Photographer's Note

It is difficult to capture a popular monument as most of the angles are already exploited. However keeping the objective of TE, I'm posting this photo of India Gate for you all.

It is situated on the Rajpath in New Delhi, India Gate (originally called All India War Memorial) was built by Edwin Lutyens to commemorate the Indian soldiers who died in the World War I and the Afghan Wars. The names of the soldiers who died in the wars are inscribed on the walls. Burning under it since 1971 is the Amar Jawan Jyoti (eternal soldier’s flame) which marks the Unknown Soldier’s Tomb.

Following lines are inscribed on the top of the gate:

To the dead of the Indian armies who fell honoured in France and Flanders Mesopotamia and Persia East Africa Gallipoli and elsewhere in the near and the far-east and in sacred memory also of those whose names are recorded and who fell in India or the north-west frontier and during the Third Afgan War.
