Description of Visiting Places

Rashtrapati Bhavan

The magnificent edifice of Rashtrapati Bhavan - the official residence of the President of India - is one of the largest buildings of its kind in the world. This structure of red and cream sandstone which was designed to be the home of the Viceroys of India, took eight years - 1921-1929 - to build and cost about 14 million Rupees. Lord Irwin was the first Viceroy to move into the Viceroy's House, as it was then known, on December 23, 1929.[Read More]
