India Gate is perhaps one of the most impressive structures built in the capital of India, Delhi with lush green lawns in the backdrop. This historic monument was built as a memorial to commemorate the 90,000 Indian soldiers killed in the first world war. This wonder monument was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens. The construction was completed in 1931 A.D.
Located on Rajpath, the road which leads to the magnificent Rashtrapati Bhawan, the gate is 160 feet high with an arch of 138 feet. The monument was dedicated to the nation 10 years later by the then Viceroy, Lord Irwin.
