Rajpath
New Delhi

India Gate is located in the centre of New Delhi and is 42m high. It is a monument designed in the shape of an arch, much like the Arc de Triumph in Paris and is located in a key road junction in the city.

The arch was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens and was completed in 1931 in honour of the 90,000 soldiers who lost their lives fighting in the British Army during the First World War. There are green areas surrounding the arch which are used as a picnic areas and below the arch is the flame of the immortal warrior.
