India Gate in Delhi was formerly known as the All India War Memorial,this solemn monument was built in 1931 in the memory of the Indian soldiers who died in World War I. Names of 13,516 soldiers are inscribed on its walls. Later in 1971, an eternal flame was lit here in memory of the unknown soldiers who died in the 1971 Indo-Pakistan war. India Gate stands at the end of Rajpath, and is a popular picnic site especially during the hot summer evenings. At night, the gate and the fountains are brightly lit. It is indeed a beautiful sight in New Delhi.
