|Please explain when to use 'at'.|
|Rajendar said: (Jan 2, 2011)|
|The above sentence is in past tense, so 'at' suits for it.|
|Ankit said: (May 18, 2011)|
|Also while talking about any place at is the perfect preposition.|

|Think commonly yaar. , what happens if a guy spent his total childhood in anand bhavan. Jawahalal nehru's child hood is a long period of time.
So we use at.
If it was a meeting or a congress of short span of time, then we can use in.
Ex:jawaharlal spent an hour in anand bhavan.
If wrong suggst me guys.

|I think "in" is used for the bigger place like big cities or name of the countries, where as "at" is used for the smaller like name of the building etc.|
|Suman Sahu said: (Sep 12, 2011)|
|At is the correct answer because it is used to mention address.|
|Dillip Kumar Kunar said: (Sep 14, 2011)|
|Yeah Mr.Chetan you are absolutely correct.|
|Naveen Goud said: (Nov 5, 2011)|
|Chetan is right|
|Neha said: (Dec 15, 2011)|
|@chetan, you are rite.|
|Arpit said: (Sep 18, 2013)|
|At is used for particular place. In is used for general picture. After one location other location must be followed by at.
Ex: I was in Delhi at welcome metro station.
For this question, at is used because at can refer to time span but in can't.

|I think "in" is used of country, cities or large places and at is for small places like building platform bus stop etc.|
|Pradeep said: (Feb 15, 2014)|
|In is used when the location is not specific like in Chennai, Bangalore.
At is used when location is specific like at home, at theater.
Ex: He stayed in Bangalore at his friends house.
|Emaad said: (Jul 8, 2014)|
|At is used for "Locations" and in is used for small thing like "in bedroom" "In kitchen" "At Behaar" "At Solapur" etc.|
|Javeed said: (Sep 8, 2014)|
|"AT" will be use when we are considering that as a point rather as a place or an area.
Our plane landed at Hyderabad while going to America.
|Farooq said: (Nov 17, 2014)|
|"at" we are using for place and time.|
|Rahul said: (Jul 16, 2015)|
|In is use for enclosed places.|
|Megha said: (Aug 23, 2015)|
|Prepositions of Place: at, on, and in.
We use at for specific addresses.
#Grammar English lives at 55 Boretz Road in Durham.
We use on to designate names of streets, avenues, etc.
#Her house is on Boretz Road.
And we use in for the names of land-areas (towns, counties, states, countries, and continents).
#She lives in Durham.
#Durham is in Windham County.
#Windham County is in Connecticut.

|@Ashok, you are absolutely correct.|
|Suvendu said: (Apr 20, 2017)|
|"Anand Bhawan" is a specific place, not a city or country, At is the correct one.|
|Issy said: (Jun 7, 2020)|
|"Anand Bhawan" is a place, therefore 'in' should be used; whether past or present tense contexts. Am I right?|
