Seri Perdana Complex - the residential complex of Malaysia's PM , Putrajaya

This is quite an old picture as the vegetation around the place seems 'new'.

This is a rare view because this is the protocol entrance of the building which is different from the visitor's entrance. Previously the residence of Tun Dr. Mahathir (ex-PM).......now of course PM Abdullah Badawi (I think he still hasn't moved in yet)

The Indian President (who has a largely ceremonial role) lives in the grand Rashtrapati Bhavan (Hindi for 'President's House') whose picture is posted above. It was built as the Viceroy's House by the British.

The Indian Prime Minister, who is the most powerful elected official of the country, lives in more modest accomodations - a four-bedroom bungalow with a decent lawn around it. There are few pictures of the exteriors of the house itself, but here are some interior pictures.

The official residence of the first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, was Trimurti Bhavan, whose picture is shown below. The next Prime Minister after him, was a man of great simplicity and moved to much more modest accomodations. The Prime Minister's bungalow is therefore a simple four-bedroom affair now.

Here is Trimurti Bhavan, which was originally built as the house for the Commander-in-Chief of the British Indian Army. It is now a memorial to the first Prime Minister of India - Jawaharlal Nehru and houses the Nehru Memorial Library.

Scotland: Bute House, Number 6 Charlotte Square. The Square is a Georgian Square in Edinburgh's New Town designed by Robert Adam. It is now the First Minister of Scotland's official residence, but was the grace-in-favour house of the Secretary of State for Scotland prior to devolution.

Government House of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia. It is the grandest residence in Australia, built in 1872-1876 in the mid-Victorian Italianate style and housing the largest ballroom in the world at the time (bigger than Buckingham Palace!).

The Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Australia has two official residences.

The Prime Minister's Lodge in Canberra
Built in 1926

Sorry, I couldn't find a good pic.

The second is Kirribilli House, a waterfront property on Sydney Harbour, opposite Circular Quay. Built in 1855


Check out the view!!!!!


The Governor-General of the Commonwealth also has two official residences.

Yarralumla, built in 1927.



Also, Admiralty House, built in the early 1800's, just next to Kirribilli House.
