India has always been known for her democratic ideals.
Perhaps the most important symbol of the democracy of
India is her parliament, which forms the basis for the
legal and administrative wings of the Indian constitution.
Thus, for most visitors to the Indian capital, the Indian
parliament is a must-see.
Located on Raisina Hill in New Delhi, the North and
South Blocks are part of the Secretariat Building, which
houses the following ministries:
· Ministry of Defence (MoD)
· Ministry of Finance (MoF)
· Ministry of External Affairs (MEA)
· Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA)
· Prime Minister's Office (PMO)
Designed by the celebrated British architect Herbert
Baker, the Secretariat Building at Delhi is a combination
of the Mughal, Rajput as well as British styles of architecture.
Adorned with a dome like structure that gives a unique
prominence to the building, the North and South Blocks
are important from an architectural point of view as
