Beautiful place and truly a heart of capital Delhi. So many things to watch here. Nearest metro station is Udhyog Bhawan, Khan Market etc.
Children's park also available nere exit gate.
A beautiful place to spend some quality time with family.
Please carry your water bottle and some eatable item, as here you will get only bhel puri or chips of double price or water bottle of double price.
Overall a must visit place in Delhi.
Avoid to go on weekends and prefer to go here on weekdays for a good experience.
Overall great experience.

A nice area with lots of other tourists and visitors. Have to go through quick security but didn’t take more than a couple of minutes. Easy to navigate around and walk.

The most frustrating part was probably all the vendors and photographers etc. Trying to get your attention. After saying no multiple times they were persistent, don’t let you fully enjoy the experience.

My tip is just to not say anything, as soon as you say no they keep pounding at you.

I only saw this impressive monument while driving past but could see how popular it was with the locals by the large crowds in the surrounding park. It has an impressive story - worth googling. I suspect a visit by a tourist wouldn't take up much time.

Closed to public when I was in ND, pity really.
Very aggressive hawkers at main gate, trying to take a photo for you, for a fee of course...Seen them take advantage of a simple looking Indian lad....tsk.
Quick photo and I'm on my way

Another not to miss Landmark in Delhi - a good photo spot.
Our driver dropped us little away as the parking area is on opposite side.
Go there when the temperature is low - as you can send more time to click pics.
You will be surrounded by photographers to take pics of you. Enquire the rates well in advance before taking pics.

Also the entry and exit routes are different, so tit took a longer time to exit

To visit this place you can choose any Transport options as it's in a VIP area - so metro, cab, bus own vehicle , auto etc

You will easily find parking here, not restaurant but ice cream and chips, soft drinks options are there, you will also find few tea seller there just in case you are tea lover.

This place is best for Walk, jogging, and Picknick,
Anytime is the best time to visit this place except summer afternoon time as it will be too hot.

We have boating options as well but that is only for specific time.

Enjoy your visit and please keep every place neat and clean !! Thanks

Its a must visit place if you come to Delhi. Its a Monument, Tall Arch Structure dedicated to the troops of undivided Indian Army who died during the First World War. It stands tall on the heart of the city. It gives a pictorius view with a Straight road (Rajpath) connecting it to the Presidents House (Rashtrapati Bhawan) and have beautiful lawns on both sides. In the Centre of the arch, there is a flame (Amar Jawan Jyoti) that continuously stays lighted 24 X 7.
Its a place to take a long walk, take pictures and sit on the laws (specially in the evening) and spend some good time.

Good morning friends. Greetings for the day. I did get a chance to see this historic Landmark with my relatives couple of days ago.

Didn't get a chance to see it from very close because we did reach there bit a late after 8 PM, after visiting the Bangla Shahib. And it was close after 7 or 8 PM because of security reasons thanks to Republic day arriving on 26 th of January. But still a memorable moment for me. Thanks for reading my review.

After travelling different northern states, I found delhi is one of the best one amongst them ( Though I didn't went deep in to the villages and outskirts of the city) . Its may be because Delhi is the capital and we do have great monuments over their. Must see places are there and you can easily cover those in one and half days . Only one thing to remember is that make a proper plane and arrange the best transportation.
