About India Gate
India Gate is situated on the Raj Path and was commissioned by Sir Edwin Lutyens for paying reverence to the Indian Soldiers, who died during the First World War. The huge walls of India Gate reveal more than 90,000 names of the soldiers who lost their lives during the war. This structure was completed in 1931 and was originally called as the All India War Memorial. It is mainly a 42 m tall gate that is surrounded by beautiful fountains and gardens.
At the base of this structure, there is an eternal flame called 'Amar Jawan Jyoti', which pays tribute to the soldiers who died during the Indian Independence. There is also a boat club and children's park near India Gate that are situated on Rajpath.
