Prakash Vir Shastri Avenue


Prakash Vir Shastri Avenue

Prakash Vir Shastri Avenue is an urban street road in New Delhi, known for spanning the majority of the city and classically housing the city Members of Parliament for the state of Uttar Pradesh. The avenue also contains Gate 35, which serves as the main entrance to Rashtrapati Bhavan, the palatial home of the President of India. [] The road leads from Rashtrapati Bhavan to Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, a 937 bed Central Government hospital located in urban New Delhi that caters mainly to Indian politicians and bureaucrats.

The avenue was renamed from "North Avenue" in November 2002 in honor of the Member of Parliament of its namesake, who lived here during his tenure as a member of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.
