At the centre of New Delhi stands the 42 meter high India Gate, an “Arc-de-Triomphe” like archway in the middle of a crossroad, 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 1. The memorial also bears the names of more than 13,516 British and Indian soldiers killed in the North-western Frontier in the Afghan war of 1919.

At night India Gate is dramatically floodlit while the fountains nearby make a lovely display with beautiful coloured lights. India Gate stands at one end of Rajpath, the area surrounding it is generally referred to as “India Gate.”
