Explore one of the popular monuments of India - India Gate
The India Gate (official name Delhi Memorial, originally called All-India War Memorial) is a historic and majestic monument in New Delhi located at the eastern end of the Rajpath (formerly called the Kingsway). Standing about 42 meters in height, it is a war memorial that pays a tribute to 70,000 soldiers of the British Indian soldiers who died in wars between 1914 and 1919 in the First World War and their names are inscribed on the walls of the monument. Designed by the famous architect Edwin Lutyens, the India Gate evokes the architectural style of the iconic triumphal arches such as the Arch of Constantine, in Rome, and is often compared to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, and the Gateway of India in Mumbai. As one of the largest war memorials in India, the India Gate area is associated with the Republic Day Parade. The gate is a common tourist site in Delhi, easily accessible to everyone without any cost and also a great place to learn about India's history with pleasant walks around.
