10 Janpath is a house on Janpath, New Delhi. It is the official residence of Sonia Gandhi, the President of Indian National Congress party (INC).[1][2] The national headquarters of Indian National Congress is right behind it on 24, Akbar Road.[3]

It was the residence of India's second Prime Minister, Lal Bahadur Shastri (1964-1966) and where his body lay in state on 11 January 1966.[4] Today his biographical museum, Lal Bhadur Shastri Memorial is at 1, Moti Lal Nehru Place (formerly 10 Janpath), adjacent to the complex.[5][6]

History

The house was the residence of Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri who succeeded Jawaharlal Nehru in 1960s. Adjacent to the complex, facing the roundabout is Lal Bhadur Shastri Memorial at 1, Moti Lal Nehru Place. [7]

"10 Janpath" has become synonymous with Sonia Gandhi, in political parlance, especially when used in conjunction with its power tussle with 7 Race Course Road e.g. 10 Janpath V/s 7 Race Course Road or ‘10, Janpath more important than 7, Race Course’.[8][9][10]
