This is understated in deference to Gandhi's own character. Surprisingly moving. A polished granite slab with fresh flowers and an eternal flame. You can walk round the walls and right up to it. Doesn't take a lot of time and worth the effort.

A lovely and fitting tribute to Gandhi. Green, peaceful and informative. It was a public holiday the day we visited so was extremely busy. I accidentally left my camera on an outdoor seat on a main walkway. It seemed fitting that when I returned 20 minutes later it was just as I left it. The toilets were not nice but... More

The place is a temple. The sounds of the Mahatmas favourite hyms fills the air and takes you down to those days of sacrifice, struggle and austerity. Few places in India, except religious ones where you may find a holy quiet. Clean, fresh air and rolling gardens. Go for it. Or you haven't felt the essence of India.

A must-do for any traveller and local. Gandhi Smriti oozes history and culture, whilst also portraying the story of Gandhi's legacy and his death. There are countless articles, quotes and photographs mounted on walls to look at. The staff are also very helpful in sharing information about Gandhi and his work.

This place is very symbolic. You can see Gandhi bedroom and the last steps of his life which are marked on the floor. Also his tomb is there. There is a museum which shows videos and pictures of this great man 's life. I liked it, but you do not need to spend much time there in my opinion.

What a wonderful place!! So peaceful with lots of information about Ghandi. Saw where he lived and worked. The footprints of his last journey were very poignant . Very spiritual and could have spent longer there than we did. A place to go to.
