Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Almost the whole area is cordoned off. You cannot go much near still it is a site to see. Huge place spread vastly. Every indian looking type of person taking lots of pics is supposed to be a terrorist. So be cautious. You can just pass by being in your car. You can't stop your vehicle. It has many blocks all are an art in themselves.
  • Beautiful jitna tarif karo utni kam
  • Gardens are good. Nothing much apart from that. Lot of restrictions (obviously). Be prepared to walk a lot. Outside food not allowed. Water allowed. No food, water available inside.
  • This is a beautiful place with beautiful flowers & beautiful surroundings. Built on the pattern of Mughal Gardens. it's only open for general public in the month of February and March. Must visit the place if you are in Delhi in the month of feb or march. Mobile,cameras,car remote key are not allowed in the garden.
  • Jawab nahi mere desh ka im indian
