    Beautiful Structure
    India gate is one of the best monuments I've seen in Delhi. We went to the India Gate at night, so we could experience the night life of Delhi. India Gate wears beautiful colors at night and during this time you can enjoy a wide varieties of street foods. Its free to enter any time. But if anyone wants suggestion from me, I'll tell him or her to visit it durin night time, after 7 pm. But it is safe to return from the place before 8.30 pm. Its a must try place in India.

    Impressive Arch that crowns the central mall in Delhi
    The whole area around the India Gate is interesting. You have the arch itself, and then beyond is the war memorial and beyond that is the memorial to those who died in the Indo -Pakistani conflict. Everything makes a tight visual unit and is impressive. There is a parking lot close by for convenience.

    Exceptional service
    India Gate is a magnificent monument located in the heart of New Delhi, India. The grandeur of this war memorial is truly awe-inspiring, especially when illuminated at night. Its architectural beauty, historical significance, and the Amar Jawan Jyoti, the eternal flame, make it a poignant symbol of sacrifice and national pride. Visiting India Gate offers a profound experience, blending history and patriotism in a serene setting.

    Hotel Taj Mahal -- A class act
    Hotel Taj Mahal in Delhi was our first stay among any Taj property. The hotel was built in 1978. The structure and decoration of the hotel really captures the essence of the Mughal era archirecture and design. The grand intricate design that adorns the dome shaped arches at the hotel lobby and its white marbel structure will certainly export you to a time when such grandeur was commonplace during Emperor's time. The quality of room service was impeccable. The service crew was courteous, kind and dedicated. Specifically, I was impressed by the service team led by Reema and Kunal who were attentending to our needs during our stay. I was truly touched by their attentiion to details that made our stay a luxurious and memorable one. Finally, I could have gone to any other top hotels of international repute in Delhi, but nothing would come close to Taj Mahal if you want to experience the world class Indian hospitality that infuses the grandeur of Mughal time. I cannot wait to come back to Taj Mahal again.

    Impressive and well kept area
    An impressive landmark in the centre of some really well kept gardens. It feels like a refuge from the busy city centre and seeing it lit up on certain evenings even more so impressive. There’s plenty of spots where you can jump out of a taxi and wander round and seeing it from different angles worth it. It’s understandable why it’s the famous landmark in the city.

    Lots of scammers, western tourists be careful. Monument is massive and very nice park area once you're in there.
    Was nice to see such an iconic place and got some nice photos. Was a little confusing how to get over to the area from where our tuk tuk dropped us off. Lots of scammers here approaching western tourists so be careful. We got stopped numerous times for photos with locals here and just said no and walked off by the end as we just wanted to enjoy ourselves and see the monument. Very busy area. Good to get in and get out. Be firm with tuk tuk drivers here, ours agreed to 200 rupee to our hotel then tried to get us to pay 400 (200 each) when we got to hotel, just pay the 200 and walk off.

    Nice but not amazing
    Nice area but nothing amazing. I was there on Xmas day so it was packed and many people asked me to take photos with them, which eventually made the experience better. If it was only for the gate it's ok. Some street food around but limited.

    A Fitting Memorial
    Indi’s version of the Arch de Triomphe is a fitting memorial to the Indian troops who died as British troops. The names of many are inscribed in the monument itself. The setting is beautiful, but be careful and keep a watchful eye for pickpockets working the crowd if it’s busy and crowded.

    Many locals here during my visit!
    To get closer to this gate from the parking area, one uses the Underground Passage way. Near this Gate, are a beautiful fountain and a statue. Took several pictures here. Noted that several attractions of New Delhi are located near here, Including government offices and museums.

We can't think of Mumbai without the Gateway of India. We can't think of Kolkata without the Victoria Memorial. Similarly, we can't think of Delhi without the India Gate. India Gate is Delhi's top attraction alongwith few other must see places.
The facility is open for public only till the 10 PM. This needs a relook, It must be kept open till 1 AM at least.

A very big park to bring friends and kids. relax, have a long stroll and enjoy. The India Gate (formerly known as All India War Memorial) is a war memorial located near the Kartavya path on the eastern edge of the "ceremonial axis" of New Delhi, formerly called Rajpath. It stands as a memorial to 74,187 soldiers of the Indian Army who died between 1914 and 1921 in the First World War, in France, Flanders, Mesopotamia, Persia, East Africa, Gallipoli and elsewhere in the Near and the Far East, and the Third Anglo-Afghan War. 13,300 servicemen's names, including some soldiers and officers from the United Kingdom, are inscribed on the gate.

We only viewed the arch and the War Memorial from a distance in a straight line view. It is pretty but I think close up would have done it more justice.

This is a memorial honouring those who fell in the service of India as well as Indian soldiers who fought as colonial troops of the British Empire. Designed in the style of a Romanesque triumphal arch, the structure is rectangular and has four arches, one on each side. You can also get a straight line view of the canopy and the National War Memorial of India from the western side of this memorial which makes for a beautiful vista
