Remind me about Arc de Triomphe in Paris! This India Gate became a landmark of New Delhi. The original name's All India War Memorial. It's a huge gate designed by Edwin Lutyens [1869-1944] in 1911 as a monument for Indian and British soldiers who died in World War I and in battle of the North-West Frontier Province and Afghan War III. Their names are captured on the four sides of the wall and an eternal flame burns in memory of unknown soldiers who passed away in Indo-Pakistan War [1971]. And facing this gate can be seen a sandstone canopy where's statue of King George V was placed on top. Now this statue moved to Coronation Park.
