India Gate and Rajpath

Delhi, the national capital, has remained a vital political hub since centuries. When you think of Delhi, one of the first monuments that come to your mind is the iconic structure called India Gate. This arch shaped structure was designed in 1931 by British architect Edwin Lutyens in honour of the soldiers of the Indian British Army who fought until death in World War I and Indo-Afghan wars. This 42 meter tall architectural design draws inspiration from Paris monument and was originally called ‘All India War Memorial’. The Amar Jawan Jyoti, added post- independence, signifies the sacrifices of Indian soldiers in the 1971war against Pakistan. Surrounded by lawns and parks, India Gate is at its best in the evenings and is flocked by tourists and locals.

The Rajpath literally means a “path for the kings” is the most prominent road that extends from the Rashtrapati Bhavan (President’s residence) to India Gate. The eastern end of the 3 km stretch meets the India Gate while the North and South blocks of the Secretariat building are located at the western end. As you drive from the India Gate towards west you get a glimpse of the historic Parliament House towards your right. The Republic Day parade is held at Rajpath each year on 26th January with full grandeur.
