Bonus Feature - The Change of the Presidential Guard Ceremony

Watch the ceremony seated within the majestic gates on the red graveled path that leads to the Jaipur column and the main entrance. From time immemorial, guards and sentries at palaces, forts and defence establishments change periodically to enable a fresh body of troops to take charge. In this ceremony, mainly the old and new guard consists of a troop from the president's body guard (PBG) and another platoon drawn from one of the numerous regiments of the Indian army. A huge military band is also present to provide accompaniment.
