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.
