Parliment House Tour

 

Situated in Delhi, the Parliament house is one of the most incredible buildings of India, which houses the most dazzling clusters of architectural gems. Tourists who are on their Delhi tours perpetually pay a visit to this stunning building. The Parliament House shelters two houses, namely, the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha. Any bill, before becoming a law has to first take approval from both the houses.

The mind behind the building was Herbert Baker, who together with Lutyens was responsible for designing most of the British architecture in Delhi. However, you will be amazed to know that the Parliament was earlier called the Council house and also criticized for being Baker's piteous project. Parliament House is positioned in the northwest side of Vijay-Chowk, after Parliament Street finishes, next to the Secretariats.

Parliament House, also called Sansad Bhawan is a spherical structure carried by 144 pillars with a wide corridor. These indistinguishable pillars each estimated around 8.23m high. Further, Parliament House has a 27.4m elevated dome on top, which is motivated by the stupas. The entire area enclosed by the Parliament is about 2.02 hectares long and has a 170.69m diameter. The House contains 3 curved chambers, called the Chamber of Princes, the Council of State and last but not the least Legislative Assembly.

The members of the Parliament House include the Lok Sabha, the Rajya Sabha and the secretariats of both the houses. The entire area is protected with the high security and is enclosed by a decorative red sand stone wall with iron doors. The Central Hall is placed at the hub of the Parliament House and is enclosed by three exquisite Chambers as well as three beautiful well maintained courtyards with flourishing green lawns and fountains. Small passageways appearing from three central points on the perimeter of the hall join the Lok Sabha Chamber, the Rajya Sabha Chamber and the former Library Hall.

People who want to visit the place has to take permission by giving a written letter of introduction, in order to avail the official entry pass, whether there is session going on in the Parliament House of not. Well! One should not miss any chance to get a glimpse of this beautiful building. So, plan your next visit to India and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Parliament house.
