  • Originally called the House of Parliament, it was designed by the British architects Sir Edwin Lutyens and Sir Herbert Baker in 1912-1913 as part of their wider mandate to construct a new administrative capital city for British India. Construction of Parliament House began in 1921 and it was completed in 1927. The opening ceremony of the Parliament House, which then housed the Central Legislative Assembly, was performed on 18 January 1927 by His Excellency Lord Irwin, Viceroy of India. The third session of Central Legislative Assembly was held in this house on 19 January 1927. The Parliament Museum, opened in 2006, stands next to the Parliament House.
