Must visit for selfies

what a specular view.. you must visit at least once when you are in delhi. your driver can just take this road to give you the feel of Vvip while you are driving to this road. huge rashtrapati Bhawan is just memorising.. if you get a chance to visit inside that really good. you can visit the museum, check for the timings otherwise permission required to visit inside. on days like Independence Day and all you can see beautiful lightening..

Glimpse is what you get without booking

The cab driver stopped only for a couple of minutes for us to have a glimpse of Rashtrapati bhavan from a distance. Beyond that there were barricades kept to prevent people from crossing
