If you are thinking to spend a short vacation, then wander through the glorified building of Viceregal Lodge, which is well-maintained and organized with beautiful gardens and lawns. This building was constructed as the residence of the British Viceroy Lord Dufferin and was completed in 1888. It has a fringed and scalloped tower made with grey limestone and sandstone.
The entrance of the building opens to a grand staircase and gallery. The Viceregal lodge is also known as the “Rashtrapati Niwas” or President’s House, located on the observatory hills and surrounded by lush green gardens and lawn, encircled with aesthetically pleasing pine trees and rose plants. This gorgeous building also offers students to opt for higher studies.
Viceregal Lodge and Botanical Garden are situated at a mountain top and the architecture of the building is inspired by the English renaissance style that attracts many tourists every year. The interiors of the building are made with woodwork and Burma teak. Despite its architectural design, it excites the travellers to roam around the beautiful lawn that is ringed with pine trees and plants.
The Rashtrapati Niwas is now transformed into the Indian Institute of Advanced Study and students from all over the country come to this place for pursuing higher education. The enthralling and astonishing view from the hilltop is the main attraction point that counts for travelers to visit this place.
You can travel to Viceregal Lodge and Botanical Gardens without a guide as the site can be self-interpreted and you will be able to communicate with the locals easily. You can enjoy the positive experience of this place on your own.
