India Gate-Salute To The Braves

#Monument in Delhi

The India Gate, located on the Rajpath, is a war memorial built in honour of all the Indian soldiers who died fighting numerous wars during World War 1. This structure is a major attraction in Delhi and is often featured in many tourism advertisements. This place is always packed with people, both tourists and locals. The India Gate is primarily built of red and yellow sandstones.

The architecture design has European influences to it, as it was designed by Edward Lutyens, a prominent war memorial designer. In the shadow of the India Gate lies the Amar Jawan Jyoti or the Flame of the Immortal soldier. It is an inverted rifle standing at right angles to a black marble platform. A soldier's helmet rests atop the butt of the rifle. This arrangement is surrounded by four urns, with endlessly burning flames, possible with the help of CNG. The India Gate is an important memorial of national importance and a major crowd puller.

"Not not much of shopping but meant to just hang out with your friends or enjoy especially during nights. People don't seem too bad here but we warned, since it's crowded you might want to keep check on your valuables. No problem for parking. You don't have to pay anything to see it. "

"Well, it is the most important icon of Delhi. It can be described as the centre of Delhi. Roads, which lead to the India Gate are blocked for tourists. Different peddlers, tourists, children make a scenic view. And in nighttime, energy is in full swing. But, as for the monument, there's not much to be seen."
