it was almost end of the day when we visited the India Gate after Parliament building. There are so many tourists and locals at that time....the history was there and it was great that they preserve the place. It was one of the most amazing place we visited in New Delhi. Its worth a visit, a great memories!

It's a place where there is nothing good to see in terms of monoment. But you can spend your time watching Crowd, photographers, mehndiwalas, cholaywalas and many more. Just few kilometers from canaught place with ease of transport availability.

India gate was built by british rulers in memory of Indian soldiers who died in World war - 2. Many names are engraved on this structure. There are defence guards on duty round the clock. A torch keeps burning 24 hours This structure is very similar to many structures in European cities.It reflects the European architecture

Was unable to get close to see this monument. The haze did not help with viewing this, however it was huge and similar to gates in Berlin or Paris.
