“Seen only outside (Change of Guard)”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Witnessed the Ceremonial Change of Guard on Saturday. It was pure luck-by-chance. The timings are from 10:00 am on Saturdays, and if booked one day in advance, inside access is available.

“Impressive”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

This is yet another huge structure in Delhi, very impressive. It was only let down by the smog that was there on the day.

“Magnificient...”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

My son was thrilled to bits to be standing right outside the Rashtrapati Bhavan, which he had otherwise seen only on television. The entiresight is picturesque, with all the minitries and the PMO around it. And itsclose proximity to the India gate which is also a must visit.

“Drive by this place”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

If possible, drive by Rashtarpati bhawan.
After striking a deal, autos / taxis will take you there.
You will get few minutes for photography infront of the gate of Rashtrapati Bhawan, which has a green dome. Autos / Taxis not allowed to park, hence they will be slowly going in a big circle till you join back.
North and south blocks on either side, prior to reaching gate of Rashtrapati Bhawan.
