Gandhi Smriti used to formerly called as Birla Bhavan built in the memory of great Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi. It surely is an eye opener for everyone in todays world which is full of violence. We feel a serence peace when we visit this beautiful place.

While this is a small garden and museum, visiting here allowed me the opportunity to review Gandhi's life's work and pay tribute to him. A peaceful location amidst the busy city of Delhi!
