We went our first night in Delhi & it was an absolute zoo. On a map it looked as though we could walk between the India Gate and Parliament buildings, but that is MUCH farther than we'd thought.

It is a war memorial. We saw many names engraved on the walls of this gate. We also saw a flame burning which was being guarded by defence personnel.

Fantastic and very impressively built structure. We went at night and there was a bustle of activity around the gate. It's beautiful illuminated. All the names of those who fought for freedom are carved into/around the arch. Also, provides great people watching.
