History Memorials
in Delhi

Many precious lives were lost during the war and India commemorates the sacrifice in form of memorials erected in Delhi in the memory of lost soldiers. One of the most popular and striking memorial in the city stands at Rajpath named, All India War Memorial or as everyone usually calls it, India Gate. The memorial built in the memory of Mahatma Gandhi post his assassination is addressed as Rajghat where his last rites were performed. There are several more but these two are most significant.
