India Gate, the popular hangout zone, is synonymous with Delhi. From morning to evening, one can see visitors here admiring the tall and beautiful architecture. The monument was built in memory of 70,000 soldiers who lost their lives fighting for the British army during World War 1. The monument is 42 m (138 feet) in height and on special occasions, the monument is lit in Indian tricolours. The surrounding gardens serve as ideal picnic spots for families and couples. Several food vendors around the area sell ice creams, snacks, knick-knacks, and many other tasty delicacies.
