India Gate

Every capital of a country has a universal emblem that stands for its spirit. India Gate is for Delhi and for most of the visitors, tours and travels in Delhi starts from here. Opened for the first time in 1931, this history of India Gate is equally enriching. This 42m high memorial was built in the memory of 90,000+ Indian soldiers who died during World War 1, on behalf of fighting for the British government. It is designed by the British architect Lutyens, who is now considered- the creator of Modern Delhi. If you are visiting this city in winter, then do keep aside a morning in your packed Delhi tour Package, for a leisure walk from India Gate to Rashtrapati Bhavan. But if you are visiting it in summer, then do not worry-as it makes for a pleasant walk during the evenings also. Situated at the end of Rajpath, this gate has the names of all the soldiers inscribed all over it. If you are a proud Indian, then this sight is enough to make you swell for the love of your country. The red sandstones, which went in to making of this imposing structure, had made India Gate a delightful subject for every photographer. If you are a bollywood movie buff, then it must be taken for granted that from numerous films shot in Delhi, you have got an idea how dazzling India Gate looks during night. Witnessing this stunning view for real, can also produce the same long-lasting effect on you.
