India Gate at DuskAlthough the India Gate is grand in any light, the site transforms at dusk when locals gather for picnics and social gatherings. Often you will be asked to join an impromptu cricket match or to enjoy a slice of birthday cake, all with the iconic archway as your backdrop.
The monument resembles the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, and commemorates the 71,000 soldiers who lost their lives in World War I. Stroll the grounds and stay until nightfall when the nearby fountains illuminate with colored lights.
