We stopped here as part of a private tour of Delhi. India Gate is a massive structure, in sandstone, very imposing and not to be missed when visiting Delhi.

Symbol of Delhi and India. Beautiful architecture. All is fine but I was shocked to see how dirty and chaotic the area is. There are roadside vendors selling everything from food to toy to ornaments. I was there on a Sunday evening and the crowd...More
