The gate is a national monument and worth the trip if you have not been there previously. We went on a tour in a private car, but didn't get out to walk around. The photo opportunity is good.

It's just a gate ! Similar to the Arc de Triomphe but in lovely gardens.
You do get hassled by the sellers but its a nice walk.

This is a monument built in memory of war heroes,who laid their lives in world-war 2.
This is guarded by soldiers.There is a flame burning 24*7 in 4 pots around the monument.
It was very hot. There was no arrangement of any shelter or portable water or any place to take rest

The 42 meters high India Gate is a Memorial for the Indian soldiers who lost their lives during the first world war. Their names (85.000 in total) are inscribed on the walls of the gate.
The India Gate is Edwin Lutyens monument to commemorate the soldiers of India who fought and subsequently died during World War I and also the Afghan Wars. The monument sits at the eastern end of Rajpath and was built in 1931.

On the walls of the walls of the monument are the names of all the 90,000 fallen soldiers who died in those earlier wars !

Next time I will search the time to spend there a time sitting with all that people in the grass, with the beautiful view of the Indian Gate illuminated.
