Rashtrapati Bhavan, New Delhi

4.6
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.

  • This place well deserve a 5* if not more, but I have deducted 1* only because of two reasons: 1) charges of Rs.50/- for visiting inside should be waived as it is a right of citizens / tax payers to see the Home of the highest authority of Govt atleast once in lifetime. 2) only a minor portion of the house is open for visitors, though it covers the main Hall & dining area, few more areas / rooms may be considered for allowing visit for the residents. Otherwise very well maintained & well deserve a visit.
  • Wah..It is the place which seems like a best place in India. I have visited this place with my Wife, Daughter and brother. We got a chance to look all places inside it, where our president do a meeting, library and his all others activity. Most important thing is which we see almost more than 100 lacks required on monthly basis to manage it, may be the number which i have written not correct but it should be similar. So i will suggest whenever you got a chance, sou should visit with your family.
  • What a structure perfectly complimenting the first citizen of the country. Entering into the premises is permitted from Thursday to Sunday from 9.00 to 4.00 pm, also can make online request in advance, but One would get great pleasure by looking from outside the security itself which if Visited during sunset will enjoy great view in day light and also in awesome illumination post sunset. If planning to visit inside it should be planned during change of guard ceremony which happens every Saturday 8.00 to 10.00 am or when the mughal garden inside the premises is open to public during February and March
  • This place is one of the best residence of the premier of any country if you compare. The garden is awesome and worth to visit it's amazing that just for one person they arranged and built such a huge building or almost a monument. Anyway it's very good for one visit.
  • The palace is in the cleanest, best maintained area of New Delhi but it's not possible to get close to it, you can only view from a distance. However the immediate area is also very nice including the Parliament Building and Minsitry of Defence so it's worth visiting the area.

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists. For budget accommodations, consider the neighborhood of Paharganj, just west of the New Delhi railway station. Noisy and packed with peddlers of every kind, the area offers some of the least expensive rooms located relatively near major attractions. Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors. Always call or visit the website in advance to check on prices and amenities included.
