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.
And how can we forget the capital of INDIA having the best monument and maximum tourism to be there. THE INDIA GATE, NEW DELHI.India gate is without a doubt the first monument that comes to mind when we cogitate about Delhi. In my opinion, it is the biggest epitome of Delhi Tourism. It was initially known as the All India War Memorial as it incurs the memoir of thousands of Indian Soldiers who died in the First World War. Sir Edwin Lutyens designed this magnificent monument and the construction was completed in 1931. An undying flame known as ‘Amar Jawan Jyoti’ is positioned underneath the arch of this edifice. This flame reveres the martyrs.
