this is where you can see the last step taken by Gandhi before he was shot - it is very serene and beautiful place - there is so much to see and one can spend some quiet time here. there are couple of buildings and a small shop for Khadi purchases

This was for me the highlight of our Delhi trip, the gardens were wonderful, peaceful and quiet. One could feel his presence and to walk in his footsteps was surreal. The small museum was a delight and explained his life very clearly.

This is one big garden with a black marble representation of Ghandi celebrated. We ran it saw it and ran out again. You could spend the day roaming the gardens or having a picnic but there is way more to see and do in Delhi!

I have been to the Gandhi Smriti a number of times. Each time the place revels something new about him. However, sadly I had a unfavourable experience during my last visit. I made the mistake of taking a guided tour of the first floor gallery.guide who came with us a very rude and a gruff fellow. First of all he... More

If you like Ghandi's message, you will be touched by the Gandhi Smriti where Ghandi spent the last 144 days of his life and where he was assassinated. You will see where he walked his last footsteps and the stele marking the place where he was killed. A truly inspirational place!

Visited here after the Gandhi museum. Lovely gardens and memorials. The Indra Gandhi memorial was was under construction. I wished there was more information about the rest of the Gandhi family.

A place where you time travel to Indra Gandhi period. A extremely worthy place to visit to go back Indra's period. The most disturbing part of this place is where Indra was assassinated and Rajiv's attire(which he was was wearing at the time of assassination) which is on display. Any one who sees this will lose hope in violence.

This was a very interesting and brief stop for us but the layout and opportunity to literally "walk in the steps of Gandhi" was a very meaningful addition to the museum.
