“Legacy of the Raj”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

This former Governor General of India residence is currently the official residence of the President of India and what a residence it is. One of the most beautiful and aesthetically superior residences of a head of state in anywhere in the world, hands down. The amazing Mughal Gardens only adds to the beauty of this palace.

“home of the President”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

I was disappointed as I was not allowed the first time to see the building as the building was closed. I am not sure why. However, I got the chance the other day, and I was thrilled to get a closer look. The Bhawan is worth visiting. It has beautiful architecture
