Raj Bhawan Nainital

Raj Bhawan

The Governor House of Nainital is named as the Raj Bhawan which is a symbol of British heritage in Nainital. This British era building is now the Governor residence of Uttarakhand which once used to be the summer residence of British Governors.

The Raj Bhawan has strategically been built around the exceptional landscape and is spread across a vast area of 205 acres with a Golf Course which is spread in 45 acres of land. There is a swimming pool and a garden as well within the premises of the castle. This Scottish-look castle was built in the pre-independence era in the year 1897 and took two years to complete. The architecture of the castle is Gothic and is built on European pattern. The name Raj Bhawan was given to it post-independence.

The Raj Bhawan is a two-storeyed building with 113 rooms which were used by Britishers during summers. Mostly the British VIPs and guests stayed at the Raj Bhawan during their visit to Nainital.

Post-independence, Sarojini Naidu was the first Governor of Uttar Pradesh (now comes under the state of Uttarakhand) to reside in this historic monument. Lush green gardens, Deodar and Oak trees, increase the beauty of this place and attract a lot of tourists
