This was a great spot to stop and get a good photo and walk around. We went around 10am and there were very few people there. We drove by it around 5pm and it was crawling with people so I'd recommend going as early as possible

We went there on 10 dec 2016. There was a heavy crowd there since it was evening. Great place for family picnic. The monument itself is amazing. Some people throw their waste in the open making it a little dirty. Winter is the best time to visit it. We took our meals along and enjoyed the atmosphere of revelry there.... More

Police vehicles were requesting vendors to close down and go back. Worth... More

Like many other places, victory gates are monuments that should be a landmark. This one probably is for locals, as it is mostly visited by Indians. However, it's not really my cup of tea. Just pass on by, make your picture and go to visit the real Delhi, as it's an awesome town.

A vast and expansive site, including playing fields and beautifully manicured in most parts. It sits in th emiddle of busy Delhi with open arms to all and sundry. Here ypu may watch the cricket matches, picnic or just muse around with the very many tourists.the atmosphere is great especially if cooling off is needed after a hectic tour.
