Rashtrapati Bhavan

Home to the President of the world’s largest democracy, Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi stands as a symbol of national strength. The nation’s most important democratic functions like the swearing-in ceremony of its elected leaders are carried out in these very grounds.

The Rashtrapati Bhavan has been witness to honour giving ceremonies of the country’s bravehearts and achievers, signing of historic pacts between India and other nations, of India’s independence and republic day ceremonies, and the hosting of many world leaders.

The Rashtrapati Bhavan is a true architectural masterpiece in its own right. The magnificent building spreads across 320 acres, including the splendid ‘Mughal Garden’ and the Rashtrapati Bhavan Museum. The design of the Rashtrapati Bhavan mainly imparts the Mughal architectural styles blended with classical and grand European signatures, credited to the British architects- Edwin Lutyen and Hebert Baker.

The building is also diversified with a number of other typically Indian motifs such as ornate Elephant statues on the outer wall or the main gate of the building with the ‘Jaipur column’. All in all, it is quite a visual treat to behold!

The building is open to visitors by three different segments or tour circuits. The first circuit comprises of the Main building and the Central Lawn. The second circuit houses the Rashtrapati Bhavan Museum Complex. In the same circuit, you can get a tour of the Clock Tower, the Stables, and the Garages.

The third circuit has the magnificent Mughal Garden and other ancillary gardens of the Rashtrapati Bhavan. Tourists can request a trip of each of the circuits separately on the days assigned for each segment respectively for daytime visits from 9 AM to 4 PM. 

There is much to take in and marvel at around the complex-- the intricate craftsmanship of carved marble statues, the sprawling Mughal Gardens featuring masterful landscaping concepts, the Clock Tower, and a myriad of presidential mementos preserved inside the Museum. Upon exit, you can explore the premier surroundings of this important historical site, often called as the ‘Lutyens Delhi’.

Newly Added New Delhi Experience
27 October 2020
Being my first solo trip, I was too nervous prior to boarding the bus to Kasol. But man, what a trip. First of all, I encourage all the readers to try going solo at least once especially on the mountains. The experience was overwhelming. I met other people as well in my journey that came via thrillophilia that made my trip pretty interesting. I enjoyed every bit of it. Whether it was on road, at Kasol or the kheerganga trek, I enjoyed every moment. Since it is October, the weather dropped significantly at Kheerganga, which was surprisingly pleasant for me. The trek was pretty hard but my guide helped me reach the destination comfortably. He was a lot friendly too.. I enjoyed the food as well. The best part was the bonfire at kheerganga to loosen us a bit. To sum it up, each and every moment of my trip was something I'd relish for a long, long time and I just can't wait to plan my next trip again. Thanks Thrillophilia. Cheers!

Got the chance to meet some really friendly people on this trip and we had a nice time going all around Old Delhi with our friends. Cycling tour started early morning and we cycled to ghats of Yamuna river. We also indulge in boat ride and seen a church. At the end of the trip we had nice breakfast. It was very well organised tour. Our guide was very good and had awesome knowledge of the city.

I must say that it was an amazingly superb experience.. the Segway ride was too good and the guide was very polite and nice to us.. we thoroughly enjoyed each and every second of our ride.. I want to honestly thank Thrillophilia for being such a good platform for finding these adventures and rides!! Hats off to Thrillophilia.
"It was an amazing experience. The entire trip is a memorable experience. \nThe arrangements were made nicely. The guide was very helpful and fun to be with. \n Also the arrangements at the top exceeded my expectations. It was clean and comfortable and food was also good \n\nThe only problem i faced was the gap between travel buses and the trekking team. As my bus arrived late i had to rush to catch the team\n\nOverall i am very happy with the package"
Gurgaon has a lot of party hubs but this one stands out. With unlimited food, drinks, music, and dance, Smaash Cyberhub created a special place in my heart. Every New Year's party I spend somewhere near Gurgaon or Delhi. And this time also, I didn't find a better option than this. I took my friends to this place. Reasonable price for what they provided us. Great group of people having so much fun. Staff seemed very professional and lovely. Service was impeccable. I completely enjoyed it and recommending this place to those who love parties.
