It was a long day today, packed with many places, all of which I have seen before. We started at the Indian Gate, and you can see pictures of the gate here.
Built in memory to the of the 90,000 Indian soldiers who died during World War I, and those that died in the Second Anglo-Afghan War the Gate also serves as India’s memorial of the unknown soldier. The gate was designed by Edwin Lutyens as the final point of the Rajpath or Kings Way.
Our next stop was the Jama Masjid Mosque which I have described here from my last visit. Above is a photo of the arches from one of the side walkways. This mosque is considered the ultimate example of Indo-Islamic Architecture, and these arches are an excellent example of how Muslim architects changed the simple round Roman arch to a scalloped arch leaving their signature on the architecture.
