According to the order issued, Rashtrapati Bhavan will be open to the public from June 1, 2023, for six days a week from Tuesday to Sunday in seven-time slots between 9:30 am and 4:00 pm. However, if there is a government holiday on any day of the week, the Rashtrapati Bhavan will remain closed. The Rashtrapati Bhavan Museum Complex will also be open for visitors from Tuesday to Sunday (except government holidays). On the other hand, visitors to Rashtrapati Bhavan can watch the Change of Guard ceremony every Saturday from 8:00 am to 9:00 am in the forecourt of Rashtrapati Bhavan. However, if Saturday is a government holiday, it will also remain closed to the general public. Only a maximum of 30 people can go in each slot so, it is better to book tickets by checking the slots online before leaving. You can book your tickets from the official website of Rashtrapati Bhavan: .


People come from far and wide to see Rashtrapati Bhavan located in Delhi. Rashtrapati Bhavan is very popular with all the tourists whether from the country or abroad. No matter how expensive and big luxury buildings are and the people living in their multi-storied mansions, these big bungalows also look pale in comparison to the house of the first citizen of India i.e. the President.

When India became the world's largest democracy on 26 January 1950, Rashtrapati Bhavan got its place as a permanent institution. It was built by Edwin Lansier. It is said that Rashtrapati Bhavan was earlier the Viceroy's Palace. This 4-storey building has 340 rooms and it took about 17 years to build it. All these rooms are no less than a maze. Rashtrapati Bhavan has 18 stairs and about 74 verandahs. It has 9 tennis courts, a polo ground, golf grounds, and a very beautiful Mughal Garden. A cricket ground has also been built inside it. There is also a clock tower and Ashoka Hall inside the complex, which adds to its beauty. Apart from this, there are 37 fountains in Rashtrapati Bhavan. Looking at these figures, there can be no doubt that you will need a guide to visit Rashtrapati Bhavan.

The most attractive feature of Rashtrapati Bhavan is considered to be the Central Dome. It reminds us of the Stupa of Sanchi and it adorns the building like a crown about 55 feet above the building.

Built-in Lutyens Bungalow Zone, this building is spread over 350 acres. Sir Lutyens had conceptualized the 'H' shaped building. If we talk about the cost, then it is believed that at that time an estimated cost of about 14 million rupees was incurred in making it. If its value is estimated according to today, then it will be around 2.65 billion. Almost all the land in Lutyens Bungalow Zone comes under the Central Government, so it is difficult to estimate the exact figure of its cost. About 29000 employees were employed in the construction of Rashtrapati Bhavan, who built in 17 years. About 700 billion bricks have been used to build this amazing piece of architecture.
