#21 of 1,012 in Things to do in New Delhi
At Rajpath, see how a ceremonial boulevard became one of the most historic roads in India. If you start your walk from the western side, observe the presidential palace nearby situated on the Raisina Hill. As you head eastward, notice the vast lawns, canals, and rows of trees which decorate the avenue along its entire length. As you reach the end of the king's road, the India Gate--a triumph arch and war memorial--stands tall in the middle of Children's Park next to the national stadium. Many visitors like to attend the Republic Day parade here, which proudly showcases India's defense capability and cultural and social heritage.
