About Raj Bhawan Governor House

With a boulevard of Deodar trees and gardens spread over 22 acres, Raj Bhawan Governor House, also called Raj Bhavan, was the summer residence of the governor of the United Provinces. Modelled after Buckingham Palace, it is now the official residence of the Uttrakhand Governor. One of the few Raj Bhavans in India open to the public, the front of the building replicates the shape of a British Crown and houses 113 rooms. Tourists are allowed to walk in the ground area only and not inside the building. There is also an 18-hole Golf Course at this attraction in Nainital where you can play by paying a nominal fee.

Historical Context: According to local folklore, the tunnel in the Governor House had served as the hideout of Sultana Daku, the Robin Hood of India, in bygone days. It was occupied by Sir Antony Mac Donnell in that year and was inhabited after him by Sir James La Touche, Sir John Hewett, Sir James Meston, Sir Harcourt Butler and Sir William Morris.
