“External views only”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

The old Viceroy's home turned into a palace for the President. Huge area. No internal access (this may change as the new President is public aware). Situated within a walk of India Gate - the parade area for Republic Day. Government buildings flank the palace. NO snaps of the Defence building but it is, with minor exceptions) a mirror image of teh building across the street.

“Very elegant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Starting from the front gate, with all its details and marble or stone esculpures, to the large and beautiful garden up to the building itself. An impressive and beaultiful construction.
