India gate is surrounded by vast green lawns. A flame was burning at the gate which was guarded by defense personnel. Many names of the brave soldiers were engraved in the walls.

Old structure. Tourist attraction. Nothing much around. Just the India Gate and few people walking around. Also few cyclist around the area. Try the local milk tea/chai. Good in winter.

Not only is the grandeur of the India Gate and the immaculately turned out Gaurds , its the entire winter evening experience that is pleasant. Easy access to app based cabs, sumptous street food and fund rides for kids.....a must visit in Delhi on winter evenings.

We went to India Gate around Jan 21 and they had blocked everything off for Republic day. It was still worth the time to get there and take the photos.
