Standing tall with pride near the Connaught Place region of Delhi is the India Gate. India Gate or the All India War Memorial was built to mark the remembrance of brave soldiers who laid their lives in the First World War of the then undivided army. The names of all the 82,000 soldiers who laid their lives in the war are inscribed on the Gate. The names can be read if one stands just 100 meters away from it. The names that are written are of all those who fought in France, Mesopotamia, Persia, Africa, and Gallipoli. A female nurse who was killed in action in the year 1971 has her name on the gate too. It is a perfect picnic spot for people as it is surrounded by a park where various street vendors can be found selling street food. People visit India Gate during the evenings with their packed dinners that they happily enjoy with their family members. It is also a perfect place to visit when the weather is pleasant. Just in front of the monument is Amar Jawan Jyoti Smarak or Flame of Immortal Soldier which is the pride of India. It is guarded by soldiers from three services of the Indian Army. Wreaths are placed on 26th January every year at Amar Jawan Jyoti by the working Prime Minister of India. Go on and visit the India Gate to pay homage to the martyrs of the Indian army as well as to enjoy a pleasant walk or picnic around the pleasant area.
You can reach India Gate by getting down at Barakhamba Road Metro Station, Delhi. It is on the Blue Line of Delhi Metro and is about 3 km away from India Gate. If you take a taxi or an auto from this station, you will reach India Gate within 15 minutes.
