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.

  • Beautiful Arch of triumph, but it has quickly made the turn. I had the chance to see a ceremony, commemorative or military. It was not bad. Too many newsboys autour.

  • Absolutely beautiful place. Fills one's heart with patriotism as soon as one sees this great structure. Also a great place to spend few hours just sitting there. Beautiful to look at in late evening and at night with all the light work there. Great place for couples to eat an ice cream there and just roam around at night. Also great for children because of the Children's park besides this structure. A must visit place of Delhi.
