Jawaharlal Nehru stayed in this house for about 16 years. The building was designed by Robert Tor Russell, the British architect in 1930s. It was meant to be the residence of the Commander-in-Chief of the British Indian Army.

Today, the house serves as a memorial. The building houses Nehru museum which has several articles and furnitures used by the former Prime Minister.
