advance by following proper procedures), but at times during the spring one can get entry to see the flower show. It is a majestic building, one of the crown jewels of the British Raj. There are a number of huge gardens in the complex.

  • A worth visiting place both for locals and tourists.One can book his/her visit beforehand online. Security concerns, so safety rules are strictly followed and visitors are frisked. Photography is restricted in certain areas. All public visits are guided, hence one can thoroughly enjoy and engage the guide on meaningful questions and information. This is the official residence of the President of India. Visits are advised on non-summer time, though visits available in summer too. The adjoining Mughal Gardens full blooms in January/February. One can also visit the Rashtrapati Museum, which is about 1.5 kms away from the main Bhavan, within the complex, and one can book the visit there online as well. One needs about a couple of hours to visit the Rashtrapati Bhavan and additional about one hour to see the museum.

  • Always wanted to visit the viceroy house and finally did it today. It's very well maintained British architect for public visit. I was astonished by the grand felling of the rooms and sculpture and portrays. Must visit this historical architect and the mogul garden.

  • It is largest residence of a head of state in the world. Well maintained British era building. Booking to visit Rashtrapati Bhawan is online through their website. Book at least 3-4 days in advance because they take 2-3 days to confirm your booking. It cost ₹50 per person. A guide will guide you through.

  • Absolute majestic wonder. The residence is overflowing with regality and poise. The only thing i felt was lacking was the maintenance of the gardens which could be far far better.
