My family visited Delhi from USA. we went to see India gate in evening time. Place was not very well lit at night and foggy in december, made it unsafe. Though we saw some policeman telling people and hawkers to leave. Local footpath hawkers made this place very dirty, people eat and throw stuff right on the walk way.

Good for a short visit and perhaps a photo opportunity, but expect to be approached by vendors and beggars.

I was stunned by the sheer size of this beautifully maintained monument inscribed with the names of all of India's war dead. The eternal flane and the rifle and helmet under the arch are very moving and the sentry guard very impressive. A solemn place slightly spoilt my the myriad hawkers selling trashy toys.

A hitorical place where you connect to the a memmorial with the names of army men fought for Britishers.reminding you of Raj. Pretty crowded place so you need to take care of your sorroundings.

We went our first night in Delhi & it was an absolute zoo. On a map it looked as though we could walk between the India Gate and Parliament buildings, but that is MUCH farther than we'd thought.
