  • This place is know for its history... Place is very calm and neat.. Well maintained by the govt. The seven pillars stand as a beauty to watch. The engaving on the wall is also just awesome If any one travelling through this place this is a one time stop to visit..
  • It is a serene place to pay homage to a great leader. That red ‘blood stone’ creates a sort of humiliation when we stand in front of Rajiv’s portrait. Stone carvings look great. The security is tight and no eating or playing allowed. It is a well maintained vast open space with few tall trees. Better to visit in the morning or evening and avoid noon, as you cannot really enjoy under scorching sun. It is open from 6am to 9pm. There is free parking available.
  • A very well maintained place with high security for obvious reasons. Visiting the place instills a feeling of patriotism. Though there weren't any eateries near by, the experience was eyeful.
  • Great place to spend your evening time. You will definitely feel the patronate feeling when you are there. Also they have scripted the last moments and the greatness of our late prime minister. It has beautifully​ sculpted statues with a wall painting featuring the last day of him. The main highlight of the place is obviously our national flags which waves at a height of 102 ft which is easily visible from the distance. The place is also heavily guarded by CRPF Javaans. Its a relaxing place to escape from the cities rush hour. It's also nearby the NH4 highway which connects Chennai to Bangalore. They also have a well maintained and greenish park. So it's good to spend your weekend there. It also has good parking facility and low entry fees.
  • Very nice and beautiful cool place. Good attempt to preserve the memory of former Prime Minister of India Late Rajiv Gandhi. More scopes are there for making the place more beautiful, it seems. Good security checkup is there. Good for family visit. The place is located in the national highway, so it is easily reachable. No problem for parking vehicles near the place. Good toilet facility is available inside the place.
