About the Event

Flagstaff House, the residence of Commander-in-Chief of British Army of India, which was later converted to the residence of first Prime Minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. The building was designed by Robert Tor Russell, the architect who also designed Connaught Place and Eastern & Western court of Janpath. The building was later renamed as Teen Murti House. This name was derived from the 3 statues outside this palatial structure, which were designed by British sculptor, Leonard Jennings. It contains the statues of lancers from Jodhpur, Hyderabad and Mysore States who served during the World War I under British India Army in present day Gaza Strip, Israel, Palestine.

Nehru Memorial
The building was later converted to a museum, which contains gifts received by Pt. Nehru from all across the globe. The memorial also has rooms of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and Pt. Nehru, along with the recreated External Affairs Ministry Room. A small theatre takes you to the memorable night of 14th August 1947, when Pt. Nehru gave that historic speech.

Kushk Mahal
Kushk Mahal is an old hunting lodge by Feroz Shah Tughlaq. Thankfully, the British architect decided to not to destroy it, and include it within the premise. It is on a raised platform, accessible through a long flight of stairs.
