“Historical Place”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

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.

“Just a big concrete”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

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

“Great place but it needs some TLC ...”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

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.
