The gate was a memorial raised in honour of the Indian Soldiers martyred during the Afghan war but now it honours and is a memorial to all soldiers irrespective of the war. It was closed off when we visited so we did not get to appreciate the whole experience and the area surrounding it but good to see.

I visited India Gate with a group of fellow journalists way back in 2001. We had actually asked to be taken to the Taj but the plans didn't work out. So we settled for India Gate as part of our "after class" sight seeing tour. As we discovered the best time to visit India Gate is in the evening, when... More

Didn't spend too long here, there was some sort of presidential visit so the grounds were more policed and segregated than normal. The gate itself is impressive in both its size and elegance. Unfortunately the grounds immediately around it had a little too much pooled, putrid water and rubbish/detritus. Coming directly from the immaculate gardens of the Lotus Temple, this... More

Went there numerous times.it is close to the new Delhi line station.best to take some nourishment. There is no shops close-by the India door. Anyhow there is a considerable measure for the photograph opportunity. This was sun situated time and we had the capacity catch some marvellous shots of the buzzing movement at the India gate. The watchmen at the... More

India Gate commemorates the brave Indian soldiers who lost their lives during the World War I. Amar Jawan Jyoti is also a part of the India Gate and was added after India got its independence. The Amar Jawan Jyoti burns day and night under the arch to remind us of soldiers who sacrificed their lives in the Indo-Pakistan War of... More

India Gate is an Icon of India and that of Delhi as well. One should know that it is a war memorial to the martyrs. It is at the center of the Lutyens Delhi, which is the cleanest and well designed part of Delhi. Illuminated in the evening, it stands at one end of the Rajpath which has the Rastrapati... More
