Rashtrapati Bhavan, New Delhi

4.5
One of the largest presidential residences in the world, Rashtrapati Bhavan serves as the official home of the president of India. A 130 hectare (320 acre) sprawling estate opened in 1929, the site stands as a classic example of Indian architecture at its best. The first stop on your approach will be the Jaipur Column, a bronze lotus flower designed by the same British architect who created the surrounding elephant carvings and cobra fountains. Inside the mansion, 340 halls, offices, and private quarters provide enough space for many employees, guests, and residents. The adjacent presidential gardens serve as a pristine outdoor sanctuary, designed in the Persian style. Check the official website to book your visit and find the garden's opening dates. For travelers who use our world travel planner, New Delhi holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Rashtrapati Bhavan and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • It looks as beautiful at night as in the morning. Right next to India Gate, it is a nice place to click pictures. Although, there might be entry restrictions and can only click from outside. The area surrounding the president house is also very beautiful with a lot of greenery and nice fountains around.
  • It's big and beautiful.. reminds us of the British Era.. have never been inside but from outside it's looks just beyond anything.. belongs to the head of nation.. the president.. although he is not the head here.. in India its lead by prime minister. Heard it's the biggest bungalow you can call it with 100's of rooms and the staff you can can't in one go.. that's the perks of being the president of this nation.. wonderful
  • One of the most beautiful unsaid places of Delhi. The recently opened museum is the main attraction. One can know everything about the president's life at this museum. Also the museum has some pretty good tech fr info that is awesome. The guided tour is good too. Also the gifts from diff countries that were received by the president are exhibited. Overall the place is great and well maintained.👌
  • The infrastructure and the central Park are awesome. And Rajpath is looking fabulous for formula 1 racing. This is the best Road in India. Awesome scene of India gate also.
