India Gate

At the centre of New Delhi stands the 42 m high India Gate, an “Arc-de-Triomphe” like archway in the middle of a crossroad. Almost similar to its French counterpart, it commemorates the 70,000 Indian soldiers who lost their lives fighting for the British Army during the World War I. The memorial bears the names of more than 13,516 British and Indian soldiers killed in the Northwestern Frontier in the Afghan war of 1919.

It is one of the most renowned places in India. It is the symbol of pride and prestige in India and considered as one of the national monuments. Travellers from across the world visit India Gate every year in considerable numbers. Any traveller who comes for holiday in India don’t forget to visit it during the trip to Delhi. Tour and Travels Company in India always highlight India Gate in pre- scheduled trip.
