Mandi House: The Cultural Hub of Delhi

“The Metro station?”, you might ask. But you might not have ever given a second thought as to how culturally rich this place is. Mandi House has evolved over the years into the hub where many sculptures and other forms of art have found shelter. Did you know that the name was coined from the bungalow of the King of Mandi that was located here? Mandi is a place in Himachal Pradesh. The King stayed in this house after New Delhi was declared the capital of India in 1911. The Mandi House has since been rebuilt as the Doordarshan Office.
