Dehli IND - India Gate Dehli 04 (BEST VIEW IN LARGEST)
The India Gate is the national monument of India. Situated in the heart of New Delhi, it was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens.

Originally, a statue of George V, Emperor of India stood under the now vacant canopy in front of the India Gate, but it was removed to Coronation Park
together with a number of other British Raj-era statues. Following India's independence, the India Gate became the site of the Indian Army's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, known as Amar Jawan Jyoti ("the flame of the immortal soldier").

Until the 1920s, the Old Delhi Railway Station served the entire city, and the Agra–Delhi railway line cut through what is today known as Lutyens' Delhi and the site of the India Gate on Kingsway (now Rajpath). Eventually the line was shifted to run along the Yamuna river, and when that route opened in 1924, the construction of the memorial site could begin. The New Delhi Railway Station was opened in 1926, ahead of the inauguration of the city of the same name in 1931.

The 42-metre tall India Gate is situated in such a way that many important roads spread out from it. Traffic passing around India Gate used to be continuous until the roads were closed to the public. The lawns around Rajpath throng with people during the evening, when the monument is lit up. Amar Jawan Jyoti- Burning as a shrine under the arch of India Gate since 26 Jan 1971 is the Amar Jawan Jyoti (the flame of the immortal warrior), which marks the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in world war. It was unveiled on 26 January 1972 by the then Prime Minister Smt. Indira Gandhi, in the wake of the 1971 Indo-Pak War.Now it is the pride of all Indians and a prime tourist site in New Delhi.

The India Gate hexagon complex, with a diameter of about 625 metres, covers approximately 306,000m² in area.

The Republic Day Parade starts from Rashtrapati Bhavan and passes through India Gate.
