Raj Bhawan, now the residence of the Governor,
was once the residence of the Governor-General of India. Based on an idea
of the then Governor-General, Marquis of Wellesley, the building was modeled
to resemble Lord Curzon's ancestral home - Kedleston Hall. It is situated
in a fine enclosure of 6 acres standing back of the Maidan. The throne
of Tipu Sultan is inside the building and the room where it is placed
is called the "Throne room". The splendid ballroom whose floor
is of polished teak is also worth seeing.
