Rashtrapati Bhavan

The President’s house is the official residence of the President of India. It was in 1803, that the Lake East India Company defeated the Mughals and went to transfer kingship upon them. This is when the English appointed the first resident of what was then the capital of Mughals. After this, two important officials, Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker went on to form a dream city around the Raisina Hills. This later went on to be named as New Delhi. This was a more planned and developed city and one of the most important buildings in this place is the Rashtrapati Bhavan. There are blocks and chambers inside this huge building that is stretched from one end to the other. During the evening, this building is lit up in festive light and it is a magical treat to the eyes.

प्रधानमंत्री का शपथ ग्रहण समारोह हो या किसी पद्म सम्मान का समारोह, टीवी पर राष्ट्रपति भवन से जब भी कोई का कार्यक्रम प्रसारित होता है तो मन वहां जाने का करने लगता है। राष्ट्रपति भवन दुनिया के सबसे बड़े लोकतंत्र भारत के राष्ट्रपति का निवास स्थल है। इस इमारत के निर्माण में 17 साल का समय लगा है। इसका निर्माण कार्य 1912 में शुरु हुआ और 1929 में यह बन कर तैयार हुआ। इसे रायसीना हिल पर बनाया गया है। राष्ट्रपति भवन 330 एकड़ में फैली हुई है और इसमें कार्यालय, अतिथि कक्षों और कर्मचारी कक्षों समेत 340 कमरे हैं। इस परिसर में 74 बरामदे, 37 सभागृह, 18 सीढ़ियां और 37 फव्वारे हैं। राष्ट्रपति भवन वास्तुकला का उत्कृष्ट नमूना है। आकार, विशालता और भव्यता के मामले में कुछ ही राष्ट्र प्रमुख के सरकारी आवासीय परिसर राष्ट्रपति भवन की बराबरी कर पाएंगे।
