Raj Ghat, New Delhi

4.1
#11 of 55 in Historic Sites in New Delhi
See a moving memorial to the father of the nation at Raj Ghat. Situated at the spot where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated, the memorial consists of a stone footpath that leads visitors through well-maintained lawns to a walled enclosure. In the enclosure sits a black marble platform, exposed to the elements and with an eternal flame burning at one end. Take off your footwear before entering the enclosure to pay your respects to the leader of the Indian independence movement. With our online itinerary creator, New Delhi attractions like Raj Ghat can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

    I can definitely appreciate the history here, but the site is really not that impressive compared to other sites in Delhi. If you are tight on time, it is probably best to skip this one!  more »

    It is a very quiet place where is the memorial to Gandhi's ashes. The visit is free and can be fast. The place is beautiful and well maintained.

    I myself with Mr Rana Roy come here to visit here. Very beautiful place, good looking view from every corner, sweet breeze if you rest under tree. You can come with friends and family.

    Place with tons of historical importance and aura to it. But let me tell you, it's one of the prettiest and serene places I have happened to visit in NCR. It's lush green and beautiful.

    Well kept. You need to walk barefoot inside. Its difficult during the summer and they have provided rubber mats which also gets heated up thus failing the purpose. Suggest to use coir mats.

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.
