Two old photo postcards from 1927, show the newly completed twin Secretariat buildings in New Delhi. See earlier to this post, showing the Delhi Secretariat Buildings Under Construction. Spectacular view of the completed twin secretariat buildings with their beautiful domes. Designed by Herbert Baker, one of the two architects, designated to build the new capital of Delhi. The other was Edwin Lutyens. 

The first picture shows a panoramic view of the Twin Secretariats, and the Kingsway, now Rajpath the road that leads to the India Gate or the War Memorial Arch. A partial view of the Indian Parliament with its dome is visible at the left edge. A spectacular view of the forecourt of the Rashtrapati Bhavan (not in the picture). Apparently, a newly laid garden and the unmissable Jaipur Column at the center are also seen. Presently, the forecourt landscape has changed to lush green see this in Overview of Rashtrapati Bhavan. Click on the photo for better view.

Did you know- the War Memorial Arch or the India Gate on Rajpath was made in memory of the Indian soldiers who died in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East during WWI.
