With the huge and spherical construction, the Parliament House consists - three semi-circular chambers (where all the Legislatures sit) and a Central Library. The Central Library is crowned by a 27.4 m high dome. This is very huge dome with the diameter of 173 m and covers 2.02 hectares area.

The edifice was designed by Herbert Baker, a well-known architect of early 19th century; however, the foundation stone was laid by the Duke of Connaught in the year 1921. Initially, the three semi-circular areas had been designed for the Chamber of Princes, the Council of State and the Legislative Assembly. But after the independence, all these structures transformed into the Lok Sabha (House of the People), Rajya Sabha (Upper House) and the library. The boundary walls have blocks of sandstone fixed in geometrical patterns that resembles the Mughal jalis.

In addition, the park area around the parliament is well maintained and has several varieties of flowering plants and show plants, which also attract people equally.
