Rashtrapati Bhavan, New Delhi

(1,300+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
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.

  • The living quarters of India's president are definitely worth a visit. The gardens are beautiful and are open after the rain ends. If you can also get there in time to see the ceremony with the guards...  more »

  • I been there for some photography purpose while changing of guard celebrate like ceremony. Its so beautiful and iconic. Every Indian must visit. I have seen many visitors from outside of India. Tripod are allowed there, need to carry your valid identity card to get entry.
  • No need of introduction Abode of Head of India . Luxury , awesomeness , love , patriotic feeling. Love over here cant be depicted in words. Please I would recommend you to visit this place atleast once in a life time.
  • This is review from outside the Rashtrapati Bhavan. The view is more spectacular when you look at it from your naked eyes than from a pic. The place is very clean and the security is watching you all the time. Alert: When ever you park your vehicle , make sure there is someone with the vehicle, otherwise you'll be in trouble if the vehicle is alone. Walk the entire Rajmarg and feel the history as well. The best time to visit this place is surely during the independence day on August 15 and Republic Day on 26th of January every year. You'll see tanks running down and vibrating your ground, the fighter jets zooming past your ears and the synchronizing beats created by the marching soldiers of the Indian Army will give you a moment you'll never forget in your life.
  • The biggest official presidential residence in the world. What a marvelous edifice from the British era. Can't get very near to it, unless of course you have an appointment or invitation. But it's a delight to see Rashtrapati Bhavan anyway.
  • The one and the only Presidential place in India. Really nicely maintained . The beautiful garden around is like a garland. Nice transportation all around and premiere location.Need to take a walk to reach near the bhawan. Safety and security is at high alert.
