Formerly built as the residence for the Viceroy of India during the British dominion. But today's Rashtrapati Bhavan, home to the president of the world's largest democracy. It was Sir Lutyens who perceived the H-shaped building, covering an area of 5 acres on a 330-acre estate. This presidential home has a total of 340 rooms spread over four floors, 2.5 kilometres of corridors and 190 acres of garden area.
Painstaking efforts of thousands of labourers this prestigious building completed in the year 1929. From being a representation of imperial rule and authority, it is today emblematic of Indian democracy and its secular, plural and inclusive traditions. Rashtrapati Bhavan has since independence hosted defence statement functions, swearing in of its leaders, honoured its brave hearts and achievers, has heard the speeches of world leaders, signed pacts and treaties with several countries, celebrated India’s Independence and Republic Day functions along with other festivals.
