India Gate is almost in the middle of Delhi. If you are visiting the old Fort and the Red Fort, you are likely to be passing India Gate area and it makes sense to pass by and see this splendid monument.

It was nice to see a lot of locals gather in this area on the weekend. They seemed to be enjoying family and food. Great atmosphere.

The site of this memorial was brilliantly chosen, and Lutyens' design is a fitting tribute to the men of the (British) Indian Army - all volunteers - who died in the First World War and Third Afghan War. Most of those named have no known grave. It is also a fascinating roll-call of famous Regiments, many of which continue in... More

While Indians should rightly take pride in this their very important national monument they are being let down by the authorities who look after India Gate. When I visited the attraction in early March 2015, on the one hand I was impressed by the beauty of the monument but at the same time could not help noticing two blemishes. There... More

A great monument to see with names of the fallen soldiers etched into the gate and soldiers diligently guarding it in their splendid uniforms. There are lots of vendors around the gate and many families come here to picnic and enjoy the gardens - a lovely colourful atmosphere.

Every time I visit India Gate, the monumental beauty of it leaves me mesmerized. The whole place radiates a very positive energy. In the evening time it glows and is one of the best place to enjoy with friends.

Very famous attraction point and easy to go (Metro + tuk-tuk).... (like Arch of Triumph in Paris). 2nd times been there... the sunset/night scene is more attractive than the day time. It is a good place for photographer (suggest bring wide/fisheye lens to capture the magic hr moment!! Must go there if you go to New Delhi..1.5hr is enough!!

The majestic India Gate positioned on the main boulevard of Lutyan's Delhi makes one proud to be a citizen of India. Initially it was built as a memorial to over 70,000 World War I veterans, soldiers who died in the cause of humanity and civilization. If you look carefully you will see thousands of names etched on the monument, a... More
