All India War Memorial aka The India Gate is located at the center of the capital city Delhi being dedicated to soldiers who gave their life while fighting in first world war during the period 1914-21. So paying your tribute to these soldiers is a must when visiting this place.

 India Gate War Memorial

It was Sunday evening around 4 Pm beautiful Sunny day and Sun was about to set and I along with my travel companion Prashant took a metro from Noida to Central Secretariat and the main reason for visiting this place was as we have heard and read so much about this place but never visited it before hence it was like a void in our travel trips.

The Journey..!!

We reached Central Sercritrait and were confused which side to take exit so we played a bluff and took an exit from Gate No. 1 and via GPS we tracked our path towards India Gate. But Our Bluff was wrong we took the long route towards India Gate for the same I would suggest you Take Exit from Gate No. 3 or 4.

Note: – Take Exit No. – 3 or 4 from Central Secretariat to Easily Reach India Gate.

So wrong route caused us a long walking trip to India gate, we walked around 3-4 Km on clean asphalt roads of Delhi, but it was fun to watch high-end cars, trees both side of the road, traveling mode was on..!!

After walking about 30-35 min we saw the first glimpse of the beautiful India Gate, there was so rush due to the weekend, everybody was in a mood of joy with their colleagues, friends and family members. There is a pond near the India Gate in which children were using it as a swimming pool 😛 and in between, there is water shower was also running.

So beautiful scenes were out their sunset, crowded, food vendors shouting to engage customers in eating Ice cream, Golgappas, Budia k Baal 😛 (Sweet puff), what else you need to make your Sunday to a Funday.

As we came near the India Gate there was a flame burning in between the war memorial and it is known as Amar Jawan Jyoti. The eternal flame burns day and night under the arch to remind the nation of soldiers who laid down their lives in the Indo-Pakistan War of December 1971.

India Gate ( All India War Memorial)

The establishment stone of India Gate was laid by His Royal Highness, the Duke of Connaught in 1921 and it was planned by Edwin Lutyens. The landmark was devoted to the country 10 years after the fact by the then Viceroy, Lord Irwin. Another dedication, Amar Jawan Jyoti was included substantially later, after India got its freedom. The everlasting fire consumes day and night under the curve to help the country to remember fighters who set out their lives in the Indo-Pakistan War of December 1971.

The History is intact still every year on 26 January (Republic Day of India) Prime Minister of India pays homage to these martyrs soldiers.

So, impeccable scenes were out there one can experience the beautiful ambiance at the time of sunset and also in monsoon season here at India Gate,  So after spending approx 1 hour here, we headed towards Rashtrapati Bhawan which is again an impressive monument built in Mughal style the house of the president of India, walking through the lush green garden towards the Viceroy’s House.

Rashtrapati Bhawan ( Viceroy’s House)

The British designer Edwin Landseer Lutyens made a totally new city out of Delhi, and at the crown of the capital, on Raisina Hill, he fabricated one of the most terrific images of energy, the Rashtrapati Bhavan. It was around 6:30 pm the sun was just about to set and we entered the premises of the president house after having a walk of around 2-3 km.

Bloggers

We were tired but the zeal to watch the premises of the president’s house was never less, we entered and though it was dark we captured some of the great moments. Few people told us that if we would have come earlier we would have watched the museum inside, so if you go then do watch it as it is the most fun place to watch the history of India, all detailed knowledge about India gate its construction, rulers, etc will get to know over there.

So, after clicking few pics over there we were very happy that our day was well spent going through India Gate War Memorial which is indeed a must visit place and later on visiting Rashtrapati Bhawan which is a very clean and beautiful place.

I hope this blog will help you when visiting Delhi as India Gate is a must visit Itinerary when coming here in Delhi.
