It feels a proud moment when you visit India Gate and the Amar Jawan Jyoti. Think of the thousand names engraved on the structure and how they served the army.

This is a gate constructed in the memory of all those who laid their lives for the country. It has got a flame burning round the clock and all the days of a year. There are good manicured gardens around. This space is in the heart of the city.
