India Gate

This is the pride of Delhi that was earlier known as the All India War Memorial. This monument was built by the Lutyens in the memory of all the 90000 soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the welfare of their country during the World War I. The names of each of the soldiers are inscribed on the walls of the monument. The Amar Jawan Jyoti or the Eternal Flame burns here 24 hours as a symbol of remembrance of the brave warriors. On the opposite side of the monument is the very controversial canopy where was once placed the marble statue of Prince George which was later removed from here.

If you come straight from Rashtrapati Bhavan by the Rajpath, you can reach the India Gate. However, there are many entry gates and you should expect a huge rush specially on weekends. It had started raining and it was chaotic! There is nothing much to see. So, we decided to go back. Getting an auto from there might seem like a huge task that too on weekends. Even Ola/Uber can’t save you. You need to walk a little to come out of the premises and then check for autos. I would recommend local autos ( you need to bargain as they may ask way more fare than usual ) instead of Ola/Uber. We took a local auto to our hotel for 120 INR.

We headed towards India Gate @12.30pm, Sunday.It was full of school children and tourists basically jam pack. But this place has some emotion and it's all about the sacrifices of our brothers.Must visit place.

While waiting for an hour at Purana Quila for the show, we decided to visit India Gate as it was nearby. Availability of cheap autos is difficult at India Gate exit, so don't get dissappointed. The coloured lights of India Gate made it worth seeing for. The soldier paying respect deserves a huge respect from all of us. He stands there for I don't know how many hours and always at attention position. It's really difficult to stand for that long but only because he was trained by the Indian Army he could do it. One needs courage for that.

To feel the real vibes of the city of Delhi,head straight to Rajpath, India gate & neighborhood areas especially late evening/night. The ambiance is amazing with variety of options available from Rashtarpati Bhawan, Vijay Chowk, Rajapath & India Gate.

6. India Gate - Originally known as the All India War Memorial, it is an important landmark in Delhi and commemorates the 82,000 soldiers of the Indian Army who lost their lives while fighting for the British Indian Empire in World War I and the Third Anglo-Afghan War. Burning in a shrine under the arch of India Gate since 1971 is the aptly named Amar Jawan Jyoti (the flame of the immortal soldier) which marks the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The three flags of the Armed Forces of India can be seen here: the Indian Army, Indian Navy, and Indian Air Force.
