Rajpath, New Delhi
(4.6/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
At Rajpath, see how a ceremonial boulevard became one of the most historic roads in India. If you start your walk from the western side, observe the presidential palace nearby situated on the Raisina Hill. As you head eastward, notice the vast lawns, canals, and rows of trees which decorate the avenue along its entire length. As you reach the end of the king's road, the India Gate--a triumph arch and war memorial--stands tall in the middle of Children's Park next to the national stadium. Many visitors like to attend the Republic Day parade here, which proudly showcases India's defense capability and cultural and social heritage. Use our New Delhi family vacation planner to visit Rajpath on your trip to New Delhi, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • A stunning area and setting but looking a little tired, please spend a little mohey making this look even more impressive. The lakes particularly need some money spent. Still very well worth seeing, v...  more »
  • The Rajpath is beautiful path which is spotlessly clean, extends for 3-4 kms, has heavy security, with India Gate at one end. There are nice lawns along the way. 
  • It's a beautiful place with government buildings all around. If you turn around, you will see a massive road which leads to the India Gate. At night, it lights up and is a stunning sight.
