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.

What a structure perfectly complimenting the first citizen of the country. Entering into the premises is permitted from Thursday to Sunday from 9.00 to 4.00 pm, also can make online request in advance, but One would get great pleasure by looking from outside the security itself which if Visited during sunset will enjoy great view in day light and also in awesome illumination post sunset. If planning to visit inside it should be planned during change of guard ceremony which happens every Saturday 8.00 to 10.00 am or when the mughal garden inside the premises is open to public during February and March
This place is one of the best residence of the premier of any country if you compare. The garden is awesome and worth to visit it's amazing that just for one person they arranged and built such a huge building or almost a monument. Anyway it's very good for one visit.
Official residence to the Head of world's largest democracy, Rashtrapati(President) of Republic of India. This is the world's largest Official residence of any state head. This magnificent building has silently witnessed India becoming Independent in 1947 and becoming a Republic in 1950. A pride of the Nation and an excellent example of fusion of British, French, European, Arabic and Dharmic(Indian) styles. This house was designed by Sir Edwin Lutynes and his friend Herbert Baker.
Excellent piece of British architecture.. you enter here and feel the energy. A must visit place for every history lover!
Place of President of India. A must place to visit in the capital of India. Nice architecture and well maintained gardens to explore especially during morning hours.
