Rashtrapati Bhawan

We are pleased to announce that the Rashtrapati Bhawan – the official residence of the President of India has agreed to host a tour and an evening reception on 8th September 2015 for CIDOC participants.

Influenced by Indian and Western schools of architecture, it was completed in 1929 under the gaze of British architect Edwin Landseer Lutyens. Home to the Viceroys of India under British rule the edifice has endured a tussle and transfer of power that has only added to its already magnificent architecture. Through guided tours of the Ashoka Hall, Durbar Hall and the Rashtrapati Bhawan Museum, participants will get to experience the rich cultural and political history of this building and the Indian nation.

To enable this visit it is requested that all participants, those who will be presenting and those who are only attending, kindly send us a photocopy of the first and last pages of their passports along with details of their current designation. We urge you to send these details to us latest by 30th of July 2015. Without these details you will not be permitted to avail the tour of Rashtrapati Bhawan.

Please note that the tour is scheduled for 3:00 PM, 8th September 2015.
