  • FRI Dehradun is one of the oldest institutions of its kind and acclaimed the world over. The institute’s main building is an impressive edifice, marrying Greco-Roman and Colonial styles of architecture. It also has a Botanical Garden in the complex. It is amazing for photography specially in the later part of the day during sunsets.
