“Lutyens' architectural masterpiece”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

The sheer quality and scale of these Lutyens buildings are testament to the opulence of the Raj. Even the air conditioning units that now hang from many of the windows fail to dent their magnificence. If the weather isn't too crushingly hot, walk along the Raj path / Kingsway towards Viceregal House / Presidential Palace from the arch. At one point the house virtually disappears from view due to the Raj path's undulation before revealing itself in all it's glory like some sort of monumental striptease.

“Pride of India”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Though we were not allowed to enter the premises as we didn't have the pre permission required to visit this Iconic premise. But it is indeed a must see place even if one doesnt get to go inside, The sheer magnificence of the Rajpath which leads to Rashtrapati bhawan is obviously a must go for me the next time i am in delhi.
