Capital identity: India Gate is the iconic structure that everyone identifies with New Delhi. The India War Memorial (as it was originally called) is dedicated to Indian soldiers who died in WW1. Designed by Edwin Lutyens, the foundation stone of the memorial was laid on February 10, 1921, by the then Duke of Connaught, and inaugurated in 1931 by then Viceroy Lord Irwin.
