Raj Bhawan, Nainital Overview

Home to the popular golf course, the Governor's House is a Victorian Gothic edifice resembling the Castle of Scotland very closely and consisting of two stories of buildings with 113 rooms, garden, swimming pool and of course, the golf course. The second raj Bhawan in Uttarakhand, it was built in 1899 by designer F.W. Steven as the summer residence of the Governor of North East Province. The Governor's House now serves as the residence of the Governor of Uttarakhand.

A guided tour is available to explore the Raj Bhawan. Consisting of 113 rooms, it is a treat to explore the stunning edifice which is believed to be a copy of the Birmingham Palace. However, all rooms are not accessible to the public since the Governor still resides here. Some parts of the hugely popular Bollywood movie "Koi Mil Gaya" was shot at Governor's House.
