The Nehru Memorial Museum, New Delhi - 20

This elegant colonial building was once the official residence of the British commander-in-chief of the Indian army and is a memorial to Jawaharlal Nehru. Nehru was India’s first prime minister who lived in this building for sixteen years. His life is depicted using rare photographs form his family album. Memorabilia and personal possessions for Nehru are also displayed here.

Teen Murti Bhawan, is the straggling prime ministerial residence of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. This building was born-again into a museum after his death. The museum accordingly goes around the life and works of Nehru, especially those objects coming to the freedom battle. A collection of photographs and newspapers also help in cheering the agitating events that led to the birth of the Indian Republic. Yeah! One of the great place of New Delhi that one can must visit.
