About Rashtrapati Bhavan, Delhi

The Rashtrapati Bhavan houses the first citizen of the country, the President of India. Also known as the President House, Rashtrapati Bhavan is the perfect blend of the good old charm and modern zing. Being the home to the President of the country, Rashtrapati Bhavan truly stands for country’s secular character, its democratic traditions and the overall strength.

Besides being a building of national importance, India’s Rashtrapati Bhavan is an exemplary creation of architecture. This H-shaped building was conceptualised by Sir Edwin Lutyens. However, Herbert Baker joined him for giving the architecture of the building a final shape.

The palatial building is spread across a 330 acre estate, where only 5 acre is the covered area. Formerly known as Viceroy’s House, the Presidential residence comprises of 340 rooms, that include, president’s official residence, offices, guest rooms and reception halls. The prestigious building also includes huge presidential gardens including the famous Mughal Garden, along with some large open spaces and residences of staff.

History of Rashtrapati Bhavan:

It was during the Delhi Durbar that happened in 1911, when it was decided that Delhi will replace Kolkata to be the new capital of the country. Subsequently, it was decided that a residence for British Viceroy will also be created in the city. The architects then started working on a plan for establishing a new city, which had to be built towards the south of the old city.

During that planning, they came up with the idea of giving an enormous position and size to Viceroy’s house. The British architects had acquired around 4000 acres of land to build this magnanimous structure, which was originally known as Viceroy’s House. Raisina and Malcha villages were relocated to acquire that humongous piece of land by some 300 families, under the Land & Acquisition Act.

The primary architectural responsibility of creating this amazing piece of craft was rested on British architect Sir Edwin Landseer Lutyens, who was one of the most important members of the city-planning process. Lutyens created a design that was classical, yet colourful and detailed, inspired by the Indian architecture.

Lutyens and Baker started working on the design together, where Baker was to design the two Secretariat Buildings, in front of the Viceroy’s House. However, Lutyens had proposed to build Viceroy’s House on top of the Raisina Hills, with the two Secretariat building placed slightly lower. This became a bone of contention amongst the two architects.

After the completion of the building, Lutyens had the argument that the front view of Viceroy’s house was obscured due to the high angle of the road. Lutyens tried convincing the authorities to make the desired change. He, however, could not succeed in his campaign.

Lutyens thought that a little lower road with retaining walls on both sides could enhance the look. He also believed that Baker was not focussing on making the building beautiful. Instead, according to him, Baker was more concerned for his money and pleasing the authorities.

History states that Lutyens travelled between India and England for about 20 years to build the Viceroy’s house in both the countries. Lutyens also had to struggle with Lord Hardinge to reduce the budget of the building while maintaining its grandeur. He did reduce the building from 13,000,000 cubic feet (370,000 m3) to 8,500,000 cubic feet (240,000 m3) because of the budget constraints. The building was finally ready in the year 1929.

When the first Governor General of India C Rajagopalachari, went to live in the palatial house, he used just a few rooms, which are now known as President’s family rooms. However, he converted the other rooms into guest rooms, which are used for the stay of state guests of the country. It was on 26th January 1950 that the building was named as Rashtrapati Bhavan, when Dr Rajendra Prasad became the first President of India.

Architecture of Rashtrapati Bhavan

India’s Rashtrapati Bhavan comprises of four floors and 340 rooms in total. The building covers the floor area of around 200,000 sq ft. The constructors of the building have used 1 billion bricks and 3,000,000 cu ft of stone with steel to construct this national pride of India.

The building was created during the time period of Edwardian Baroque. During his time, heavy classical motifs were used in the architecture to showcase imperial authority and power. One can witness a lot of such motifs in the President’s house in Delhi.

Lutyens, initially, was averse of the idea of incorporating local motifs in his design. He wanted the design to be more classical and European in style. However, after mutiny, there was stress that the building should be designed keeping in mind the local themes, making it more politically contextual. Left with little choice, Lutyens incorporated local Indo-Saracenic motifs in the design.

Rashtrapati Bhavan, home to the President of the world’s largest democracy, epitomizes India’s strength, its democratic traditions and secular character.

Rashtrapati Bhavan was the creation of architects of exceptional imagination and masterfulness, Sir Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker. It was Sir Lutyens who conceptualized the H shaped building, covering an area of 5 acres on a 330 acre estate. This mansion has a total of 340 rooms spread over four floors, 2.5 kilometres of corridors and 190 acres of garden area.

Painstaking efforts of thousands of labourers including masons, carpenters, artists, carvers, and cutters saw the completion of this masterwork in the year 1929. Originally built as the residence for the Viceroy of India, Viceroy's House as it was then called, has metamorphosed into today’s Rashtrapati Bhavan. From being a symbol of imperial domination and power, it is today emblematic of Indian democracy and its secular, plural and inclusive traditions. Former President of India, Shri R. Venkataraman has rightly said, “ Nature and man, rock and architecture, have rarely collaborated to so fine a purpose as in the fashioning of the magnificent Rashtrapati Bhavan.”

When constructed, it was called the Viceroy’s House. The name changed to Government House on August 15, 1947 when India became independent. Finally, its name was changed to Rashtrapati Bhavan during the term of President Dr. Rajendra Prasad.

The Rashtrapati Bhavan has served as a home to Viceroy Lord Irwin and subsequently to other Viceroys of India till Lord Mountbatten, the last British Viceroy and the first Governor-General of independent India in 1947. Lord Mountbatten administered the oath of Prime Minister to Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru under the Central Dome of Rashtrapati Bhavan in 1947. C. Rajagopalachari, the first Indian Governor-General also took oath under the Central Dome on June 21, 1948 and became the first Indian to reside at the Government House, as it was then called.

The grandeur of this majestic presidential palace, however, was humbled by the very modest gestures of Rajagopalachari. Finding the Viceroy’s room too royal to stay, he shifted to smaller rooms (now called the Family Wing of the Rashtrapati Bhavan) for his personal use. This has been followed by all subsequent residents of the Bhavan. The erstwhile Viceroy’s Rooms have been converted into the Guest Wing for stay of Heads of State and Government and their delegations. As the first president of India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad took Rashtrapati Bhavan as his abode in the year 1950 after assuming office.

Little known is the fact that Mahatma Gandhi, much before the political heads of independent India, was an early visitor to the newly constructed Viceroy’s House. The Viceroy had invited him for a meeting which was met with dissent by Winston Churchill. Nevertheless, Mahatma Gandhi carried with him salt to add to his tea as a mark of protest against the British Salt tax. The series of meetings between Mahatma Gandhi and Lord Irwin finally culminated in the famous Gandhi Irwin pact that was signed on March 5, 1931.

Rashtrapati Bhavan has since independence hosted defence investiture ceremonies, swearing in of its leaders, honoured its bravehearts and achievers, has heard the speeches of world leaders, signed pacts and treaties with various countries, celebrated India’s Independence and Republic Day functions along with other festivals.

The journey through this work of art is divided into three circuits. Circuit 1 covers the Main Building and Central Lawn of Rashtrapati Bhavan including its premier rooms like the Ashok Hall, Durbar Hall, Banquet Hall, its Drawing Rooms and many more. Circuit 2 consists of the tour of the Rashtrapati Bhavan Museum Complex, while Circuit 3 promises the tour of Rashtrapati Bhavan’s famous gardens- Amrit Udyan, Herbal Garden, Musical Garden and Spiritual Garden.

RB-building.png

The Symbol of Indian Democracy and Unity

The stables.

The Rashtrapati Bhavan Museum Complex (RBMC) represents Indian democracy, freedom, and unity. This museum, which was inaugurated on July 25, 2014, is the culmination of an effort to preserve and exhibit the numerous gifts received by Indian presidents over the years. In addition to these gifted objects, the museum's collection contains arms, furniture, sculptures, textiles, photographs, archival materials, and more.

Previously, the gifts received by Indian Presidents since independence were kept in the Toshakhana, a space for storage on the premises of Rashtrapati Bhavan, and displayed in the gift galleries. For this purpose, heritage structures, The Stables and The Coach House were conserved and converted into a magnificent state-of-the-art museum. Gates of the Stables and the windows have horse-shoe patterns on them even now.

It is truly intriguing how each stall has been transformed into an enclave and decorated with gifts and works of art. There are 22 such enclaves on exhibit in the Phase I Museum.

Three corridors divide The Stables: the Left Corridor, the Long Hall, and the Right Corridor. While paintings and gifts are displayed on the Left and Right corridors, the Long corridor is divided into three sections: the War Scene Gallery, the Furniture Gallery, and the PBG Gallery. In addition to the corridors, the RBMC Stables contain a Coach House.

Savvino-storozhevsky monastery and museum.

Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery and Museum

Zvenigorod's most famous sight is the Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery, which was founded in 1398 by the monk Savva from the Troitse-Sergieva Lavra, at the invitation and with the support of Prince Yury Dmitrievich of Zvenigorod. Savva was later canonised as St Sabbas (Savva) of Storozhev. The monastery late flourished under the reign of Tsar Alexis, who chose the monastery as his family church and often went on pilgrimage there and made lots of donations to it. Most of the monastery’s buildings date from this time. The monastery is heavily fortified with thick walls and six towers, the most impressive of which is the Krasny Tower which also serves as the eastern entrance. The monastery was closed in 1918 and only reopened in 1995. In 1998 Patriarch Alexius II took part in a service to return the relics of St Sabbas to the monastery. Today the monastery has the status of a stauropegic monastery, which is second in status to a lavra. In addition to being a working monastery, it also holds the Zvenigorod Historical, Architectural and Art Museum.

Belfry and Neighbouring Churches

rashtrapati bhavan museum tour

Located near the main entrance is the monastery's belfry which is perhaps the calling card of the monastery due to its uniqueness. It was built in the 1650s and the St Sergius of Radonezh’s Church was opened on the middle tier in the mid-17th century, although it was originally dedicated to the Trinity. The belfry's 35-tonne Great Bladgovestny Bell fell in 1941 and was only restored and returned in 2003. Attached to the belfry is a large refectory and the Transfiguration Church, both of which were built on the orders of Tsar Alexis in the 1650s.

The Palace of Tsar Alexis was built in the 1650s and is now one of the best surviving examples of non-religious architecture of that era.
