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.

India Gate: The India Gate, (originally called the All India War Memorial), is a war memorial to 82,000 soldiers of the undivided Indian Army who died in the period 1914–21 in the First World War. 13,300 servicemen's names, including some soldiers and officers from the United Kingdom, are inscribed on the gate. The India Gate, even though a war memorial, evokes the architectural style of the triumphal arch like the Arch of Constantine, outside the Colosseum in Rome, and is often compared to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, and the Gateway of India in Mumbai. It was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens.In 1971, following the Bangladesh Liberation war, a small simple structure, consisting of a black marble plinth, with reversed rifle, capped by war helmet, bounded by four eternal flames, was built beneath the soaring Memorial Archway. This structure, called Amar Jawan Jyoti, or the Flame of the Immortal Soldier, since 1971 has served as India’s Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

A war memorial and pride of New delhi, this great structure stands on eastern end of Rajpath right in front of Rashtrapati Bhavan. Right under the India Gate is Amar Jawan Jyoti, a structure dedicated to Indian soldiers.
My next stop was India Gate, Rashtrapati Bhavan and Parliament. All of them are very close to each other. If you get to this place, you will get to see all the three must see places. I was at Delhi just about the time of Republic Day. Few days were still left for the grand parade that happens at India Gate. So, I witnessed people practicing for the parade early in the morning near India Gate and I was so thrilled to be seeing this. First of all, the entire atmosphere was so charged up and then I saw how much of security goes in to put up a grand show for our Republic Day.
What is traveling in Delhi without crossing India Gate! It's a british architecture with names of Martyrs engraved on it and the Amar Jyoti i.e the never fading light in memory of the dead soldiers. Situated in the ministry area and accessible on foot from the Central Secretariat Metro Station, it is a site free of cost and totally worth imbibing.
Right in the heart of the city stands an iconic symbol forty two feet high and also a memorial for the soldiers of World War I - The India Gate. Its majestic lighting during the night and the wonderful and colorful fountains surround it makes it an ideal tourist place to hang around it Delhi during the evening times.
The 42 m high India Gate, it commemorates the 70k Indian soldiers who lost their lives for the British Army during WW1.
India Gate is one of the most visited site when someone goes to Delhi. The ambience is just beautiful. At night, it glows which is very alluirng and pleasing to eyes. The garden here is very huge and is actually like a picnic spot where families along with the kids spend their sunday afternoons and evenings here. Various movies has the scenes of this site including No one killed Jessica.
India Gate is a majestic monument that commemorates the Indian Army martyrs in the World War I. I was part of the large crowd of Dilliwalas that had gathered below the triumphal arc like monument and the surrounding gardens. I spent an hour in the pleasant weather taking in the scenery and enjoying the nip in the air.
India Gate: This is another famous attraction in Delhi. It was built to honor the Indian martyrs of the World War I. It looks nice during night because of the floodlights. It always remains open.
We drive down the Rajpath, where the Republic Day parade happens every year, and reach the India Gate. This monument is a war memorial for the Indian soldiers who lost their lives fighting abroad. The sides of the monument are engraved with the names of these soldiers. Also, this place is a haven for the ice-cream wallahs who have placed themselves exactly where sweaty and “fed-up-of-the-heat” tourists can take a cool break.
