I managed to squeeze this in before I had to leave. I grabbed a taxi from the hotel and he took me there and drove me all around the Parliament Building (some streets twice) and we had a nice chat. He told me everything he knew- which was a nice bit and I was so very happy to have decided... More

Looked good from the outside but could not get inside due to security because of Independance Day. But worth a look.

The building has twelve gates with the No 1 gate on Parliament Street (Sansad Marg) being the main gate. The architecture is superb and makes one proud... More

I saw all the photographs attached with this attraction on this webpage and was dismayed to find that not even one photo is of Parliament House. Most of the photos listed as Parliament House are of North or South Block or of President's House. Main reason must be that this attraction is totally out of bound for general public, more... More

The parliament building in Delhi, located along the Rajpath, a quaint place that under a certain aspect still shows what was the architectural splendor and the Order of the British imperial colonialism, with most of the buildings in colonial style and of course this building is one of these. Very quaint and above all the panoramic views that can be... More

The complex is amazing. Great architecture and great views of Delhi Gate. The only thing that made me sad is the fact that people in Delhi are so poor and you can see all this rich people and expensive cars and hotels for politicians.

My experience of the Parliament Building was limited to a drive by. Nice to add to the list of monuments but not essential. It is a few blocks walk away from the Le Meridien Hotel. Central drive looks down on India gate.

As previous visitors have stated, it's a pleasant complex but you can't go inside any of the buildings. Worth a look but only for a short while; not a must see though.
