This 42 m high, towering archway is the centerpiece of Delhi. A war memorial commemorating the 70,000 Indian soldiers who lost their lives fighting for the British Army during World War I, it is surrounded by pristine lawns that are a favorite picnic spot for locals during winter days and summer evenings. Hawkers peddle ice creams and Delhi’s famous street food. A great time to visit is at night, when the 91-year-old arch glows under the floodlights. Also on site is the Amar Jawan Jyoti, an eternal flame commemorating the soldiers who died during the Indo-Pakistan war of 1971.
