Brings out the patriotic feelings

Nice place to hangout in the evening and get some nice photographs. Its an iconic monument in India in memory of the soldiers who laid their lives fighting for the country.

We visited here on a Saturday with our small group of Australians. The park area was very busy with locals enjoying some leisure time. There were also quite a lot of Indian tourists in their beautiful saris which added to our photos. The Gate is always has a guard on duty. A few street sellers around but not bothersome.

Dont be a fool to visit the place during day, the place comes to life in night, just be there by 9:30 pm, post dinner, as if entire city comes to picnic every night. Street vendors, ice cream vendors on a paddled tricycle. And the monument in itself is picturesque at night but dont be too late cause authorities take... More

You have to see this if you are in Delhi. We visited during the day and there was not a whole lot going on but when we went back in the evening, seems like everyone comes out in the evening to stroll the lawns and picnic, eat street vendor food and just enjoy themselves. If you stay till it starts... More

India Gate, is a place every Indian has to experience. The peace and quite around only substantiates the sacrifices made by our armed forces to protect us from all the adversities. Proud to be an Indian. Jai Hind.

This war memorial is nice to visit once. There are lots of beggars and people selling random goods but it is worth the trip and hassle of the locals. The park and long wide street leading to the gate from the government buildings is also impressive.
