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
  • Great personality, glorious history; historic figure. A very nice museum to visit, very well preserved, clean, neat and we'll organized. Anyone interested in Mahatma Ghandi can examine where he lived, what he did, where he slept and other related material. Two hours visit is enough.
  • Very educational. The walls of the house are full of memorabilia. These include images of his life and also references to his teachings. This is where he last lived and where he took the last walk to his death - marked by footsteps along the path to the point of his assassination.
  • Wonderful place to visit. One can see those things that are used by Mahatma Gandhi. One can also see the path walked on by Gandhi just before his assassination. And the spot where he assassinated.
