As a part of the Republic Day celebrations the Raj Path (the straight road connecting India Gate to Rashtrapati Bhawan, the official residence of the President of India) and the buildings at the end of the road and nearby are decorated with lights from January 26th to January 29. India celebrates its Republic Day on January 26 and the celebrations come to a close with the Beating Retreat, held on January 29.
India Gate adorned the tri-color (these are the colors of the flag of India) and looked beautiful.
Below is the dome of the Rashtrapati Bhawan as seen from the Central Secretariat.
This is the Raisina Hill, Rashtrapati Bhawan in the middle, flanked by the North and South Blocks on either side.
And up next is the Parliament of India, looking like a jeweled crown.
I had a fabulous time walking from India Gate to Raisina Hills with my mom and brother. There were many families out in full strength enjoying the cool evening.
