About India Gate
One of the most important structures of the New Delhi or the Lutyen's Delhi with a clear British impression is the India Gate and its surroundings.
India Gate is the enormous arch built in the memory of the innumerous soldiers who attained martyrdom during the First World War. The gate is 160 feet high with an arch of 138 feet. The arch also houses the Eternal Flame, a gesture in memory of the Indian soldiers who laid their lives in the 1971 war with Pakistan.
The President's House or the Rashtapati Bhawan standing in symmetry with the India Gate on the Raisina Hills is the magnificent structure that denotes the Raj days and the beginning of Lutyen's Delhi. Earlier built as the residence of the Viceroy of India, when the British shifted their capital from Kolkata to Delhi, it is presently the official residence of the President of India. The road leading to the President's House starts from the India Gate and is called as the Raj Path. On both the sides of the Raj Path are the official buildings of the dignitaris in the Indian Government.
Another structure the British built during the same time, is the Parliament house or the Sansad Bhawan. The Parliament house has all the constructive geometric qualities with 144 pillars and small attic storeys. It is the official meeting hall of both the houses in the Indian Government.
