North Block, Raisina Hill



This is the North Block, which houses the Ministry of Finance and the Home Ministry. It sits pretty on the right of the Rashtrapati Bhawan, the President's office, on the Raisina Hill. Infested by monkeys and I am not referring to politicians, this beautiful building built by the Britishers as the seat of power, continues to house the government after more than 60 years of India's independence.

I remember all the moneys in Delhi! They were good at appearing out of nowhere as soon as there was any food in sight. That's one imposing building!

This Raisina Hill is one of the most beautiful place in Delhi, every building designed by them itself becomes a scenic Landmark in Delhi.
Britishers did some good and appreciable work in their regime period, this is the proof. thank you for shearing your post.
