Here you will see the last steps that Mr. Gandhi took. It displays his last 144 days of resting place and the area where he was killed following his provided steps.

Great memorial to M Gandhi. The home where he spent his last days pays great tribute to him and everything he stood for.

The place is very well maintained and has staff who do not bother visitors. The writings, the tracing of the Mahatmas footsteps are all very moving. It touches your soul and one comes away with the resolve to be a better human being. Take children there for them to understand how he united a nation. Excellent photo opportunities. Quiet place...

This was a simple place bringing to mind Gandhi's humility and dedication to making life better for common people. He and Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela are "modern day prophets" for me. I went by myself in a taxi from the YMCA where our group was staying, and the taxi driver napped in the cab while I visited alone.

This is the third Gandhi museum I visited. First two are Mani Bhavan Mumbai and National Gandhi Museum Delhi. This is the best Gandhi Museum. The second floor is really good. There are paintings, pictures, statues and art display. You can also see a short video on Gandhi. Must see.

Take your time to really enjoy all this has to offer. We did not need a guide here. There were dozens of monkeys in the overhead trees!

A nice, calm place to go and spend a leisure time, relax. Dedicated to Gandhi, so you can learn a bit about him and his contribution to the growth of India.

This is where Ghandi stayed and was murdered. It's a dimple house and not a lot to see yet there is a feeling about it. Simple, tranquil and quire moving. Go, experience and contemplate.

It is the resting place of Mahatma Gandhi who struggled for the independence of India. Most of the people come here to pay their respects and you will see that this place is well maintained. It is not a happening place as it is sacred and you will see a sober environment there.

Historic but not really worth it. If you only have one day, I wouldn't suggest wasting your time, there are so many other things to see
