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.

  • A good place to visit it is kept neat and tidy. Entries completely free Shoes are not allowed inside they they have a special place to keep your shoes. Its better you leave them on your car so that it is easy for to get in and out quickly. Don't bring any eatables inside
  • 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.
  • Awesome place to visit.. a well maintained place. It will be a good experience for who like gandhiji and who follow his thoughts.. The things used by gandhiji is kept for exhibition there . It will be a good experience being there..
  • Very well documented place. Must see. Should set aside an hour or two to see this place. Quite enlightening.
