India Gate Tour

India Gate, also known as Delhi Memorial or All-India War Memorial, was built in 1931 (designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens) to commemorate the 70,000 Indian and British soldiers who gave their lives fighting for the British Army during World War I between 1914 and 1919.

The sandstone arch monument memorial in New Delhi is about 138 feet (42 metres) in height and bears the names of more than 13,500 British and Indian soldiers inscribed in smaller letters on the monument.

An eternal flame burns 24 hours under the arch to remind us of the soldiers who gave their lives for a better tomorrow.
