Rashtrapati Niwas - Review
This stupendous structure ringed by pine woods standing tall on the observatory hill at the western end of Shimla ridge was built in the 19th century as the residence of Viceroy Lord Dufferin.
Now known as the Rashtrapati Niwas or the President’s residence, it has a brilliant style of construction with a typical British flavour to it. A grand fireplace faces the main entrance. Verandas and terraces surround the entire building at different levels which allures tourists and make the lodge totally immaculate. This magnificent building was also featured as Rani Mukerji’s college in the National Award winning movie Black in 2005.

Rashtrapati Niwas, Shimla Reviews
Great historic place to visit. Amazed to know the information about architecture of this building which was built around 150 years ago. Enjoyed my every second spent here. Awesome views of mountains. I recommend every shimla visitor to visit this place. The moments spent here are unforgettable for life. (Also a great place for love birds😉).
A must visit place specially the inside tour. You will get an opportunity to see the British era. And when you are about to end your inside trip, you will be taken to central hall it's glance will make you ecstatic.
It was great experience to visit this place. History you can not only just read it can feel too. Great architecture. Great environment. Must visit if you’re in Shimla.
Great place to visit a piece of history, well maintained architectural monument and gardens, lawns. The guided tour (also available in English) of the building with historic facts associated with the building is also enjoyable. It can be a great half day to spend with family friends.
Loved this place. It is an historic place earlier used by the then viceroy Lord dufferin, now serves as the institute of advanced studies. It is spread on a vast area with Elizabethen architecture and lush green garden. Interiors are very beautiful and iconic.
