Whilst the structure is definitely one to see up close and appreciate its place in history, I feel this has become a bit of a mobbing zone for any obvious tourists. With people painting henna and sticking bracelets on me even once I had stayed I wasn't interested, the assaults did not stop. It was hot, hectic and left quicker... More

We visited India Gate in April 2015. It was a trip down memory lane for me since I grew up within walking distance of India Gate in the 60s. The monument retains its majesty and beauty though one can only see it from a distance. The lawn surrounding the structure and along Rajpath were well maintained and there was a... More

This iconic landmark and the gardens around are great for a relaxing afternoon. If you are on a tight schedule, this place can be skipped.

This monument is spectacular and worth visiting. The issue is the location on a very busy roundabout with no stopping and no parking. Recommend walking to this sight. The issue us then the mile or so to the Government buildings.
