My wife and I toured India by bus and plane. We both enjoyed the Taj Mahal, tiger preserve, temples, mosques, and forts. Gate 1 does a great job choosing the hotels in which we stayed. The only downside was the temperature. At least five days the temperature was at 105 degrees. So if you go, go earlier in the year.

The India Gate provided a good photo opportunity as lots of places were closed owing to the Indian bank holiday. Very populated but surrounded by lovely gardens.

For some reason it was really important that I visit India Gate. It didn't disappoint. The parks around India Gate and the Parliament Buildings were fantastic. Watching families picnic, and I saw a rare sighting of a garbage can!!! Someone actually threw garbage into it! I wish I had taken a picture.

if you visit india it is a must to see it. it´s average impressive but still it is the India Gate. You don´t need a guide- if you have a guide book it´s enough to get some information.

Delhi's version of Paris but in a better setting. When we went there it was a public holiday so the par was busy with local families enjoying themselves, food sellers etc. The gate is barriered with (friendly) guards butyou can get close enough to see it properly. The flame was burning and at sunset, the whole area was a great... More

The India Gate lies in the center of New Delhi and it is a symbol and remembrance of those soldiers who died during the world war.
