India Gate, DelhiMarch 20, 2023
India Gate is a war memorial located in the heart of New Delhi, India. It was designed by British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens and was built in 1931 to commemorate the Indian soldiers who died in World War I and the Third Anglo-Afghan War.
The structure is a 42-meter-high archway made of sandstone and granite and is situated at the eastern end of Rajpath, a ceremonial boulevard in New Delhi. The names of more than 13,000 soldiers who died during the war are inscribed on the walls of the gate.
India Gate is also a popular picnic spot and a tourist attraction, especially in the evenings when it is illuminated. The lawns around the monument are often filled with people enjoying the pleasant weather, street food, and various entertainment activities. The gate is also surrounded by many important government buildings, such as the Rashtrapati Bhavan, the Parliament House, and the Prime Minister’s Office.
How to reach India Gate: The nearest Metro Station is the ” Central Secretariat” Metro Station (Yellow and Violet line). It is 1mile away from the India gate though so I would recommend taking a Moto Rickshaw if you don’t like to walk.
