It’s safe to say that we’ve all wanted to see the inside of Rashtrapati Bhavan at some point in our lives. And guess what? Doing it is just a click away!
We'd like you to make a note—we haven't had the chance to take the tour ourselves, but we've heard that its a well-organised, solid tour that everyone needs to take at least once.
A beautiful and massive colonial edifice that is also the grandest residence in the country (albeit shrouded in secrecy), it's definitely a place you'd want to visit. Built by the famous architects, Sir Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker, the H-shaped building covers an area of 5 acres on a 330 acre estate, which is huge.
Rashtrapati Bhavan consists of three circuits or sections, and all three are open to visitors. However, they’re all closed on separate days. That’s why the best days to visit are Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, because you’ll find all three circuits open on these days. You’ll get to see the Forecourt, Durbar Hall, Library, Clock Tower, Stables and yes, the beautifully magnificent Mughal Gardens! The visits start at 9am and go on till 4pm with a time difference of 30 minutes each, giving you enough time to explore the place where Mr. President stays. You'll also be charged a nominal fee for the visit.
