“One of the best place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Actually interpreting to `kings way', Rajpath was constructed by the British to infringe and inspire.
It was expected to scare and drive home the focus that they were in-control. Indeed, today, when you make your far up on Raisina Hill, you let in the wanted effect that the British Empire was needing to take off.
Rajpath is the street that runs from National Stadium/india door towards Raisina Hill, past North and South Block and onto `rashtrapati bhavan'-which used to be the British Viceroys castle.
The Viceroy's royal residence now has the Presidet of India and his office, while the North and South Block house Government services and Military work places.

“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

One of my favorite Delhi spots!! If you go, do the whole walk: from India Gate up to Rashtrapati Bhawan (or viceversa).

“The Main Road of delhi !!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

The Main road between India gate and rashtrapati Bhawan becomes the centrestage during the Republic day celebrations and becomes lively during the summer evenings with people enjoying themselves on the garden lawns while playing, boating, eating or just strolling !!

“Spacious and beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Surprisingly wide boulevards, lovely gardens and pristine white buildings...such a contrast to the hustle and bustle of Old Delhi which we had walked through ( and also enjoyed).
