Raj Ghat, New Delhi

4.1
See a moving memorial to the father of the nation at Raj Ghat. Situated at the spot where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated, the memorial consists of a stone footpath that leads visitors through well-maintained lawns to a walled enclosure. In the enclosure sits a black marble platform, exposed to the elements and with an eternal flame burning at one end. Take off your footwear before entering the enclosure to pay your respects to the leader of the Indian independence movement.

  • Raj Ghat is a great stop in the heart of New Delhi. It is the memorial to Mahatma Gandhi. Lining the entrance is beautiful quotes from Gandhi. You can view the memorial from the elevated grounds that surround the memorial or take off your shoes and give a donation (any amount) to hold your shoes while you walk up to the memorial. Photos and video can be taken. There is no charge to enter the park.
  • Good place. Well maintained and totally filled with green grass,many trees with so many different shapes.Its good for group visits and you can spend the whole day here.The place is too clean and green. The place is great like the great MAHATMA GANDHI and this memorial will never be forgotten by anyone in this memories.
  • It's a place to enjoy with your friends and family. Very calm, clean surroundings and well maintained. Good for meditation. A must watch is " Mahatma Gandhi " samadhi. People from all over the world come there to visit. Peak days are weekends. You can watch lots of school children playing and enjoying there. If you are first time in Delhi, make it in your list of places to visit.
  • Green & Serene environ to spend a thoughtful & introspective evening in Delhi. Vast open spaces for playfulness and weekend retreat take away from Capital's concrete jungle and horny polluted roads. Rich fauna collections besides unique marvelous stones from across the country a beautiful lake & best place for photography too.
  • Nice place to hang out very peaceful place. By seeing those memorial places just remembering their contribution to our nation. Nice garden and nice quotes of Mahatma Gandhi was written
