about parliament house

Parliament House is a monument representing ‘The People of India’. Also known as Sansad Bhawan, the Parliament House in Delhi is the hub of political activity of India. This superstructure located at Sansad Marg cannot be missed from Rajpath; it is surrounded by lush, sprawling lawns, soothing water fountains & a national flag, flowing in the light breeze. The Parliament House comprises of 2 houses- ‘Rajya Sabha’ (Council of States) and ‘Lok Sabha’ (State of the People). It is here that bills are passed and India is shaped and reshaped and foreign relations are discussed. 


This beautiful circular structure is a landmark example of the British architectural marvel. Designed by Herbert Baker, the circular colonnaded structure was originally known as the Circular House, when it was opened in 1927. In the immense structure, what catches the eye first are the pillars that seem to stand like sentinels. Wander around the voluminous corridor and you would find 247 of them.

If you are in Delhi around the Republic Day or New Year’s Eve, you will be awestruck to see this grandeur architectural building lit up in thousands of yellow halogen bulbs which adds to the glitter and bling of the capital city and also attracts many photo-fanatics. Permits to visit the Parliament are available from the reception office on Raisina Road, but you will need a letter of introduction from your respective embassy.
