  • The Rajiv Gandhi memorial is built in the place where he was assassinated when he came for election purpose. worth to visit. this is in sriperumpudur i.e, outskirts of chennai 
  • In fact nothing special we have not found at this location. Yes beautiful, yes majestically, but this place is more suited for the locals to come here and honor the memory of slain Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi here. While passing by, probably worth here to stay and take a stroll.

  • The Memorial is dedicated to the former Premier Radzhivu Gandhi, who according to local residents died tragically in this place was stoned to death. The townspeople are very revered this place, go here with children and large families, put incense and bring flowers and fruits. Contain the Memorial clean. Here is the same around the monument of Gandhi are plaques with the basic tenets of Hindu philosophy, which leader diligently followed and promoted.

  • This is a very nice place to see this historical important. This is where former PM. Rajeev Gandhi was assassinated. Well maintained, very neat. Huge pillars inside. Always you see cops inside and outside. Security check. Toilets are clean. Drinking water available. Good good sculpture inside. When you travel from Chennai Kanchipuram you see this. if you can get a chance.. you need 30 mins to visit this.
  • Great soul never be forgotten... we are moved by the sacrificial life of marty red PM Rajiv Gandhi... Memorial place is well maintained...(amsphotos)
  • The thought behind this beautiful memorial is what makes this place special. The six symbolic pillars in the middle of a landscaped garden, the red stone symbolizing the blood spilt, and the mural depicting the martyr's vision of India are excellent. A serene place that is well maintained by the army, a must visit when you are driving between Bangalore and Chennai.
  • Great legends...Rajiv Gandhi ji...
  • Located in highway easy to go... Could been maintained better
