Gandhi Memorial in India

The Gandhi Memorial is at Raj Ghat in Delhi on the banks of river Yamuna. The spot where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated in 1948 was marked by a simple square platform of black marble. His last words ‘He Ram’ are inscribed on the platform which lies at the centre of a serene garden. Prayers are conducted on each Friday, the day he was killed. Adjacent to the cremation ground is Gandhi Memorial Museum. Gandhiji’s belongings such as a pair of spectacles, wooden sandals, spinning wheel etc. are the valuable possessions kept here. Historic photographs, paintings and a vast collection of books – all in connection with Gandhiji are also exhibited here.
