India Gate, formally known as the All India War Memorial, was completed in the year 1931. It’s located in Rajpath, the royal way which leads to the President’s residence. The names of the martyrs are etched on the body of this 42 m high India Gate. The place is illuminated with thousands of lights and that creates a gracious impact at night. The edifice is surrounded by lush green and that together paired well is the intrinsic spirit of the India Gate. The foundation stone of this magnanimous structure was laid by the Duke of Connaught in 1921 and dedicated to the nation in 1931 by the then Viceroy, Lord Irwin.
