It is a place having great historical importance. Must visit for students and kids. It helps in connecting with studies.

I walked to the place in the evening and walk down to it was rather impressive and reminds one of Arc de triumph though in this case one cannot actually enter the gate as it has a chain fence around it that is jealously guarded

Full open place and very much good surrounding. You can walk around the gate and can see scribed name of soldiers on it. You can see president house from here. Eat Gol Gappa here at very low price. Beware of pick pockets please.

I am generally interested in politics so it was interesting to be near the heart of Indian politics - government buildings and the President's palace surrounded the India Gate. The India Gate itself was very big. You only need to spend 30-60 minutes max in this area. It is quite busy and there is lots of traffic nearby so it's... More

Just a word of caution. If you think you want to try something called a Betal Leaf with Rose Petal Jelly please think twice. There are vendors at this monument that are selling this. I tried it at the urging of Indian friends but ended up with a mouth full of water blisters the next morning!

Best seen very early in the morning. By mid-morning & onwards too many locals hassling & trying to sell you junk which detracts from the visit & leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
