With time nearby lands were bought and the construction of other expansions began under the reign of Louis XII. 

With a blend of various architectural designs, this palace had been constructed in a futuristic style with most of the imported raw materials.

Arc de Triomphe which means “Triumphal Arch of the Star", is counted as the most popular monument in Paris, France that needs no introduction. It was erected in 1806, way before the Eiffel Tower by the designer Jean Chalgrinis.

Situated at the core of Place Charles de Gaulle and on the westernmost point of the famous Champs-Élysées avenue, this historically relevant monument was made in honour of all those brave soldiers who sacrificed their lives for France during the Napoleonic Wars and French Revolution.

This architecturally rich yet phenomenal arc houses the names of all French generals and French victories along with the inspiring patriotic quotes and messages on its inner and outer sides, whereas underneath it lies The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from the First World War.

The design and structure of the triumphal arch is influenced by the Arch of Titus in Rome, Italy. Arc de Triomphe, Paris stands tall at the height of 50 meters, depth of 22 meters and width of 45 meters, making it an enormously prominent structure to be admired.

Arc de Triomphe, Paris was the tallest arch in the world until the construction of Monumento a la Revolución in 1938 in Mexico. Additionally, influenced by it, La Grande Arche measuring 110 meters high near Paris and Arch of Triumph, Pyongyang were erected based on the model and perspective of the Arc de Triomphe, Paris which qualifies in the list of world’s tallest arches.
