Rashtrapati Bhawan:

This image is showing Rashtrapati Bhawan is the official residence of the President of India. It was designed by the two famous British architects, Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker. This impressive building is known for its imposing size and aesthetic use of 330 acres of land. It is essentially built in neo-Roman style but incorporates Indian elements like Buddhist railings, Islamic pavilions and Hindu brackets. Built on the Raisina Hill, the Bhawan was first occupied in 1929 A.D. The Rashtrapati Bhawan can be entered from the east gate by a wide flight of steps leading to the portico. The magnificent Durbar Hall has a spectacular dome, the replica of a Buddhist stupa. It has stately courts and spacious state rooms. The Darbar Hall and the Ashoka Hall have been the venues of many assemblies and ceremonies of national and international significance. The entire complex contains 340 rooms. Outside the Rashtrapati Bhawan gates, stands the famous Jaipur column—a stone pillar installed by Maharaja of Jaipur. The famous Mughal Garden in the premises of the Rashtrapati Bhawan is known for its collection of unique flowers, plants and trees.
