Description

The India Gate commemorates the dead Indian soldiers in the First World and the Afghan wars.

It is a war memorial in New Delhi and also has the Indian Army’s “Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.” Locally it is called the Amar Jawan Jyoti.

The India Gate is situated on the Rajpath.

Initially, this structure was called the “All India War Memorial.” This monument was built by Edwin Lutyens.

The names of the soldiers who lost their lives in the wars are inscribed on the walls.

It is 42 meters high and the structure is similar to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

The Amar Jawan Jyoti is a black marble cenotaph. Here, there is a rifle placed on its barrel with a soldier’s helmet at the top.

On every side of this cenotaph, the words “Amar Jawan” are inscribed in gold.

On the four corners there are four torches that are continuously kept lit.
