India Gate, New Delhi

4.2
Standing astride the capital's grandest ceremonial road, India Gate pays tribute to the soldiers of the colonial Indian Army who lost their lives fighting for Britain in World War I. In the heart of the capital's main governmental district, the triumphal arch-style gate rises to a height of 42 m (138 ft) over the road below. Wander around the base of the gate to see the imposing stone structure up close, and be sure to look up at the cornices to see the inscriptions dedicated to more than 82,000 Indian soldiers who died fighting in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and elsewhere between 1914 and 1919. Don't miss seeing the small memorial beneath the gate's archway, a flame dedicated to the unknown soldier.

  • This was actually fantastic. You may opt for your family and friends. Great time to see that in winter season off Oct to walk. In summer season satisfy choose to use nights. This location is actually a lot enjoyable you will definitely possess a really good choices to consume and also a little bit buying at the same time altogether a fantastic location. Many thanks for reviewing my evaluation simply like if you discovered that valuable.
  • One of the best places to visit with family in Delhi. Walking distance from central secretariat metro station. The well maintained green lawn with big trees at it's periphery makes it a suitable place to spend a relaxing day. The boating facility near to the metro station is good for couples and kids even though it is not so well maintained still people enjoy boating in evening. The INDIA GATE itself looks beautiful after sunset because of colorful lights. For kids different battery ride options are there and also different toy buying options are there but these costs high.
  • You can reach here through Khan Market metro station on violet line. Parking is paid Best time to Visit is in the evening. Entry is free. Very lively and safe place...do not visit alone....visit in the group...specially with your family. Kids will definitely enjoy this place. There is a big open ground surrounding the India Gate...where you can have a picnic sort of thing. Enjoying with friends at India Gate is so far my one of the best experiences in New Delhi. This place is very good and and source of attraction...
  • This very nice place. My favourite on place in Delhi. Any mood I go there and get relief. The nearest metro station is CENTRAL SECRETARIAT - at walking distance (approx. 1 km). The best time to visit is in the evening with your family and friends. Parking is free - ample space. You will get water, ice cream sellers so don't worry about getting dehydrated. Overall a cool historical place to visit.
  • It was great. You can go with your friends and family and have a good time. Good time to visit it in winter from October to march. In summer please prefer to go in evenings. This place is so much fun you will have a good options to eat and a bit shopping as well all in all a great place. Worth a visit. Thanks for reading my review please like if you found it helpful.
