ABOUT India Gate
If you’re flying to Delhi, you can probably spot this architectural beauty, India Gate, through your flight’s window on a clear day, or when it is beautifully lit up during evenings. Originally called All India War Memorial, this is undoubtedly one of the most prominent landmarks in the capital city. The monument commemorates 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, the then Emperor of India stood under the now vacant canopy in the front side of the monument, but it was later moved 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 organize 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 26 January.

Located at the cross-roads of Lutyens’ Delhi, the monument is the nearest to Central Secretariat Metro Station (on the Yellow and Violet Lines). Take an auto from there to reach the place. There are also several local buses that ply towards India Gate, especially those that go towards Patiala House Court.

Parking is not allowed there (security reasons) so the best way of reaching is by rikshaw. On sundays this place is very crowded since people go there to spend the sunday with family and friends sitting on the lawns nearby, playing cricket or rowing boats at the small lakes. There are a lot of ice-creams and "chai" vendors around so u can enjoy an ice-cream in summer and a hot chai in winter.
