A Memorable visit. The Taj Hotel next door is the ideal place to go and enjoy a High Tea afterwards, which is exactly what we did.

Concur with earlier reviewer. Good for a couple of pictures. However, I think the best picture is taken from the road leaving the President's place (Rajpath) towards India Gate. Can frame your shot such that the canopy mounument is inside the arches of India gate. Numerous examples on Google images.

This is a lovely spot for a walk. It's peaceful, full of Indians enjoying themselves. You don't get bothered (well we didn't). There are loads of photo opportunities, and it's just nice to sit on a bench in the shade of a tree and watch life buzzing around.

It's easy to stop by and take a picture, but don't expect anything too momentous. It's just a memorial and then you'll keep on traveling to your actual destination.
