Rashtrapati Nilayam is one of the three official
retreats of the President of India.
It is located in a suburb called Bollarum on the outskirts of
the south Indian city, Secunderabad.
Because this residence is in a region far removed from the
national capital, New Delhi, it is held to be indicative of
the role that the President plays in unifying a diverse nation.
It has come to be known as President's Southern Sojourn.
It is occasionally used as a guest house for visiting dignitaries.
