Condé Nast Traveller India: Travel Tips, Holiday Ideas and Vacation Inspiration – July 17, 2017 at 08:07AM

As the #sun sets on Pranab Mukherjee’s presidency, 4,896 parliamentarians and legislative leaders vote today to elect our new #President. Will it be Ram Nath Kovind or Meira Kumar? We’ll know in a few days, but meanwhile, a few facts about #RashtrapatiBhavan, the stately, #elegant building that will be someone’s new #home next week. #Didyouknow that the entire estate, including offices, staff residences, stables for the horses and #gardens, is 320 acres? Completed in 1929, the residence, intended for the British Viceroy, features elements of #Edwardian #Baroque as well as #Mughal #design. Its central #dome was inspired by the Pantheon in #Rome as well as the Stupa in #Sanchi. There’s even a #museum on the premises, that was opened in 2014.
