RAJPATH AND INDIA GATE AT NIGHT
walk up the Rajpath to India Gate in the evening.
Tonight we catch the #DelhiMetro to Central Secretariat and walk up the #Rajpath to #IndiaGate to see it lit up at night. A beautiful sight along with the lit up government buildings at the other end.
Rajpath which means King’s Way is a ceremonial avenue centrally located in Delhi and stretches from east to west from Rashtrapati Bhavan through Vijay Chowk and India Gate. It is easily accessible by taxi, auto rickshaw and Metro with Central Secretariat being the nearest Station.
India Gate is an “Arc-de-Triomphe” like archway similar to its French counterpart. it commemorates the 70,000 Indian soldiers who lost their lives fighting for the British Army during the World War I. The memorial bears the names of more than 13,516 British and Indian soldiers killed in the Northwestern Frontier in the Afghan war of 1919.
Join us on the continuing story of our four week stay in #NewDelhi, #India, where we spend time in an Airbnb apartment in #LajpatNagar, and take side trips to #Agra and the #TajMahal as well as #Jaipur.
