India Gate

India Gate is one of the not-to-be-missed monuments of Delhi.  It is actually a war memorial built in the memory of the Indian soldiers who gave their life during the First World War at various parts of the world - France, Persia, Africa, etc.  Names of approx. 13000 soldiers are inscribed on the structure.   It is an imposing structure built by Sir Edwin Lutyen and has similarities to the Gateway of India in Mumbai and Arc De Triomphe in Paris.  There is another structure built nearby called Amar Jawan Jyoti in the memory of all the unknown soldiers.  more...
