The area is very nice. Gardens looked after extremely well and the buildings are just lovely. Make sure you have your camera ready.

Although the security is very tight one can still get a good distant photo of this very impressive building. Worth getting out and walking near the closed gates.

Located close to the India gate and houses the parliament. A magnificient piece of architecture to admire and evokes sense of nationalistic pride. Worth a visit.

Arriving here on a Sunday allows you to get closer to the parliament buildings. Not much to see, though, and certainly nothing to spend time on if you haven't seen the major sights.

In spite that these buildings are only Government buildings, they also are a rare mix of Indian and British architecture.
