Teen Murti Bhavan

Rashi Gupta
I thought of spending a few hours at the Teen Murti Bhawan. Designed by Robert Tor Russel in a classical colonial style, as a part of Edwin Lutyen’s imperial capital, the Teen Murti Bhawan was built in 1929-30 as the official residence of the Commander-in-Chief of the British Indian Army. In August 1948, it became the official residence of the independent India’s first Prime Minister, Jawahar Lal Nehru. He lived here for sixteen years until his death in May 1964 after which it was converted into a museum and a library in order to perpetuate his legacy. It is known as Nehru Memorial Museum and Library. The campus also houses the Nehru Planetarium.
