Make this part of your tour, an oasis which is surrounded by busy roads. The gate is huge standing proud as a monument to Indian courage. Walk around the park which is kept clean and tidy..a real joy in Delhi..!!

I went at night and can recommend this as an after dinner and before returning to the hotel type of activity. There's a pleasant vibe there - only downside were the photographers trying to sell you a picture every 5 minutes. Very impressive structure and you can really see the pride that Indians have in their country when you visit... More

Similar to the Arc de Triomphe- the India Gate is an impressive monument to the memory of India's military sacrifice and worth taking a few moments to stop and visit. It seems to be popular with the locals as every time we went by there were a number of locals relaxing in the grassy areas around the monument.

Large monument marking India's independance. Set in landscaped park surrounded by extremely busy road which can make it difficult to stop if driving.

Take a picture as you drive by. Don't stop not worth a seep rat trip. It is an impressive structure. You can't miss the word India inscribed on the top.

One of my favorite place I visit without fail anytime I land in Delhi. I generally catch up with my friends here during the night whatever the purpose of my visit is to Delhi. Great to walk post 11pm with ice candies in hand and friends around. Best night out in Delhi for peaceful walk.

The hole area was filled with locals and visitors when I was there. Obviously a much loved place by the local people. The waterways around the site were full of kids playing in thewater and the green spaces had lots of people having picnics. The gate itself is worth a visit although parking can be problematic.
