Can't go in, but worth a drive. Clean, organised and a break from the incessant horning. The republic day parade is held in front.

The place is so historic and we have seen it in movies and photos, the same feeling when you see it live, but you can't stop your vehicle there, the guards and police will not allow you to stop, just keep moving your vehicle and watch the place

We went for the change of guard ceremony and the Rashtrapati Bhavan museum on a Saturday morning. Some tips: 1. Reach the venue for the change of guard ceremony at around 930am. You will get good seats and also a good insight into the history of this ceremony 2. Carry your aadhar card with you at all times 3. Pre-book... More

Its one of the best experiences to see Rashtrapati Bhavan while we were in Delhi. Though we didn't get chance to go inside, had to manage from outside only.Our cab driver told special permission is needed to enter inside.

Although the Gardens open for a short period of time only but they are so crowded that it's impossible to view large portions of it. Please don't go expecting it to be a stroll through the Gardens. You are going to be pushed around in a neat stampede incase you decide on going.

Walk around this area and you will realize the grandure the British wanted out of its empire. This was the residence of the Viceroy of India and after independence is the residence of the president of India . A must vist is the museum in Rashtrapati Bhawan .

Id recommend you book online and pay the small fee for the private tour. After extensive security checks you are ushered into the magnificent gardens and then into this unique imposing building. It really is something else and anyone with a modicum of interest in the arts and architecture will find it very rewarding.
