Worth a quick visit - free, so price is good! View up the avenue to government buildings is unfortunately limited due to persistent Delhi ‘fog’. Gate is impressive, good for a few photos.

It is not only the gate tjat you visit but the long road up to the parliament buildings modelled after the Pall Mall in London. It is a busy area and offers some fantastic photo opportunities. We were warned to be careful of our belongings...More

India gate is very beautiful in all aspect. The marble it is made of the peaceful environment and the huge gate all look great.

Visiting India Gate a year after being at the Thiepval Monument also designed by Lutyens is a doubly moving experience.

A great monument and attraction - even better that it's free to see; Note that you'll be harassed and solicited by multiple vendors trying to sell their photography services, snacks or souvenirs.

because of the smog in November, it's not a nice day to enjoy the beauty of the monument. Quite large area with lots of tourist around. It's quite interesting that the locals really like to stop in front of you and listen to what you...More

Great site spoilt by beggars and being bombarded by locals to buy crap like stickers. Come for a short stay to see the site and try your best not to make eye contact.

You can see this monument from a long way off. There were lots of people there,mit was very busy. Lots of street sellers. Plenty of souvenirs.

The history is interesting and its a landmark that is recommended by tour guides as a thing to see. It should be seen like Big Ben should be seen in London, but like Big Ben once you've seen it that's it
