about rashtrapati bhavan

The official residence of the President of India, Rashtrapati Bhavan is spread over 320 acres, that includes the main building, the beautiful Mughal gardens, the residences of bodyguards and staffs, stables, offices and vast open spaces. An erstwhile residence of the Viceroy of India, Rashtrapati Bhavan is the brainchild of the British architect, Edwin Landseer Lutyens. Quite distinct from other British colonial buildings, one can detect an aesthetic usage of Indian designs and hints of Mughal and European architectural components. Lutyens claimed that the huge central dome was inspired by the Roman Patheon.

The main building itself occupies a 200,000 sq.ft area and has 4 floors encompassing 340 rooms in all. Needless to say, the overall splendour of this place is multi-dimensional. Only a handful of the residential premises of the Heads of State from all over the world can match this building's size and magnificence. Sitting at the Eastern end of the Kingsway or Rajpath, Rashtrapati Bhavan faces India Gate, which lies at the Western end of the road.

Two huge Central Secretariat buildings make up the North and South block on either side of the Rashtrapati Bhavan, comprising of various ministries under the Government of India. Behind the buildings are the Mughal Gardens spread over 250 acres; they are open to the public from 14 February- 14 March. All buildings closed to the public, but discussed features can be seen from Rajpath and the Mughal Gardens.
