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.

  • A beautiful and very large.... place and good environment here... The splendour of the Rashtrapati Bhavan is multi-dimensional. It is a vast mansion and its architecture is breathtaking. More than these, it has a hallowed existence in the annals of democracy for being the residence of the President of the largest democracy in the world. Few official residential premises of the Head of the State in the world will match the Rashtrapati Bhavan in terms of its size, vastness and its magnificence.
