Rashtrapati Bhavan, is the official residence of the President of India, Pratibha Devisingh Patil. It’s usually off limits to tourists, but through a connection of Kunals we were able to take a peak inside. In 1911, it was decided that the capital of India would be relocated from Calcutta to Delhi and as such a Governor-General’s residence would be needed. British architect Edwin Landseer Lutyens designed the building with colours and details inspired by Indian architecture. With 360 rooms, it is currently the largest residence of any Chief of the State in the world!
Inside there were a lot of artifacts and paintings from the British days. The back yard is home to the Mughal Gardens which are open to the public in the spring. The dome is perfectly lined up with India Gate and the drive up to the palace is quite imposing.
