The focus of this open-air memorial to Mahatma Gandhi is a black marble platform marking the place where the peace leader was cremated after his assassination in 1948. It's a peaceful, beautiful site; memorial ceremonies are held on Fridays.

I was very surprised when I arrived at the site of Gandhi's cremation as it was so tranquil and some how somber. We were stopped a number of times by young couples asking for a picture with us ? A nice place to visit during...More

Here you can see the simple memorial of Bapuji . It is no great building. It is a huge flat structure made of marble with ' He Ram' written on it. There is a small lamp burning perennially. Nothing can fit the simplicity of this...More
