Gandhi Smriti, New Delhi

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 Edition.

  • Am oasis of calm in the center of Delhi's madness. This is the place Gandhi was assassinated. The simple museum and displays are very moving. The man walked his talk. Sit in silence in the gardens and contemplate his message and it's relevance today. This was my highlight in Delhi.
