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.

  • 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.👌
  • 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.
  • The office of the President of India. The First Citizen of India. The enacted laws are approved here by the President of India. Very prestigious office. The surrounding Gardens are magnificent with various kinds of flowers and various different species of plants. The entry inside this area is absolutely prohibited. The construction and architecture of this building monument is magnificent.
  • It is a neat and clean place and gardening and greenery is just mind blowing. These buildings tells us about the British architecture and colonial period. There are so many places to visit in the area so try to keep your luggage minimum and have fun. Enjoy Thankyou
  • 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.
