India Gate, Delhi

India GateIndia Gate is arguably the best war memorial in India built to commemorate the fallen heroes. During the First World War, 70,000 Indian soldiers fought for the British throughout the world and laid their lives for the empire. Acknowledging the sacrifices, the British Government built the wonderful monument. Designed by Edwin Lutyens, the monument bears the name of 13,516 Indian and British soldiers who lost their lives in the Afghan war in the year 1919.

After a period of 10 years, the monument was dedicated to the nation by the then Viceroy Lord Irwin. Much later another memorial was added to the India Gate after the Independence of India and it was suitably named Amar Jawan Jyoti in respect to all the unknown soldiers who laid down their lives for the security of the nation. There are hotels in Delhi near India Gate and tourists can enjoy the beauty of this historic monument from some luxurious Delhi hotels.

A flame burns continuously here. There is a war helmet over an upturned rifle. Surrounding the imposing structure, you will find a large expanse of lush green field that has now become a fine picnic spot. In summer evenings you will find hoards of people thronging the area. The imposing structure of India Gate truly symbolizes the acknowledgement of a nation for the sacrifice of all those brave-hearts who lived and died for the sake of India.
