Nice place to visit. Takes 15 mins from Mall Road. It opens @ 11 am and has a 30 mins brief tour of the same. You can only access the front area which is just a small lobby.

Raj Bhawan or the Governor's Residence is an unusual place of interest in Nainital and was only opened to the public in 2014. Originally built to resemble an English/Scottish castle (certainly not Buckingham Palace by any stretch of the imagination), it was built without cement...More
