Nehru Memorial Museum and Library

To the south of the Rashtrapathi Bhavan in New Delhi stands a large mansion popularly known as Teen Murti Bhavan on Teen Murti Road. The famous Nehru Memorial Museum and Library are housed in it.

Originally the official residence of the British commander-in-chief of the Indian army, this colonial building became the residence of India's first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru.

After his death the Government of India dedicated this house to the memory of Jawaharlal Nehru and later converted it into a memorial museum and library.

The memorial has a fine collection of rare photographs from his family album, his personal letters and newspaper clippings providing detailed information on the National Freedom Movement of India. One can also see through large glass doors  Nehru's bedroom, study room and drawing room as he left them.

The Library here is an excellent research centre for Indian History. The library has the provision to give temporary membership to interested persons.
