Book Description
Governor General Lord Wellesley took up residency in the Government House, as it was then called, in 1803, even before the last of the artisans had vacated the mansion, such was his impatience to live in a home worthy of the ruler of the British empire in India. Twenty-three Governors General and later Viceroys lived in this house, until the capital shifted to delhi in 1912. The first Indian occupant was C. Rajagopalachari, the governor of Bengal, in 1947. And over the years, as the erstwhile City of Palaces metamorphosed into the City of Processions, Raj Bhavan remained its pristine self, regally removed from the hustle-bustle of the city and its people.
