If you’re visiting Delhi, Rashtrapati Bhawan is a must-visit monument that you (or anyone) should not miss. It is the most magnificent monument in India which signifies not only India’s regal history but also its power as the world’s largest Democracy.
Rashtrapati means President and Bhawan means Home, therefore, as the name suggests Rashtrapati Bhawan is the home to India’s President. It is surrounded with lush green gardens manicured in the most beautiful (and perfect) ways which are filled with color, fragrances, and aesthetic Mughal charm.
It has 4 floors and 340 rooms spread over the floor area of 200,000 square feet. Each room has its own significance which will leave you awe-struck.
Earlier, access to the Bhawan was restricted to the government officials only but now things have changed. You can cherish the regal history associated with the Bhawan and have a look at all the National treasures and artifacts dating back to the Colonial era.
