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.

  • Heaven in India. India's king home. It's mostly beautiful historical palace for India's President. Wonderful architecture and infrastructure with all basic amenities like library, gardens, accommodation for guests too available here.

  • This place is a must visit, to get a feel of architectural beauty, patriotism, the prestigious Indian democratic system, to recall the time of the Britishers, and to finally thank God for an independent nation. For visitors, this is a must must must visit, you just cannot miss this place if you are in Delhi. This pretty much shows you a glimpse of the administrative legacy. The President's house also has a ceremony called the change of guards, every Sunday (morning, 10 am). It is a lot of fun to see the way a simple act of change of guards can also be done in a royal manner.

  • The Presidential Palace and Estate is the official home of the President of India located in New Delhi, India. It consists of living mansion (the 340-room building) that has the president's official residence, halls, guest rooms and offices. The entire President Estate is spread across about 321 acres of land. The President Estate includes Mughal Gardens, many lawns, large open spaces, residences of bodyguards and staff, stables, other offices and utilities. It is one of the largest residences of a head of state in the world. The British architect Edwin Lutyens was the architect and designer of this marvel. You need to go there yourself to get a feel of the majestic grandeur. The ideal time to visit is during winters, and especially when the entire estate is lighted and decked up for special occasions like Republic Day 26 Jan and 3-4 days following it as well Independence Day 15 Aug every year.

  • The President of India resides at the Rashtrapati Bhavan. Truly a stunning palatial monument , in the lutyens area of new Delhi, the grand approach to the President's residence with India gate at one end and parliament house on the side followed by the south and North block government offices and the prime ministers office makes it all the more strategic. Visiting heads of State are treated to the grandeur this Palace offers , steeped in rich Indian history. The Ashoka Hall where receptions are held and the adjacent sit down banqueting area are grandeur personified. The Rashtrapati Bhavan is open for tours in some areas on a few days every week with prior security clearance. But the real glory of the Rashtrapati Bhavan is when one is invited to visit for a Banquet or for a beating the retreat ceremony or for a swearing in ceremony of cabinet Ministers.
