The memorial is good and it definitely gives a sense of pride to be there. Right at the beach it is a must go place specially for older generation.

This structure is a memorial to Mahatma Gandhi and is located very close to Sea Shore. The place was maintained neat and clean. There are stairs leading to the top of the building, from where a better view of the surrounding can be had.

The memorial is clean, well maintained and not slippery. The guard was very helpful and explained to us about the place and what had happened before. We really appreciate his explanation about this historical place and lucky to be here. Thank You Sir.

Visited the memorial last year december. The guard or guide was very helpful to understand what was going on here before. It was so amazing that the sun light comes in Ghandi`s birthday on the spot where his ash jar used to be. They might have set up though... Great historical and educational place to visit.

There could have been more collection other than few photos. You can claim up to the building to have ocean view, but nothing special inside the memorial. The stairs are bit slippery, so be cautious with kids and grown up.

Gandhi mandapam is a nice memorial where ashed of the mahatma were kept before being immersed in the ocean. The hall has one hole in the ceiling right above the square stone pedestal where the ashed were kept. The sun shines right through the hole and sunlight falls on the square pedestal exactly on Oct 2 every year, Gandhiji's birthday... More
