“Amazing”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

The gallery's, the displays, the quiet, the aura, everything just jumps at you. Amazing for those who want to experience the power corridors riddled with fantastic history of the country. The staff is extremely helpful & polite. The feeling of walking into the place is unmistakably supreme probably because of the expansive structure itself

“President's palace”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

President's palace or the Rashtrapati Bhavan situated on the Rajpath is the official residence of the President of India. Near to India Gate you can wander to take a look at this palace which was designed by Edwin Lutyen and built in 1931. It covers 4.5 acres of land and has 340 rooms, 37 salons, 74 lobbies, 18 staircases and 37 fountains. You must visit this place during late evening...with such a fabulous lighting all around the place...Although you are not allowed to go anywhere near by the building

“An outside view”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Entering the gardens is on strictly regulated days. And standing in front of the gate also is not readily permitted. But it is possible to get a reasonable photograph through the iron gates. An interesting place, it is worth a visit.

“Impressive”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

It is a welll maintained and well guarded area, an amazing architecture with British influence, and i think it is the largest presidents house ive ever see, i think its even bigger than the white house in the U.S., there is a beautiful fountain from outside the main complex and your are free to take photos as long as you like. Beautiful complex and highly recommend.

“Marvellous!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Rashtrapati Bhavan looks like you are in a different part of the world compared to the rest of India. it is immaculately clean and the buidlings are beautifully. It is in a no stop zone for safety purposes, however a drive around allows you to see its splendour sufficiently. There are tons of policemen around so do not trying to stop as they will try and move you along.
