Rashtrapati Bhavan

Rashtrapati Bhavan is the official residence and working area of the President of India.  Covering an area of 320 acres, it was designed by the British architect Edwin Lutyens.  Originally built to be the palace of the Governor-General of India, it was completed in 1929 and inaugurated in 1931.  In 1947, India gained independence, and shortly afterwards the now ceremonial Governor-General was succeeded by the President when India became a Republic in 1950.

Rashtrapati Bhavan is known for the splendour of its architecture and for the incorporation of both Indian and British elements in its construction.  The residence is an enormous 340 roomed mansion surrounded by the delightful Mughal Gardens.

Rashtrapati Bhavan can be found on Rajpath, New Delhi.
