Standing astride the capital's grandest ceremonial road, India Gate pays tribute to the soldiers of the colonial Indian Army who lost their lives fighting for Britain in World War I. In the heart of the capital's main governmental district, the triumphal arch-style gate rises to a height of 42 m (138 ft) over the road below. Wander around the base of the gate to see the imposing stone structure up close, and be sure to look up at the cornices to see the inscriptions dedicated to more than 82,000 Indian soldiers who died fighting in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and elsewhere between 1914 and 1919. Don't miss seeing the small memorial beneath the gate's archway, a flame dedicated to the unknown soldier.

  • When I visited here then very crowded and loud It was wonderful time visiting India Gate, New Delhi with all my good friends. Not in a mood to return back from the place.. It was so nice to stay there whole day.. It's really a memorable day.. The place is so nice. Inside not allowed due to security reasons. But the view from outside is really amazing...
  • I had been visiting India 🇮🇳 Gate whenever I get time. Last night again I visited the India 🇮🇳 Gate on Occasion of Independence Day 2022. I always feel wow whenever I visit this place, last night whole Delhi was present there to click a pic and to celebrated our Independence Day ♥️♥️ I can’t review this place. This place is not made for reviews. It is the best and will be best always. Salute to all our soldiers ♥️
