India Gate : Attractions in Delhi


India Gate in the day time 

I am living in New Delhi for last 3 years. I have visited many places in New Delhi during my stay which includes Qutb Minar, Purana Quila, Red Fort, Lotus Temple and Akshardham temple among others. Of all the tourist places I have visited till now, India Gate is my favorite tourist place in Delhi and I often go here to spend evenings especially during summer.


India Gate in the night time

India Gate attracts tourist mainly because of the 42 m high Victory Tower erected to commemorate the Indian soldiers who fought and died in World War II. All along and across there are lush gardens which are kept well-manicured. This place looks magical when the lightings are turned on after the dark.

Usually summer is the best time to visit in India Gate and most of the people come here at the evening time or after the sunset and weekend is the time visited by the most of families. You can spend here some wonderful time after your daily’s work stress.

India gate offers a variety of environment like – children plays inside of the field, balloon seller comes around you and also could eat local street foods such as some popular are Dahi Bhalla, Gol Gappe, Bhelpuri etc., as well as ice cream and cold drink seller. The place takes on the appearance of a fair with cultural potpourri of India on showcase.
