There's not a lot to say about this place. It's big and deserves a visit. I would not suggest you try to walk to it from the subway station, particularly if it's hot. Make use of the local tuktuk's and let them take the strain. Interesting to see once you work your way past all of the popcorn sellers and... More

An architectural monument, but really more of a drive by than a destination in its own right. Unfortunately being close to Indian independence day we were unable to access due to heightened security measures.

During the day, India gate is similar to many other large memorials around the world, but at night the road between the gate and the presidents house comes alive with mobile ice cream carts and it appears everyone stops here for an ice cream on the way home

It is not that great as a monument. The water bodies around are stinking. People are littering around the monument and spending more time eating and taking pictures around the structure vs paying tributes all the warriors. Large parks around the monument are filled with homeless people.

It is an experience worth having. Walk down India gate from one end all the way upto the Rashtrapati Bahawan ( the presidents residence ) The road is known as Rajpath ( the king's path ) Choose a cool evening to do this. Or bundle yourselves and do it on a December evening

Traffic is for a surprise cor ordinated at here. We finally did the walk through the rajpath to India Gate and like others... More

When i crossed the place in the morning, there was not much crowd around the area, perhaps owing to the summer heat but when we returned back by evening there was a decent strength of crowd at the place. Its a nice view for sure. India gate has a long road in front which ends with the presidential palace at... More

Yeah, India Gate always reminds of family picnic. Get a mat, pack sandwiches/parathas and gather family friend for a evening of togetherness.

really it was so intersting a place to be during nights for picnic. Lovable, energysome, sporty, garden supports picnic and roaming time. Architecture of India gate and garden surrounding is simply amazin
