Vijay Chowk is more famous for hosting the `Beating... More

The Vijay Chowk designed by Sir Edmund Lutyens symbolises everything that was both good and bad about English colonial rule over India. At one end of the Raj Path you find India Gate and the other end the embodiment of British imperialism in the monumental buildings designed for pomp, circumstance, ceremony, bureaucracy and a demonstration of power. There is not... More

Anyone who has seen Hindi movies at one time or the other must have seen the place. It is a place must be seen and winter is the right place to visit the area. If you are there during republic day events then it is a bonus to watch the beating the retreat.

While it is not really shaped like a square, and some may even consider it to be too big for a square, this is a lovely square to walk in. The square offers the two famous Secretariat buildings, fountains, lawns – and even some monkeys (in the park between one of the fountains and the south block building). It's a... More
