First of all, let’s start with the historic monument of India, the India Gate. Oh, do not get confused it with the Gateway of India. That is located in Mumbai, and they both are very different from each other. India Gate is the real beauty of the capital city. It was established in 1931 in memory of 86000 soldiers who died fighting the First World War. It is 42 mts high and regarded as the War Memorial of India. The monument is located on the eastern edge of the Rajpath. Take the Central Secretariat metro on the yellow line if you plan to come by metro. In Delhi, there are in total of 10 metros.


Unlike the Gateway of India, India Gate is huge, spacious, and has lush green lawns and an artificial lake. The environment here is so pleasant that you can come along and picnic with your loved ones. In the evening, you can see various street vendors offering tasty street delicacies to visitors. There is a wall made having names of several Indian and British soldiers carved in it. Architect Edwin Lutyens did the design of the India Gate. Amar Jyoti Jawan represents the immortality and sacrifice done by the soldiers and is the most patriotic place in Delhi. Both sides of the gate have carvings of the word India, and a quote is stated just below it, honoring the sacrifice.


India gate holds a major significance for the country apart from being a tourist spot. Indian President every year unfurls the national Flag on Republic Day and pays homage to the soldiers. Then a parade from India Gate to Rajpath is a sight to witness. The other tourist places to visit nearby are Rajpath, Qutub Minar, Rashtrapati Bhavan, and Parliament. A boating club also allows visitors to boat in the beautiful lake from 2 pm to 9 pm. Adjacent to it is the Children’s Park, where there is a wide array of kids’ activities to enjoy.
