This monument is very well kept, clean and is blocks away from Presidents House. You may appreciate the greatness of India and its people. All the common people are very kind and helpful with tourist and foreigners.

Visited India gate in the evening it is a large park which is nice to stroll around once the heat of the day has cooled. The memorial is a good photo opportunity.

i understand the need for touts and street sellers in india, its a way of life.. but when you can get 5 seconds to embrace yourself around the gate, then you have to think of the actual need why your there. its a lovely monument, not my first visit here, but the touts are so persistent, and theres even more...

This majestic monument is in respect of the Indian people dying in world war 1, and is located in a nice area in Delhi. Best time to visit would be sunset and evening, as the monument is light up in a beautiful way when it gets darker.

The hordes of touts tainted my experience a little but it was still a gloriously sunny day and the Gate is a really impressive structure. A photographer's delight!

The details and how they got to do each name on the gate and how there are the guards standing at the gate that no one can damage it, and there is one guard that is willing to answer any questions that one has about the gate.

It is a very good area to walk and see a few monuments but India Gate is just a normal sightseeing monument, not overwhelming or breathtaking but nonetheless is beautiful

Its just a monument in the middle of no were. The walk there was better. The area has not shade, and lots of people trying to take your picture making it difficult to check out the area. If you are in Delhi and have time to kill do drop by. Don't go out of your way
