India Gate is a war memorial, and it is one of the famous tourist destinations in New Delhi. The India Gate was built in 1931 and designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens. India Gate holds high significance. The whole arch stands on a low red foundation of Bharatpur stone and rises in stages to a massive moulding. It is a memorial to 90,000 Indian army soldiers who died in the First World War. Both sides' gate was carved with dates such as MCMXIV and MCMXIX. The top of the gate has a shallow domed bowl filled with oil during the anniversary. Amar Jawan Jyoti, also an important part of India Gate, was later built as a tribute to Indian soldiers who laid down their lives in the Indo-Pakistan War of December 1971. In the nighttime, the place is decorated with colourful lights, which are the main attraction of the spot.
