Your experience here will depend on what is happening when you visit. I had the pleasure of viewing a full flower Mandala one visit, and then nothing but the changing of the guards the next. It is a stop worth making if nothing other than to enjoy the hundreds of school children that are always there on one type of... More

It is the best place to roam around with the family in the evening. Children love playing there, youngsters enjoy with group, oldies sit in the grass and enjoy the fresh air

This is one place one should visit with family and children.The winters are awesome,but currently,(between April and September),it can be quite hot and humid and one must certainly avoid during mid day,though this is the best period during winters.Good and inexpensive balloons and toys are sold by vendors.Snacks like popcorn,chat,savories are also available but I would not recommend their consumption,because...

At the center of New Delhi stands the 42 m high India Gate. A memorial for the soldiers who lost their life during world war 1. A great place to visit.

My favourite time of visit is 7-8 and till 11 PM in summer time. Winter time is ideal for romantic couples. They can enjoy sunlight while... More

There is nothing much to do around India Gate but It's like a big party at night when half of the city would come here for some Ice Cream and psychedelic neon toys.
