Very good place to visit as it is historical. It tells the story of Soldiers who lost their lives in the II-world war during British era..
Easily reachable by Metro / auto riksha from New Delhi station.

It was very crowded and there wasn't much to see except a huge structure similar to Arc de Triumph in Paris.

The gate is impressive and beautiful but the amount of people peddling glasses, henna, photos, flags, etc. are a put off. They will not take NO for an answer, pushing their wares into your face and hands.
Other than this, the grounds need some attention. The fountains were not working and there was lots of trash in the gardens.
Would not return.
