I guess the security part can be pretty understandable considering that it is the presidential palace of the country. The place is huge and spread over a wide area. There is only till a point that you can gain access and this lies at one end of the long road that runs from the india Gate

After the frenetic streets of New Delhi, I had a lovely stroll through manicured lawns until I reached the gates. The Architecture is somewhat overwhelming and seems out of place in Asia. Saying that it is a feast for the eyes though
