New Delhi Parliament House (Sansad Bhavan)

Sansad Marg , New Delhi, India

The Basics

With its impressive architecture featuring sandstone colonnades and surrounded by beautifully manicured gardens, the Parliament House is worth a visit on aesthetic value alone. However, if you have an interest in political history, you may want to drop into the Parliament Museum, which features interactive exhibits detailing the history and democratic heritage of modern India.

Many private and small-group tours of Delhi and of New Delhi stop at the building, and some provide time for you to go inside and explore the museum.

Amazing experience
What an amazing experience. Roj our driver was so accommodating and patient with us. Great driver and we felt very safe with him. All the tour guides were so informative and helpful. It was so worth the money. So convenient, safe and hassle free. I recommend doing this to see as much as possible if your not familiar with India. The owner even checked on us a couple times. Hotels were amazing!!

A New Parliament?

The Parliament House dates back to the 1920s, and there have been concerns in recent years about the structure’s safety as well as its ability to accommodate modern audiovisual technology. While it's unlikely that the current building will be demolished due to its heritage status alone, the Parliament of India may find a new home in the years to come.
