    The writing on the walls...

    Favorite thing: Names of soldiers who died fighting for the British-Indian army during World War 1.
    Many of them died in faraway lands- Africa, Europe, the Far east... There are many names, and you probably will struggle to read them, but if you look carefully, you`ll see them all inscribed.
    The Gate, however, is barricaded for security reasons, and you cant walk up all the way to the monument. You can still go up close enough to have a good look or picture. The best way to see the names on the monument is from the sides, which lets you get up closer than from the front or back...

    Favorite thing: A monument to the forgotten British-Indian soldiers of the first World War...
    A popular spot for locals to head out with their families and sit around - to the sprawling lawns around India gate/ Rajpath. Its pretty busy on weekends and also in the winter months, and theres usually a picnic atmosphere here...

    Favorite thing: See the India Gate, a war memorial erected in honour of soldiers who died during the First World War, dedicated to the Unknown Soldier. This imposing structure (42m high) has an eternal flame to honour the memory of those heroes, and it bears the name of the 85,000 Indian Army Soldiers who died in the campaigns of WW1, and the conflicts of 1919.

    Favorite thing: We did not have any time here our guide was rushing as around to get us to a emporium, to earn money out of us, and when you complain they keep telling you we don't earn a lot of money.

    Fondest memory: Being without our Driver and Guide.
