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.

  • You get very positive vibes here. This is very calm and quiet place and gives a powerful message "Be the change you want to see". Gandhi ji a noble soul still lives in every body's heart. Salute to the finest statesman.
  • Fantastic tribute to and history of an amazing individual. Some displays could be improved but overall I would absolutely recommend a visit here. It was powerful to learn more of Ghandi's life and trace his final footsteps. You can't help but be moved.
  • So much history here. You are able to boost his prayer area and well as the room where he spent his last few months. He was also assassinated in this place. The memorial has given us me insight into his life and life's work. Would definitely recommend this place. It is also great for school tours.
  • Must visit place for all Indians. Get inspired by Gandhiji- his life and values. Most important place to see in New Delhi.
  • Such a simple living , our Father of Nation had ! ! But not maintained nicely ! Especially Toilets so far - for ages and sick !

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists. For budget accommodations, consider the neighborhood of Paharganj, just west of the New Delhi railway station. Noisy and packed with peddlers of every kind, the area offers some of the least expensive rooms located relatively near major attractions. Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors. Always call or visit the website in advance to check on prices and amenities included.
