The visuals also show huge fountain outside the building.

On top of the building sits the State Emblem of India, which PM Modi had unveiled last year after performing ceremonial prayers with other BJP leaders. The emblem is 33m from the ground level and it took over nine months to finish. The total weight of the structure is 16,000kg, including the 9,500kg emblem.

Barricades have been put in place across the Parliament Road and around the new structure.

The interiors of the new Parliament are said to display art installations curated from across the country in an attempt to capture India’s diversity.

Along with this, six ceremonial entrances and public access ways – as well as the galleries of the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha – will showcase these installations, said officials. Animals revered in various parts of the country — including the Garud (eagle), Gaj (elephant), Ashva (horse), and Maggar (crocodile) -- will be featured in these installations.

The PM laid the foundation stone of the new Parliament building in 2020. In September 2021, he visited the site of the new complex and interacted with the workers present there.
