The Gates of Rashtrapati Bhavan - August 24, 2014

The Gates of Rashtrapati Bhavan

These beautiful gates surround Rashtrapati Bhavan, the 340 room residence 
and offices of the President of India in New Delhi, India.  In addition to the 
main building, there are 320 acres in the Presidential Estate, which include the
famous Mughul Gardens, stables, residences for staff and bodyguards and
various offices.

It took eighteen years to complete construction and, in the year of its completion,
India gained its independence from Great Britain.

Pranab Murkherjee, the 13th president of India, has held the office since July, 2012.
Since that time, he has opened up more and more of Rashtrapati Bhavan to 
the people of India and other guests.

For more information on Rashtrapati Bhavan, refer to the links below.
