Go towards the late afternoon so it's cooler and less crowed. Interesting to walk around but doesn't need much time to see.

At India Gate everyone is taking pictures of everything and if you aren't Indian that will include you. There are so many people and all of them want pictures with or of you. If you have little patience or are not comfortable with this then just drive by, do not visit.

This war memorial can get crowded with locals & tourists. Quite a popular spot for picnics & a carnival like atmosphere at night. There is always someone trying to sell you something. Plenty of information on the web on this memorial. Its a good stop to appreciate the architecture up close & snap a family photo.

Been there several times. Its nice to visit there, and enjoy the evening buying roadside snacks or just lie on the grass, to enjoy the evening.

In central New Delhi, not far from "Connaught Place", you'll find awesome "India Gate"! Inaugurated in 1931 and evoking the same style of triumphal arches (as Rome, Paris, Mumbai etc.), this 42-metre tall red sandstone monument honors the memories and braveries of Indian soldiers killed during the First World War. Beneath the arch rests the "Tomb of the Unknown Soldier"... More

The war memorial was built in honor of soldiers killed during the First World War. Below the gate is a flame called 'Amar Jyoti Jawan' which wasbuilt to commemorate the sacrifice of soldiers during the Bangladesh Liberation War of 1971. A must visit place

The architecture of this monument gives the impression of European culture. We see similar gates all over the European countries. This is a war memorial. We went near the walls and saw names of soldiers engraved on its walls.
