At the centre of New Delhi stands the 42 m high India
Gate, an "Arc-de-Triomphe" like archway in the middle of a crossroad. Almost
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 North-western Frontier in the Afghan war of 1919.
