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.
