Surprised to hear that, but it's true. The reason behind this is also very interesting, so let us know about the inverted wings in the Parliament building.
The foundation of Parliament House was laid in 1921 If you look at any picture or video of the central hall of the Parliament building, you will notice that there are inverted fans. Tell you that on February 21, 1921, the Duke of Knut laid the foundation of Parliament House. The design of the Parliament House was entrusted to the famous architects Sir Edwin Lutyens and Sir Herbert Baker It took 6 years to build the Parliament House. Once the building was ready, it was inaugurated by the then Governor General of India, Lord Irwin, on January 18, 1927. There are many features of the Parliament House, which make its structure quite different. One of these is the ceiling fan attached to the ground in its central hall.
Why are there inverted fans? According to experts, when the parliament building was built, its dome was made very high. The dome of the Central Hall is the center of the entire Parliament. In this case, when it came time to install the fan, the ceiling was very high, due to which it was becoming difficult to install the ceiling fan. Attempts were also made to install fans through long poles but the matter was not settled. After this, separate pillars were installed keeping in view the height of the ceiling of the Central Hall.They were then fitted with inverted fans, allowing air to reach the corners of the hall. This is how the fans have been fitted since then. No changes have been made to preserve the historicity of the Parliament House. That is why even today there are inverted fans.
