Please make a visit to this place. Entry ticket is Rs.50/-. You can see the palatial building with lot of wooden fixtures. Golf Ground surrounded with greenery is worth watching. Guide will accompany you to show the various places inside this Raj Bhavan. Please carry I.D. PROOF with you,

The Raj Bhavan and the old governors house at snow point must not be confused. The Raj Bhavan is a truly gorgeous building in classical British style with extensive gardens and other properties around it.

this place is best in Nainital especially if you are going with elderly or those with difficulty in walking / climbing stairs.Guided tour starts @ 11 am therefore don't do before that & also stick to the timings or else wait for another hour. best is to go by taxi & then one can easily walk to the main building...

This is an excellent illustration of the British Raj era architecture. The wooden structure is very unique. Obviously, this is much more than a home for the colonial goveeners. Worth spending about an hour to cover this, access to this heritage site is restricted. Good place to go while visiting Nainital.

You can't even get into the chambers of the house. Huge hype for the house. The exterior view is beautiful, but they do not allow you to enter into the rooms. No photography allowed inside the Governor's house. The golf course and the scenery is not something that you cannot see in other places.

I don't know why it has been avoided by many tourists.might be because of not known about it. Governor house is like a queen palace surrounded by oak trees and mountains. Entry charges is around 50 INR and you will get guide too in that ticket. Entry time is not in-between the hours but at O clock like 2,3,4 etc.... More
