India Gate, New Delhi

4.2
Standing astride the capital's grandest ceremonial road, India Gate pays tribute to the soldiers of the colonial Indian Army who lost their lives fighting for Britain in World War I. In the heart of the capital's main governmental district, the triumphal arch-style gate rises to a height of 42 m (138 ft) over the road below. Wander around the base of the gate to see the imposing stone structure up close, and be sure to look up at the cornices to see the inscriptions dedicated to more than 82,000 Indian soldiers who died fighting in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and elsewhere between 1914 and 1919. Don't miss seeing the small memorial beneath the gate's archway, a flame dedicated to the unknown soldier.

  • I visited India gate many times and I love visiting that place. It’s just so pretty and the ambience of the place is so good. There are a lot of eateries and it’s the best picnic spot for everyone. Very safe place. Explore the India gate. See the beauty and feel the positive vibes of that place.
  • It's an awesome place to visit from evening 4 to 11 pm. It's good to reach by 4pm. Activities keep happening. News channels arrange talk shows. Maintenance is good. Lot of variety in snacks. Tourism department isn't doing good in maintenance and providing infra. The biggest problem is the traffic around the place. Traffic should be diverted. This is the pride of the country. So, the maintenance of path ways, the cleanliness, the discipline and the composure should be cultivated by governance of the place. Toilets are ugly. Anyone can walk over any bushes and spoil the place.
  • Excellent place, National War Museum is very nice. Dedicated to the soldiers who sacrificed their lives fighting for the nation. It gives us a glimpse of what our soldiers have achieved and with great bravery and valor they have gained victories in many battles in the history.
  • Undoubtedly the most visited monument in Delhi. India Gate has seen it all, the parade, the marches, the gatherings and the diverse cultured people of this great nation. This place brings out the patriotic inside you. Wonderful ambience. A bit far from Metro stations, but autos will get you there.
  • Best timing is at evening. Best part is when sun sets and it appears in between the India Gate. Sideways fountains are very interested. Great place for picnic in summers. Great street food. Chat with the guards. They'll fill your heart with proud and respect towards your nation.
