Even though we only saw the structure from the outside, the building was a testament to how the British Empire positioned themselves to rule over India- Bold and Powerful. There are a lot of gardens around and it is a nice resting spot but I wouldn't give it more than 45 minutes.(If you are only seeing it from outside that... More

Had the honour and privilege to be invited for an event to visit Rastrapathi Bhavan. And no doubt it was one of the time ocassion. The spread, gradeur, beautifulness and elegance surely bowls you over. This place so much oozes with power stating how much importance it holds in India's history of events and current state of politics.

While on a trip to Delhi we had a chance to see this place. The structure is huge and it suits for the... More

A beautiful location for photography also. This place depicts the sculpture of the olden days. Very beautifully built structures attract the tourists. exactly Opposite to this India... More
