The whole area is full of people and the famous ice cream wallas - as now they all have the same brands and charge Rs. 5 extra for each thing....and now they have the usual vendors trying to sell you toys etc.... One can walk... More

In a moonlit night, when the crowd is not much, it is a very enjoyable area simply to gaze through all the structures. The architecture is very alluring in that time frame.

I loved the India Gate and surrounding areas. It kinda reminded me of the Arc De Triomphe. Great for pictures and just walking around the surrounding area. What history!

Any Delhites favourite weekend hangout zone. A cool view of the Rashtrapati Bhawan from the front. One can read the names of soldiers who died in the battle engraved on this memorabilia. Large open gardens to spend time with friends or family.

The tuk tuk driver had no problem getting to this famous landmark, we stopped for photos then we continued on to visit a museum. Like any famous landmark it's worth making a stop.

We visited India Gate at night with our lovely driver Hashim, and it was great. Many Delhi families were there enjoying time with the family as well as other tourists. It was fun at night and just glowed in the heart of Delhi. Delhi is not the greatest feeling city, so visiting here at night brought some heart back in... More
