Rashtrapati Bhavan

Rashtrapati Bhavan is the official residence of the President of India, which is situated towards the west end of the Rajpath. It is a blend of both Mughal and European architectural styles with a copper dome and around 340 bedecked rooms. Visitors can seek permission from the Government of India Tourist Office for entering the premises of the Rashtrapati Bhavan.

This place is also famous for its Mughal Gardens which is open for public between February and March. The building of Rashtrapati Bhavan was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens and Sir Herbert Baker. It was once an official residence of the Viceroy of British India and was popularly known as Viceregal Lodge.

This structure has a neo-Buddhist copper dome along with a circular hall, known as the Durbar Hall. It is the chief venue for all the official ceremonies of the Government of India
