About India Gate In New Delhi

Located in Rajpath, India Gate is one of the most prestigious monuments built-in memory of the India officers who were brutally murdered in the North West province during the first World War. India Gate New Delhi is situated at the heart of the capital city. It is hardly 2.3 km from the Rashtrapati Bhavan, the President of India’s residence, which is on the extreme east of the sacramental boulevard Rajpath.

History of India Gate

The India Gate was initially known as the All India War Memorial. It was constructed in the memory of the 82,000 soldiers who lost their lives fighting for the British Empire in World War I and the Third Anglo-Afghan War. These brave soldiers were an integral part of the Undivided Indian Army. The structure was undertaken as part of the Imperial War Graves Commission (IWGC) in the year 1917 in an initiative started by the British Imperial Mandate. Duke of Connaught laid the foundation stone on 10 February 1921, where members of the Indian Army attended the memorial ceremony. The project was completed in 1931 and was inaugurated on February 12, 1931. The then Viceroy, Lord Irwin inaugurated the structure. It is not only a war memorial but also a symbol of India’s rich cultural heritage.

The Architecture of India Gate

The architect of India Gate is late Edwin Lutyens who laid the founding stone of the memorial. The marvelous stone memorial is 42 meters high and pays homage to the 90,000 Indian Army Bravehearts who died fighting for the country in the first World War and the Afghan Conquest of 1919. The whole structure is built up of sandstone and the height of the curve is 136 inches and 87.6 inches respectively. India Gate is considered the main entryway which was developed in New Delhi. The dividers of the memorial have the names of the officers engraved on them. Besides the dividers, an interminable fire burns in honor of the Amar Jawan called as the Amar Jawan Jyoti. He is also credited with the designs of sixty-six war memorials in Europe. The design of India Gate’s arch is a masterpiece which is also similar to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, France. India Gate is located in the middle of a hexagonal complex. It has a diameter of 625m and occupies a total area of 360,000 sq meters. Height of India Gate is 42 m and width is 9.1m. The building is made up of red and yellow sandstones. The structure is erected on a flat base and rises in asymmetrical steps. On a closer look at the India Gate, you will be able to notice the features distinctly.

The arch invites hundreds of national and international tourists who flock here every day to witness the inextinguishable fire of patriotism and appreciate the memorial marvel. One can easily spot endless vendors buzzing around the memorial arch to boost their business. Find an opportunity to try the local street food available in a variety. During the late evening, a few India Gate events take place such as the vibrant light show lighting up the place dramatically.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      New Delhi (Delhi), India 227 The best ! Review of Pearly Gates Lanka Reviewed 2 days ago When I booked the tour through Pearly gates I was expecting good service, but ended up being totally overwhelmed by the experience I had with this company. I first contacted Nimni over phone and was happy at her prompt answers and friendly tone.I booked with her soley on the basis of what I could guage of her over conversations on phone.( Travel Triangle was the aggregator) She had promised me a good guide cum driver and a big van for the three of us (my husband, son and I ). Rikfy picked us up from my hotel first ( I was atteding an international conference) and then my family from the airport and the next seven days we spent in Paradise ! He was a careful driver, a wonderful guide and a true friend. Attentive at all times, smiling advising, he made our tour truly special. Behind all this was Nimni - calling us to find if everything was ok. They had booked good hotels, the travel by van was very comfortable but most important - the personal touch at every moment by Rikfy made everything special. On the last evening we ordered dinner at the restaurant in Hotel Ocean Colombo but when the food didnt come even after almost an hour we were very upset. We called Rikfy and though it was after 10.30 pm he came and took us to an Arabian restaurant. As some of us are diabetic this was a life saver !.I recommend Pearly gates to everybody if you want true service with a smile,and Nimni and Rikfy really make you feel at home in Sri Lanka !

    • Trip to Himachal

      Some of the hotels are good but locations are not easily accessible particularly when there are aged tourists with you. As for New Delhi hotels, please check with the hotel authorities whether they really meet star standards. For example, Good Luck hotel at Delhi does not fulfil the standards of a three star hotel. They don't even have plates to serve the food. Manali Hotel was the best. Hotel at Shimla was very co-operative and extended all possible assistance. On the way back, New Delhi hotel was very good. In all the hotels, except Good Luck, the staff members were very helpful.

No issues faced till the end of the trip. The trip was perfect. Except one little issue. The pick up point of the bus from Delhi was not confirmed earlier. The pick up point changed thrice and it was a lot of inconvience. Apart from that, everything perfecto!

      Overall had a good experience except that the hotel provided to us at Manali was not as good as in Shimla. Also it took much more time communicating between all cities than mentioned in itenery like it took more than 10 hrs from Delhi to Shimla, more than 11 hrs from Shimla to Manali and more than 16 hrs from Manali to Delhi. It should have been mentioned beforehand. Our driver took us to a apple orchard near Manali which was very nice.

      It was a good trip with a great driver. But had some dissatisfaction with the way the travel agent from Carlo travels supported. The check-in timings of the hotels are not mentioned in the voucher because of which had to pay an extra amount as we reached early before the check-in time. I have also sent my flight tickets to the agent well before to plan the schedule accordingly. They should have informed me before itself regarding the same.
