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. Located in New Delhi the buildings are in British style, so one thing to mark is that this piece of Delhi looks like a part of London.

In spite that these buildings are only Government buildings, they also are a rare mix of Indian and British architecture. The The very serious style of building is in clear contrast with the materials used. The colour of beige and red sands use to build these offices are unique and beautiful to admire.

Again good to do it while passing by as due to security and parking can be an issue, nothing really worth spending time as you cant see much

We just drive past around the government building and the parliament building as we are not allowed to park the car inside. Spending less than 7 minutes driving pass all the way and move to another attraction in Delhi..nothing to see inside the area of Gov and parliament building but just the building itself which is quite spectacular..

Our fantastic driver took us by the Parliament Building. Very interesting and was great to be able to see it and explain the historical significance of it to my 10 year old. As we descended from the Parliament there was a great view of the wide avenue below...spilling towards their equivalent of the Arc D' Triomphe.
