Gandhi Smriti, New Delhi

4.4
Pay a visit to Gandhi Smriti, the house where Mahatma Gandhi spent the last months of his life, before being assassinated here in 1948. Built in 1928 by a member of the esteemed Birla family, who often welcomed Gandhi into his home, the building was sold to the Indian government in 1971. Today it stands as a memorial and museum dedicated to the life of Gandhi and his last moments on Earth. Take a tour of the house and grounds to admire numerous items from his life, or view the "Martyr's Column," a monument marking the exact spot in the garden where he was standing when he was shot. Gandhi Smriti is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, New Delhi Edition.

  • This is the location in Delhi where Gandhi was assassinated. It now contains a museum situated on very peaceful grounds. It is a nice quiet place to escape the craziness of Delhi and learn about Gandhi's life and influence. The museum is quite nice but be prepared to do lots of reading as most of the exhibits require you to read except for the interactive items upstairs. You could easily spend a couple of hours here and it's free to get in.
  • Lovely setting, very peaceful and respectful. If you don't know much about Gandhi's life work, go! You will be astounded. And if you already do know, you will be moved. Excellent and detailed writings and pictures, as well as access to Gandhi's final place of residence and the prayer grounds he was assassinated on.
  • Nice little museum of Gandhi's visit. Good for people interested in history, a ton of reading required. Interactive museum was small and not too interactive but neat.
  • Place where our father of nation "MK Gandhi" was assassinated. Place is nicely built and museum is very well developed based on the freedom struggle. Audio visuals are also screened.
  • Worth to visit here to learn about Mahatma Gandhi's life. No entry fee. Clean and well maintenance.
