Fantastic memorial tribute for the country. Everything else is a disappointment. You get hassled by venders, no proper facilities, nothing is maintained. Will not be recommending India gate. There are other better places to visit.

Nice place to visit. But no facilities. Hawkers trying to fleece money. Ongoing development work seemingly destroying the ambience of the place.
