Five days after being sworn-in, Narendra Modi on Friday moved to the Prime Minister's official residence at the Race Course Road.

Modi, who was staying temporarily at the nearby Gujarat Bhawan, went to the 5, Race Course Road this morning and a small pooja was performed there.

Most of his belongings have been shifted to the 5, Race Course Road-- a bungalow which he will occupy as residence instead of bungalow number 7, which has been the residence of his predecessors.

Manmohan Singh vacated the Race Course Road residence after Modi's swearing-in on May 26 but the new Prime Minister did not shift as it was being refurbished.

Modi will use the bungalow number 7, Race Course Road as his office.
