Went there for 10 minutes. I think it's better to go in the afternoon when there's lots of people and good vibe.

Important that one should not forget those that gave their lives for others. Every city has a place like this and it's important to go there. It was very busy but in a nice garden and location.

Myself being a local, India Gate is the most visited place in my life span. Whatever is the occasion, we have been a frequent to India Gate. Although anytime is a good time to visit this place, one can also visit after midnight to chill-out & enjoy the open skies.

Wonderful tribute to the armed forces who fought and a great piece to mark the city center. Included an eternal flame and the flags of the various branches of military.

Standing tall at the end of a mile long Broad Avenue with beautiful well manicured lawns on either side, this structure inspires awe in the beholder. A monument built in memory of every Indian soldier who sacrificed his life during the second world war. Each name is inscribed on the building. A constant fire is burnt in their memory below...

Beautiful place. A good place for photographs. But very busy on Sundays. The Amar Jyoti lights the dark shadows of the gate and manned by our very own soldiers makes it a beautiful sight.
