Another drive by but such an impressive set of buildings

Architecture on such a grand scale. Has to be seen if on a visit to the diplomatic quarter of Delhi.

This place isnt something outstanding but it still is worth a visit. You get to see how well the place has been maintained and designed and what a luxury it must be for the president of India to stay at such a location. As a citizen of India, you have got to be here if you are in delhi.

Walked here from India Gate (it's not a short walk, but the views back are worth it). Impressive buildings and grounds, immaculately kept. Gardens filled with flowers could have done with a good watering - the metre-high cosmos plants were looking particularly in need of a drink. Unfortunately, it's impossible to get up to the gates of the former Viceroy... More

The President's House is a wonderful Lutyen's Delhi wonder. It was made in the Colonisers' time (Britishers) as the Viceroy Lodge. It's a beautiful area with excellent sorroundings. It also houses the famous Mughal Gardens which opens only in February (spring time)

We toured as a group walking past these buildings. So cant comment on interior. They were built when British in control but by India firm. The buildings are essentially twins and are quite nice to view. There were monkeys on them.

The whole area is vast, designed by Edwin Lutyens for a mighty empire. Ironically they were completed not long before independence. As vast monumental architecture it is impressive.

I didn't have time to go inside nor find out if it was even allowed. However, the grounds and building are impressive. I think it best to take the long walk from India Gate to here. You walk up a long gently sloping hill. Look back at The Gate in the distance, and it's impressive. Do be aware of security... More
