The Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile is one of the prominent monuments in Paris, built near the western side of the Champs-Élysées at the centre of Place Charles de Gaulle. Louis-Philippe did the inauguration of it in the year 1836.
It was Napoleon Bonaparte's dream to make Paris the most amazing city in the world. During that period of time, the French Army was very powerful and had captured almost every part of Europe. In 1806, he thought of appreciating his army by getting an arc built. These were his words to his army, “You will return home through arcs of triumph.” and this is how the place got its name.
The construction of the arc got over in 1836, almost a decade after the demise of Napoleon. The cost came out after making the Arc de Triomphe was near about 9 million Francs at that time.
