Imposing War memorial

This is a memorial to the Indian soldiers who laid their lives in the 1st world war. It is an imposing structure with a straight view of the Rashtrapati Bhawa in New Delhi.

Beautiful place to visit , and remember our Martys's. Avoid visiting at weekend or holidays, as it gets too crowdy, and try to visit at nigh, to see India gate glow, under lights.

The India Gate is mostly under police protection due to different protests that are active in the vicinity. Otherwise a good area for pics and lots of street food available in the surroundings. Nice place to chill out on weekends too

After having travelled around India, the India Gate does not make any impression on you. You can miss it in your trip to Delhi.

The India Gate itself is a very beautiful monument. Would recommend visiting around 6pm when the sun is setting. Do keep in mind the people all around trying to sell stuff.
