Technically yes, it is a roundabout, because it is (or was) called
"Connaught Circus".
However, it is so big that its not a roundabout for all practical
purposes - just like India Gate.

Also, the official name is now "Rajiv Chowk" which makes (IMO) even less sense.
(because Chowk in hindi = 4 way intersection)
