India Gate is one of the few spacious hangout places in Central Delhi. Ample of park space and food vendors make it a good place for a lazy chat with friends or picnic with family.

INDIA GATE certainly brings back the memories of those 82000 India soldiers who fought in the British army from 1914-1921 and sacrificed their life in War. It's truly a Monument of DEDICATION to those SOULS!!

Beware of people selling... More
