Morning walkers arrive at the India Gate early
This is what President House looks like from the base of India gate
India Gate, an important monument of Delhi, is a memorial built in commemoration of more than 80,000 Indian soldiers who were killed during World War I. It is an 42 meters high arch and was designed by the famous architect Edwin Lutyens. This monument is made of red stone and INDIA is written on both sides on the top of the arch. Names of over 70,000 Indian soldiers are inscribed on the walls of the monument . At the base of the India gate there is another memorial, the Amar Jawan Jyoti that was added after independence. This eternal flame was lighted in commemoration of the unknown soldiers who laid their lives to serve this nation. The lush green lawns, Children Park and the famous boat club around India gate attract hundreds of visitors daily. Sunrise at India Gate is a lovely sight, I had to wake up a little early to capture it but I realised, it was absolutely worth it. The experience was nearly as good as the evenings we spent at India Gate as kids, eating ice creams and enjoying on the swings at the Children Park.
