Either this is dead easy, or you're messin' with my brain. Devious git that you pretend to be, I suspect you're messin' with my brain by doing both in one.

I will give you credit for looking at the side, though. And somehow the scale seems wonky in this view.

Wait a minute! Where are the square panels? You're not sneaking the Infantry Circle replica in, are you?

And the keystone shouldn't be intersecting with the cornice thingie, should it?

Does look like a copy of India gate. Not a very good copy though.

In a theme park? Or maybe in Khadagwasla?

Can't bear down on it, but suspect our boy is still in Pune showing us the FTii replica that's dragged out from time to time, as at Independence Day celebrations, to display the Amar Jawan Jyoti Memorial replica.

Gotta go make dinner. Will study later – much later.

Yes, it does look like the one at Film and Television Institute of India.

Had trouble finding a shot that included the side of the replica with light on it:


Most of the photography in other sources appears to have been directed by snotty himself, that is, full frontal with the side hidden or else with the side in complete darkness.

Snotty takes great efforts into getting something worth while for you folks. Not only does he take odd shots for you, he makes sure others do so too! A bit of appreciation for that wouldn't be out of place.

Well done hfot2 for getting the place in time shorter than expected and GP for confirming the same.

Puzzle over.

Actually, you've been cranking out good stuff for a considerable while now. But I can't bitch about that (except for the bald-faced lie that your puzzles are easy); so I have to resort to old complaints.

Thanks. Bet we cranked you off by getting there so soon. Actually, I was stumbling all over myself till GP jarred me out of my box by asking about theme parks. That lead to a search of Theme Parks Pune, which did diddly. But what about Pune Replica of India Gate? Curiously, the operative word was Replica: the search responded with a replica of the Amar Jawan Jyoti Memorial. Didn't really seem to care that India Gate has been repurposed as a chhatri for the memorial.
