ABOUT India Gate
If you’re flying to Delhi, you can probably spot this architectural beauty through your flight’s window on a clear day, or when it is beautifully lit up during evenings. Originally known as the  All India War Memorial, this is undoubtedly one of the most prominent landmarks in the capital city. Commemorating the 90,000 soldiers of the British Indian Army who lost their lives in World War I and the Third Anglo-Afghan War. The structure is made of red and slightly pale sandstone and granite adding a level of magnificence to the structure.

Originally as a part of the structure, a statue of George V, Emperor of India stood under the now vacant canopy in the front side of the monument, but it was later removed to Coronation Park alongwith a number of other British Raj-era statues. After India's independence, India Gate became the site of the Indian Army's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, known as Amar Jawan Jyoti ("the flame of the immortal soldier"). 

The area has a water-stream, an erstwhile boating spot, and sprawling green lawns, ideal for a stroll in the morning or evening. It is also dotted abundantly with ice-cream vendors, hawkers and people who organise camel and elephant rides, making it a favourite spot for Delhiites to go picnicking. India Gate is also renowned for the grand Indian Republic Day Parade, hosted here every year on 26th January.

"Patriotic Gate"
reviewed on Jul 31 2014
India gate is a place where you visit thinking it will be fun like any other picnic spot, but once when u reach that place and see the army around and the relevance of the place, then you are filled with a feeling of patriotism. Otherwise its a nice place for photography a nice picnic spot, people come from far away places just to see this gate. The only drawback of this place is one cannot visit it in summers as it is not covered and its too hot in Delhi and during evening their is a lot of rush their, you cant have a peaceful time their. But all over itys a nice place to visit, at least once in a lifetime.
