The Basics

The India Gate was built to commemorate Indian members of the British Indian Army killed during World War I and the Third Anglo-Afghan War. In the 1970s, the eternal flame (Amar Jawan Jyoti) was added to remember Indians who died in the Indo-Pakistan War. Around 13,000 soldiers’ names are inscribed on the gate.

The gate is popular among both local and international visitors. Usually visited on half- and full-day sightseeing tours of Delhi, it’s a particularly attractive place to take photos. It doesn’t take long to see the gate itself, so a visit here is best combined with a fuller sightseeing trip that may also call on the Red Fort, Lotus Temple, Humayun’s Tomb, Qutub Minar, and other sites.

Delhi Agra and Jaipur in 3 Days - Golden Triangle Tour India
Bad- mix up in schedule required pick up at 5am (no breakfast) and 6am (with box breakfast we couldn't eat due to raw vegetables). Long days and the tour owner was belligerent on the phone.Good- the van, driver and tour guides were excellent - could not have been better and we enjoyed ourselves immensely
Excellent tour with fun and facts!

I booked this tour to see the best if the surrounding areas and we had a BLAST! Every person was very friendly and accommodating. We were safe and hotels were very nice with the 4star option. Dinesh, our driver, took great care of us and the vehicle was very clean everyday. We were in a car, nut a big bus which was a BIG positive of this tour as it allowed us to cusomize our experiences. All the tour guides Dinesh, Deepack, and Vinaj were very friendly and made our time excellent. They knew the best camera angles and the tastiest restaurants! We learned so much at a comfortable pace. * The tour lists 3 days of activities because 4th day is spent driving back to Delhi. We had an excellent time and would highly recommend this tour!
Sharing in the Gems of India

A huge thank you to Sartaj and his team in Tours707. I had an awesome driver Shaymo Singh(I hope that's spelt correctly) who expertly navigated his way through the crazy streets of Dehli, Aggra and Jaipur. He also shared some insight on some of the places we passed, and slowed at certain spots for me to take another quick photo from the window (my other craze - photography). Thank you for buying me that first cup of chai tea the first day, along the road trip from Dehli to Aggra. I had to use all my cash up on my disastrous mixup upon arriving on the wrong side of Dehli at 23:00 at night. Thank you to Sartaj who helped when the atms in Dehli and Aggra just wouldn't recognise my cashpassport card. Finally I could draw cash again on it when we got to Jaipur. A special mention goes to the guides who were organised, knowledgeable, and who were patient with my need to take just one more pic. Dheeraj ( meaning patience) took me on a wonderful historical cultural experience of Dehli when we explored a mesmerizing Muslim fort; Gandhi's crematory memorial; an amazing Sihk sanctuary and a view of the Lotus temple before we headed on the long road to Aggra. I soon met, Mobin Shah revelled in sharing the history of Aggra, the beauty of the Taj Mahal, and the impressive Aggra Fort. I wish I could have stayed another day... On the third day Bharat Singh guided me through the amazing pink city of Jaipur. The Amurfort was just awe inspiring with its magnitude and powerful history. Its walls surrounding the old city along the hill side reminded me of the Great Wall of China. Bharat also journeyed with me on the history surrounding the City Palace, the elephant sanctuary and the biggest ancient time tool in the world. He managed to find a foreign exchange outlet so I could settle the outstanding cash payments. The afternoon was then for me to rest and reflect on the awesome journey. After a slight sleep-in and a late breakfast, Shaymo ensured my safe journey back to Dehli for my homeward bound flight hopping leg . Truly grateful to all for sharing these beautiful gems of India with me amongst the choas of people, traffic and the sacred cows that roamed everywhere. Angie Butkovic (South Africa)

How to Get There

It’s not a great place to walk around due to the fast traffic and large distances between points of interest.

When to Get There

You can tour India Gate at any time, but at night, when it is lit up, is a particularly attractive time to visit. If you’re booking a private sightseeing tour, request to see India Gate after dark. During India Republic Day (January 26), the streets around it get very busy with crowds and military parades.

Touring Lutyens’ Delhi

Lutyens designed much of New Delhi in the 1920s–1940s and gave the capital’s administrative areas their character. Touring the parts of Delhi designed by Lutyens is a good way to learn about the colonial history and architecture of the city. Also visit Connaught Place and Rashtrapati Bhawan. Private tour packages can be designed around the theme of Lutyens’ Delhi.
