#15 of 1,012 in Things to do in New Delhi
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.

  • Home of The President Of India and also a good place to visit. The building is a an architectural marvel and one can easily spend ample time just watching the different designs. The security is obviously stringent. Neatly maintained of course. A must visit when you are visiting Delhi. You will not be disappointed!

One of Biggest President's Residential estate in the world. An architectural landmark. A must visit for tourist enthusiast.
  • Home of Indian president. Good place. Must visit. Well maintained. Nice build up. Building structure is too good. This decision to build a residence in New Delhi for the British Viceroy was taken after it was decided during the Delhi Durbar in December 1911 that the capital of India would be relocated from Calcutta to Delhi. When the plan for a new city, New Delhi, adjacent to end south of Old Delhi, was developed after the Delhi Durbar, the new palace for the Viceroy of India was given an enormous size and prominent position.
