It is free of cost, but you need to come early to get your seat.
Independence Day Fair.
To make the eve of independence full of faithfulness, you need to attend the independence day fair. One of the significant zeniths commemorated by several events such as the popular march-past of the corps, an exhibition of art-forms from various states, the kite-flying fighting, and scholars exemplifying the National Cadet Corps.

Who can forget the tremendous contribution of the great personality Mahatma Gandhi? If you want to contribute to the work our father of nation did to make us free from the British empire, this place is a must to stop in. Divided into two sects – “Gandhi Smriti” and “International Centre of Gandhian Studies and Research,” this historical place of Delhi is the residence of Mahatma Gandhi. It is a glamorous museum wrapped with a gorgeous garden and a continual flame to mark Indian victory. The memorial furthermore facilitates a multimedia show.
National War Memorial.
Coming back to your home without visiting the home of fearless heroes who have contributed their life for the sake of freedom? NOT FAIR! One of the best historical places in New Delhi is the National War Memorial at India Gate, a built-in memory of the soldiers our country lost during the Indian struggle for independence. The memorial carves the names of the brave Indian soldiers who gave their life struggling for the country. The whole architecture stands on a low base of red Bharatpur stone and rises in stages to a massive molding with lush green lawns surrounded all around it.
It’s better to make Independence day memorable by visiting all the places mentioned above. Make sure you give one day of the year to celebrate the victory of our country. Heed the independence events, celebrated kite flying, and purchased some unique antiques to make the event even more happening.
